There are many innovations being made in the field of accessibility equipment and new features are being added on a continuous basis to the new products to further facilitate the users of the equipment and to ensure their safety as well. The manufacturer that you choose for getting the stair lift depends on the kind of features you want your stair lift to have and the kind of accessibility options you’re looking for. Some of the most well known models of star lifts in the market are the Electra-Ride Elite, Citia, Stair-Glide, Excel and the Electra-Ride III. Bruno is one of the best manufacturers not only in curved stair lifts but also for straight ones. Another one of the best manufacturers of straight stair lifts is Savaria Concord as well ThyssenKrupp.
The biggest danger with AC powered stair lifts is that during a power failure, the stair lift will not function. Early versions of stair lifts were all AC powered. Trailing electrical cables presented tripping hazards, and the lifts moved in a jerky, start-stop manner due to the nature of the AC powered motor. At that time there wasn’t much choice because battery technology had not advanced as far as it has today. Today, DC powered stair lifts that only recharge from the household supply of electricity are the most popular lift chair designs. With DC powered stair lifts, if the power goes out, the battery can’t charge, but the lift will still be functional until the battery’s charge runs out. These models are quieter than AC models, too.
Stair lifts are devices that are attached to the treads of staircases to safely move someone who is elderly or disabled up or down the stairs. They consist of a track, usually made of aluminum, a chair attached to the track, and the electronic controls that make the chair move up or down the track. Stair lifts are powered by alternating current (AC), which is hooked up to the household electrical system, or with direct current (DC), which uses a battery that recharges from the household electrical system, and does not require use of home electricity to work properly.
