Using a Stair Lift in Your Atlanta Home is Safe & Easy

Using a stair lift in your Atlanta home is so easy, even a child can do it! If a friend or loved one has a stair lift in their home, you may be familiar with how safe and easy it is to operate a stair lift. Many of the stair lifts we install are manufactured by Handicare. They are economical, attractive and safe to operate. Quoting from the Handicare website, “A stair lift has three basic components. Firstly, a track is fitted to your stairs and a power pack (the drive unit) is fitted to the track. This is the unit that will travel along the track. Then the seat that most suits your needs is fitted to the power pack.”

Stairlift Operation
Stair lifts are operated with a switch or toggle, which immediately turns off when not being pressed. The toggle has been designed by Handicare to be easy to hold and removes the need for the hand to grasp the control.  Handicare stair lifts are battery powered, therefore can be used during a power outage.

Swivel Away Seat
The stairlift seat swivels away from the stairs at the top, while the footrest remains in place. The swiveling movement allows the rider to place his or her feet safely on the top landing, allowing the rider to safely stand or transfer to a wheelchair or scooter. Stair and wheelchair lifts give you independence in your home, and make going up and down stairs safe and easy!

Perch Seat Stair Lift
A perch stair lift enables the passenger to stand up while writing the stair lift. The perch seat option is available from Handicare on the Sterling 1000 straight stair lift system, also on the Sterling 2000, a curved stairlift system.
