Different Types of Stairlifts Offered by A Mobility Shop

At A Mobility Shop, we offer a wide variety of stairlifts to meet the needs of our customers. From straight stairlifts to curved stairlifts, we have a stairlift that is perfect for your home and budget.

Straight Stairlifts

Straight stairlifts are the most common type of stairlift and are designed for stairs that have a straight run. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install. Straight stairlifts work by using a motor to power a chair up and down the stairs. The chair is attached to a rail that is mounted on the wall or stairs.

Straight stairlifts are a great option for people with limited mobility who have difficulty climbing stairs. They are also a good option for people who have a temporary injury or are recovering from surgery.

Curved Stairlifts

Curved stairlifts are more expensive than straight stairlifts, but they are necessary for stairs that have a curve. Curved stairlifts are custom-made to fit the exact shape of your staircase. This makes them more expensive to manufacture and install, but it also means that they are a perfect fit for your home.

Curved stairlifts work in the same way as straight stairlifts, but they use a more complex system to navigate the curves in your staircase. Curved stairlifts are a great option for people with limited mobility who have stairs that cannot be accommodated by a straight stairlift.

How to Choose the Right Stairlift

When choosing a stairlift, there are a few factors to consider:

  • Type of staircase: Do you have a straight staircase or a curved staircase?
  • Weight capacity: How much weight will the stairlift need to support?
  • Budget: How much money do you want to spend on a stairlift?
  • Features: Do you want a stairlift with additional features, such as a safety belt, a remote control, or a folding footrest?

We offer a free consultation to help you choose the right stairlift for your needs. Our experienced consultants will assess your home and lifestyle to help you find the best stairlift for your budget and needs.
