At the same time, it isn’t practical for someone else in the household to carry the disabled person up and down stairs. Ask the mother of a baby or toddler about carrying a 30 lb. child up a staircase several times a day. Now imagine carrying the equivalent of at least four toddlers up and down the stairs. It would be a daunting challenge even for a fit, strong adult to carry a lightweight adult up the stairs. There are a number of household devices and products that help senior citizens maintain their independence for as long as possible, from simple things like glucose meters to chairs that help them rise to a standing position, to personal alarm systems worn on a belt. Stair lifts are a big expense, but they can add immeasurably to the quality of life of the person who has trouble with stairs, and to the quality of life to a caregiver or other member of the household who had been tasked with helping the disabled person navigate the stairs.
A stair lift is not only something that has a lot of significance for the concerned people, but is also a major investment. This is the reason that makes it important that a stair lift has to be just right and adequate to the needs as well as safe. If you are the one for quality, then two manufacturers are there who are famous for their best quality. One is Stannah and the other is Bruno. Stannah is a UK manufacturer while the latter is a US manufacturer of stair lifts. The manufacturers and models for the straight and curved stair-lifts differ and there are different companies that have established a great name in their respective kinds of stair lifts. For the curved stair lift, ThyssenKrupp Access and Bruno manufacture the most popular and top quality models. ThyssenKrupp Access offers the model Stair Glide and Flow II in curved stair lifts and Bruno makes the curved stair lift, which is the Electra-Ride III.
While the maintenance of mobility in the event of a power outage is a huge advantage of a DC stair lift system, that advantage is tempered by the cost of replacing batteries every 12 to 18 months, which can run up to $100 a pop for most stair lift batteries. On the other hand, DC stair lifts make less of a demand on the home electricity system, meaning that electric bills will be somewhat lower for DC powered lifts. The batteries of a DC powered stair lift charge in one of two methods: station charging or the use of a charge strip. With station charging, permanent charging stations are positioned at each end of the rail. Charge strips allow the lift to charge at any point along the track. Today’s rechargeable batteries are reliable and hold a charge better than old models. The typical stair lift battery will stay charged through about 8 trips up and down the track, though it will vary based on how long the staircase is and how heavy the person it is transporting is.
