As one of the most useful inventions stairlifts in Horwich can change your life. Whether the problem is linked to aging or a disability climbing stairs can be very difficult. There is an easy solution which you can operate yourself. The increase in independence is invaluable. You no longer have to rely on someone to carry or help you up and down the stairs. The stairlift has been commercially available since the 1930’s but some historians have suggested that Henry VIII had a version of the stairlift in his later life. The model best suited for you depends firstly on the stairway itself. There are straight stairs and curved stairs and the lift must fit the stairs. The rails are made from steel or aluminium and are normally secured to the steps but in the case of a platform type stairlift the rail can be fitted to the walls.
When you struggle to climb to the upper floor in your home in Horwich, stairlifts can allow you to be more independent. The unit is usually shaped like a chair with arms and a footrest to allow a comfortable ride. The seats can be made to suit individual needs or modified for a more comfortable ride. They normally have a swivel attachment to allow you to turn the chair at the landing. This is because most stairlifts travel with the backrest at right angles to the steps. The swivel seat can be manual or powered depending on the ability of the person using it. The chair will not normally move unless the swivel mechanism is locked in place.
