However, vertical lifts do require more space than a stairlift and it is sometimes necessary to make structural alterations to the property.
As with all lifting products it is essential to have them fitted by a fully qualified engineer and have them regularly maintained.
Short Rise Lifts
These can be used indoors or outdoors where a change in level occurs, they are particularly useful for confined spaces where a ramp is not possible.
Wheelchair users are able to propel themselves directly onto the platform and move betweens levels without assistance, creating greater independence.
Some short rise lifts are able to carry both the wheelchair user and the carer. Some of these lifts may require some structural alterations prior to installation.
