There is a huge range of stairlifts, and they all have different control, options and weight limits to consider. However, there are only really 3 basic types: straight, curved and platform stairlifts for indoor or outdoor use.
Straight stairlifts: Straightforward and the easiest to use and install. Used for moving from lower to upper floors and back again. Possibly the most popular choice because of
simplicity of installation i.e. less than 1 hour, and because of price i.e. less
than £1,000 (in the case of reconditioned or re-engineered).
Curved stairlifts: Required to negotiate bends or landings. Also suitable for use on winding staircases over several floors. Usually take a
half a day to install and prices are
dependent on situation, but generally more expensive than straight stairlifts.
Perch stairlifts: A neat solution for anyone who cannot bend their knees or stand sufficiently well enough.
Through floor stairlifts: Often referred to as wheelchair stairlifts, can be the only solution for the totally immobile or wheelchair bound. These are designed to accommodate a wheelchair and it's occupant to travel vertically between floors, rather like a common public lift.
A stairlift can be customised to fit users requirements and to blend almost unnoticed into a domestic environment. As mentioned above there are many factors to be
considered when choosing a stairlift but possibly the most important is if the user requires a greater weight load.
Stairlifts can be folded discreetly away when not in use to permit normal access to the staircase for non lift users.
A stairlift, especially non standard stairlifts, could be a large investment to consider and therefore it is imperative you get the right advice first time before you buy.
