Humans are incredibly ingenious as exhibited by the technology revolution that we currently live in. From cell phones and computers to self-driving cars and drones, we are surrounded by inventions that make our lives easier.
The stairlift is one of those inventions that have allowed those with disabilities, mobility issues, or the elderly to stay in their homes longer. They are one of the most overlooked inventions that have made our lives easier.
Able Care Group in New Jersey offers the best stairlifts, vertical platform lifts, and wheelchair ramps for those who need them. Below, we’ll take a closer look at curved stairlifts. Contact us today to get started!
What is a Stairlift?
A stairlift (or stair glide, chair lift, or stair chair) is a device that usually runs on electricity or a battery that lifts people up and down stairs. These devices are quite simple when you think about it. A rail is installed either along a wall or on the treads of the stairs. Then an attached chair moves up and down along the rail with just a push of a button.
WHAT IS A CURVED STAIRLIFT?
Stairlifts were originally designed to be straight. They are parallel to your stairs and are best suited for staircases with no turns, bends, or landings. However, many people don’t have a completely straight stairwell that goes up to the second floor of their home. Thus, the need for a curved stairlift fueled this invention.
Curved stairlifts use a rail system that can curve along with your stairwell. Most of these are custom made since most people’s house’s stairways are unique. Thus, with a curved stairlift, you can still go up and down the stairs in one continuous motion. Plus, with a curved stairlift, you can park the chair out of the way of the stairs so it’s not a hazard.
You can conceivably install two straight stairlifts instead of one curved stairlift, but that would require you to get on and off them mid-way, which may not be the safest idea. Plus, it may just be way too inconvenient. Curved stairlifts can be installed outdoors as well.
