Stairlift Safety

Stairlifts can be necessary for a range of different reasons, and in each case they will be providing someone with a new freedom they've not had before. Some people may have a disability or injury which requires them to be in a wheelchair, meaning they can't use their legs or stand up, which is why a stairlift is necessary. The elderly are the most common users of stairlifts, as they are the most susceptible to arthritis and aches and pains associated with joints, meaning they often can't bend their knees at all. A perch stairlift can help those unable to bend their knees, as they don't require the user to sit down at all.

Stairlifts need to be safe, as people could quite easily fall off of them as the stairlift ascends or descends. Most stairlifts are equipped with safety belts in order to keep people on their seat as they use them. Many people don't feel the need to be safe on a stairlift as they don't consider it a danger, however people unable to move their legs quickly are at more danger, as they can't stop themselves if they fall out, meaning a stairlift must be safe for its user at all times.
