A stair lift may seem like the obvious choice when the need arises, through older age or disability, but it is definitely not the most stylish, safe or practical way of travelling around your home.

Traditional stair lifts fulfill the need to transport oneself up and down the stairs, but they come with many drawbacks.

The Stiltz Wheelchair Lift alleviates most of the negatives of a stair lift, so that the user can feel like the device is a sleek addition to their home, rather than a compromise.

The most obvious difference is visual: The Stiltz Wheelchair Lift looks good and it complements your home. It can be customized with color and design features to suit you. It can be hidden behind a curtain or in a cupboard and does not impinge on anyone else going up or down the stairs.

Practically this type of lift, manufactured by Stiltz Wheelchair Elevators in Pennsylvania but sold nationwide, allows the user to simply enter the lift independently without any inconvenience. There’s no getting in and out of their wheelchair into the stair lift, no belts or straps for safety and no embarrassment. The user retains their independence around their own home.

A Stiltz Wheelchair Lift is quick — considerably faster than traditional stair lifts. Travel between floors can take as little as 30 seconds, whereas a stair lift typically takes longer than a minute, particularly if it is a turning staircase.

Unlike a traditional stair lift, the Stiltz Wheelchair Lift is far more reliable, as it comes with an emergency back-up battery so you are not left trapped half way up or down the stairs during a power outage. It is far less prone to breakdowns, so you won’t find yourself confined to one floor until the problem is fixed.

The Stiltz lifts can also be plugged straight into a standard AC power wall socket, so unlike a stair lift there will never be any concerns over battery life or battery replacement.
