As we get older our bodies begin to betray us. Joints begin to ache, you’re not quite as quick as you used to be and climbing up and down stairs can become an impossible task. Being unable to climb the stairs in your home can completely prevent you from being able to access nearly half of your own home! Here at Freedom Mobility, we’ve been helping Marylanders with wheelchair and stairlift rentals for years, and we wanted to take some time today to talk about how installing a stairlift can make your home safer.
1. Never Worry About a Fall Again
Not only can climbing your stairs be difficult, it can also be extremely dangerous. Unfortunately, over the years we’ve had many come into our showroom that learned this lesson the hard way, and only sought a stairlift after they had fallen. By having one of our MD wheelchair rental and stairlift installation experts install a stairlift in your home, you can rest easy knowing you’ll never have to worry about tumbling down the stairs.
2. Seatbelts Keep You Safe
We all know how seatbelts help to keep us safe in our vehicles, but they can also help to keep you safe in your home. Our stairlifts come with standard seatbelt safety features, ensuring you’re able to click in, and that you won’t be getting out of your chair until you unclick!
3. Safety Sensors Prevent Any Mishaps
When stairlifts first were invented, they lacked many of our modern-day safety features, and as a consequence were far more dangerous. Without a seatbelt, if you fell you could have been hurt by the chair, but now not only do stairlifts come with seatbelts, they also come with safety sensors. When the sensor detects an obstruction, it will stop the chair. This prevents the stairlift from accidentally running into and hurting someone.
4. A Lockable Key Switch
When not in use, your stairlift should be locked, otherwise an accident could happen, particularly if you have small children in the home. All of the stairlifts in our MD wheelchair and stairlift showroom come with a lockable on and off key switch, ensuring your chair is only in use when you want it to be.
