Aging in Place Home Assessment for Stair Lift Selection

When considering the purchase of a stair lift, which is best, a curved or straight stair lift? Using an aging in place home assessment, the homeowner needs to determine which lift best matches the abilities of the user as well as the stairs upon which they are to be installed.

A straight stair lift is installed on straight, regular rise stair tracks that ascend from one floor to another in a straight line. The user must be able to get in and out of the chair.

A curved or custom built stair lift is one that ascends along irregularly patterned steps, or on a circular staircase. As with the straight lift, the user must be able to get situated safely in the seat of the lift.

A double installation straight stair lift is a series of lifts that travel up more elaborate staircases that have a landing between the levels. This installation feature requires the user to be able safely to transfer from the first to the second stair lift. While perhaps difficult to believe, this is typically a more economical choice than a curved or custom stair lift.
