Stair lifts and stair climbing aids

A stairlift is a mobile seat or platform that can carry a maximum of one person up or down a staircase.

These products are permanently installed on the existing stairs and move up and down the stairs with the help of a rail. In addition to a permanently installed seat, there is also a version with a platform so that wheelchair users can also use stairlifts. There are also stair climbers that are mobile.

Stairlifts usually have to be adapted individually to the spatial conditions. Furthermore, the seats are also equipped differently. For example, there are models with or without armrests, footrests or folding functions. For narrow stairs, a standing platform with handles can be used instead of a seat. The stairlift can be controlled by a lever control on the armrest or by remote control. In addition, many models have a call button at the respective end stops.

Stairlifts with platforms can only be used on wide stairs. The platform is secured by a railing, a folding barrier or an anti-roll bar. The operating unit is usually connected to the lift by a flexible cable.

Stairlifts are not included in the benefits payable by the statutory health insurance.
