Getting the Right Platform Lift for Your Wheelchair

Accessibility issues are a serious concern for homeowners. When one or more occupant utilizes a wheelchair to get around from day to day, it's important to consider some ways of making the home easier to navigate, especially when it comes to stairs.

Transitions Lift + Elevator understands how to help families modify their homes to accommodate wheelchair users. We have years of experience in helping people, and we know how to install wheelchair lifts safely and efficiently.

Home wheelchair lifts come in two main categories: vertical platform wheelchair lifts and inclined wheelchair stair lifts. While the inclined lifts work much the same way as "chair version" stair lifts do, the platform lifts move straight up and down.

Which one is right for you depends on the layout of your home. Some people benefit from having both. For example, you could install a vertical platform lift outside to help with access to second-story decks and porches, while using an inclined wheelchair lift to negotiate up and down the interior stairs to access second-floor bedrooms or basement laundry rooms.

As you can see, the right platform lift for your wheelchair depends on various circumstances. Do you have questions about wheelchair lifts? Call the trusted experts at Transitions, and we'll help you determine which lift is right for you. Then we can provide professional installation and service throughout the life of your lift.

It's just that simple. We look forward to speaking with you!
