There are several different kinds of stairlifts available on the market; below, we outline some of the various types and hopefully allow you to make an informed decision in regards to which is best suited to you.
Seated stairlifts are certainly the most in-demand kind of stairlift, permitting the user to sit on a comfy seat that swivels when it reaches the top of the stairs, making it easier to go from a sitting to standing position.
Vertical stairlifts go from one floor of a property to another, travelling through a hole in the ceiling or the floor. The track of a vertical stairlift is linked to the wall. A vertical stairlift is often installed in cases where the staircase is not suitable for a standard stairlift; an example of this is if it’s too narrow.
Curved stairlifts are able to go around bends on the staircase and glide across landings or half-landings. This type of stairlift runs on a rail that is fitted close to the wall, on tight bends. More often than not, curved stairlifts run from rechargeable batteries which are frequently topped up from charging points located at both ends of the stairs.
