Stair Lifts

Stair lifts are often used in domestic and other small-scale applications, particularly where there is no room to install a lift shaft. The stair lift can share the same space as an existing staircase and usually just consists of a chair on a rail that goes up and down the stairs using a rack and pinion mechanism.

Popular brands of Stair Lifts include Bruno, Sannah and Savaria. You can find these brands at mobility stores such as Silver Cross Stair Lifts.
