Consider its safety before buy – When we decided to apply a handicap stair lift for easy access for family members who have special needs, then there are some things that we must consider in order to get the right handicap stair. If we choose the wrong, then we will not give a comfortable feeling for users and most likely we can make users at risk of getting a greater danger when using it.
(1) Consider the level of disability of a person – whether a family member with special needs are able to lift himself out of the wheelchair and moved himself to stair lifts or whether they could not do it without the help of others, or whether they can stand without putting weight on the foot so do not give them additional health problems. By considering some of these things, then we can choose the right type of stair lifts for family members with special needs. If they were independent, then it is better to choose other items such as elevators instead of stairs because the elevator lift will facilitate access for those who use the stair lift rather than independent.
(2) Consider whether a family member with special needs are able to hold the button in some time. As we know, a lot of stair lift that requires the user to press a button and then the system will send the user to climb or descend stairs. If the user is not able to perform simple functions, then we need to find other alternatives so that they can easily run these devices.
(3) Consider whether a family member with special needs such has no control over the upper part of their body or not. As we all know, anyone who wants to use the stair lift should have control over the upper body so as to accelerate their current trip up or down the stairs. If they do not have control over the upper body, then certainly it would be dangerous for their safety and security. Risk of falling, slipping, until shifting can occur.
(4) Makes sure we get a handicap stair lift that equipped with a safety belt system so that users can be safe and secure his safety while doing the process up or down the stairs. Check before buying and make sure the item is in the products we choose. Also, do not forget to make sure stair lifts in excellent condition and able to work well.
