Myths About Stairlifts

Whether it is a tactic to avoid admitting that a lift is needed, or maybe a case of misinformation, some people are missing out on a product that could greatly improve the quality of their life inside their home. Here are a couple of misconceptions about stairlifts.

However, this scenario is not a realistic problem. Modern stairlifts are designed to run on rechargeable battery power. When the power is on, your battery will be at full charge. If the power fails, the lift will continue to function for an average of 20 trips, depending on the model and length of lift.
- Stairlifts Won’t Work for Split Level Homes: The easiest setup for a stairlift is a straight line. However, lifts are made in sections and different sections can be used to accommodate almost any design. Information about stairlift services in Shrewsbury is available through an Internet search. Modern stairlifts can go around corners and can traverse levels. In some cases where there is a lot of distance between sets of stairs, a second lift can be installed.
