Stair glides are a type of mobility devices that can make a big difference in the lives of people with mobility issues, particularly those who find it difficult to climb stairs. These devices can be installed in homes to help people get up and down the stairs with ease, allowing them to move freely throughout their home without having to worry about falling or injuring themselves.
Lift Chairs are an incredible invention that can enormously improve quality of life! This form of equipment is also known as medical recliner chairs, electric lift chairs, or power lift chairs. Lift chairs tilt forwards to make standing from a seated position easier. They also reduce the risk of strains and injuries.
Stairways and elevated floors are major challenges for many individuals, seniors and those recovering from an injury. Today, more than 1/3 of the population above the age of 75, has some form of mobility restriction. For many the stairs has become a handicap. Platform lifts are a good option for them, being designed to raise the consumer and their wheelchair, scooter or power chair to the desired level. These lifts are durable and ensure easy accessibility both indoors and outdoors. They help to overcome barriers such as stairs and give easier access to the home.
