3 Major Benefits of Installing Stair Lifts in Your Home or Business, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

For those with limited mobility, buildings or homes with multiple levels and no elevators can pose a safety hazard. Fortunately, stair lifts help eliminate these risks and make it easier for people of all capabilities to get around. Below, the team at Rapid Rehab LLC, a mobility assistance equipment provider in Wisconsin Rapids, WI, shares a few benefits of installing these ingenious devices in your home or business.

3 Benefits of Installing Stair Lifts

1. Freedom

It is not uncommon for people with reduced mobility to convert a room on the ground floor of their home or building into a bedroom or office. However, this can be expensive to accomplish, and they may feel ostracized or excluded from everyone else if they are unable to move about freely. With stair lifts, though, they will be able to access all of the property freely, regardless of any physical limitations. 

2. Safety

stair liftsApproximately 25% of Americans over the age of 65 suffer a slip-and-fall accident annually, and roughly 2.8 million of them must seek emergency medical care for the injuries they sustain. Although it is possible to slip and fall on virtually any surface, stairs are especially dangerous for individuals with limited mobility. Fortunately, by installing a lift in your home or business, you can effectively eliminate the risk of falling for those going up or down the steps—and reduce liability in the process.

3. Flexibility

For accident victims, stair lifts provide flexibility during the recovery process. Without this mobility option, even those with temporary injuries would have to consider significant changes to their day-to-day life, such as missing out on work or staying with a friend in a one-story home. With a stair lift, though, they will be able to continue their normal routine while they get better. And after recovery, they can either remove the lift or opt to keep it in the building or home should someone else need it in the future.
