Many seniors find climbing stairs a challenge, which can lead to serious injury and loss of independence. Stairlifts help older people safely move between floors in their homes without needing a caregiver to assist them with the process. They can be installed indoors or outdoors, and they can be used for a single staircase or multiple flights of stairs. They are simple to install and can provide a life-changing solution for anyone who struggles with the stairs in their home.
Stair lifts come in a range of different models to meet the needs of all individuals. They can be used on both straight and curved stairs and can have extra features such as swivel seats to make getting on and off much easier. They can also include safety sensors and powered foot plates to stop the chair if it moves off the track.
Straight stairlifts are usually the most affordable and can be fitted to most staircases. They typically feature a padded seat and backrest and a seat belt. They can also be upgraded with a power swivel feature to automatically rotate the chair at the top of the stairs when you get off, helping you to safely exit.
Bruno stairlifts are made to be reliable, comfortable and easy to use, which is why they are a popular choice for homeowners with straight staircases. They have a narrow vertical rail design that takes up less space than other brands’ designs and is easy to customize to fit your staircase.
They are available in a range of colors to match your décor and are built to be durable and long-lasting. They can also be customized to accommodate your specific needs with extra options such as a retractable rail to allow it to be tucked away when not in use to prevent tripping hazards. You can even add a hinged track to your straight stairlift if you have a curved landing between two stairs, which will enable you to climb over the staircase rather than having to switch to a bridging platform (although this is only recommended if your health condition allows it).
A key benefit of a straight stairlift is that it can be easily removed from the track when it is not being used, allowing you to free up space in your home. The rail can then be reattached to the stairs and used again when needed. Straight stair lifts are also easy to install, with the entire process typically taking no more than two or three hours.
