Obviously, when you physically cannot go up and down the stairs in your home, you know you need a stair lift. But it's also a good idea to get a stair lift if going up and down the stairs is uncomfortable and/or contributing to a worsening physical condition in your knees or legs.
Another telltale sign that you need a stair lift is when you (or your loved ones) become concerned about your safety when you utilize a staircase. Unfortunately, it only takes one fall to inflict potentially dangerous injury.
The inclined wheelchair lift folds up when not in use, which allows for the most access to a staircase when the wheelchair lift is not in use. That way, both the lift users and non-users get the most accessibility out of the building together.

Adam Fine of Accessible Design & Consulting is in the business of modifying homes and buildings for seniors, baby boomers and people with disabilities. When asked about the value of stairlifts he says, “We perform hundreds of home accessibility assessments each year. Although many of them don’t include a stairlift installation, we discuss the possibility of providing a stairlift at some point in the future in approximately 90 percent of our in-home evaluations. Stairlifts are an important part of planning for the future.”
A stair lift is a chair that climbs up and down a staircase on a motorized rail attached. While getting up and down the stairs safely is the primary concern, today’s top quality lifts include numerous features to maximize comfort, ease of use and attractiveness in the home.
