Heavy Duty Stairlifts

Stairlifts can meet many different needs. The primary use for a stairlift is as assistance with living at home for the elderly. The elderly are more prone to arthritis and other aches and pains that occur in the joints, so a stairlift will mean that they can get up and down the stairs without causing themselves some real pain. Stairlifts also help with assisted living for those with disabilities who need help getting up and down that stairs, as well as people who suffer from weight problems and can no longer climb their stair case.

Finding a stairlift that will suit your exact needs can be a hard task, because different companies manufacture their stairlifts in different ways. Some stairlifts are only suitable for use with the elderly, as they don't come down low enough for those with a disability, and they can only take up to a certain weight leaving out those with weight problems. There are companies that specifically design their stairlifts for a single purpose and they won't be suited for anything else. In cases like this it can be discouraging if you need a stairlift that will take your weight, but no one is providing a solution that fits you.
