When you travel, you can use resources such as airports, travel agents, and hotels, to help you arrange for a wheelchair rental. However, if you are not flying to your destination and if you are staying with friends or family, you may have to spend more time looking for local resources and making arrangements yourself.
Considerations when buying or renting a Stair Glide
As the population ages, installing stair lifts is becoming more and more popular. From arthritis to balance impairments, several health issues can make it difficult in a home where there are stairs. The good news is that there is an easy solution… A stair lift is a perfect option for otherwise mobile people, but just need a boost to get up and down the stairs.
The stair glide is easy to install on a spiral or curved staircase and can be used both indoors and outdoors. When you purchase one of these devices, you no longer have to worry about calling for assistance. A stair glide is a motorized chair that moves on the side of your stairway. The chair is linked to and operates along a rail that is set up to move the entire distance of the stairway.
