Modern rail layouts to fit your lifestyle, leaving lots of room for individuals to walk the stairs up and down easily, and smoothly can help the stairlift journey around corners closely, comfortably.

2) How are you supposed to run power to a stair lift?

Electric power (AC) stairlifts need a grounded regular 110v/20 amp wall socket found at or near the bottom or top of the stairs. Plug in the DC powered stairlift to recharge the battery when it is not used. There are additionally DC powered units that enable the batteries to be constantly charged by the AC electricity while the stairlift uses the DC power from the batteries. The battery operated stairlift will continue to run until it runs out of power if there's a power outage. The DC stairlift WOn't run, if the transformer burns out and you have to get the charger serviced.

3) How fast do stairlifts go?

Typically the speed ranges from 13.78 feet per minute to 29.53 feet per minute with the speed varying with the rider's weight, all within the recommended industry standard. The most rate in the usa is 40 feet per minute. Units can come with an emergency brake safety feature in case you feel out of control descending. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers manages the standards for stairway chair lifts for matters of public safety, including speed under ASME A18.1.. Some makers provide a varying speed of 0 to 38 feet per minute.

4) Are there any structural modifications needed before installing a lift?

No. Since stairlifts don't attach to the wall, there are no modifications that are needed. The stairlift is installed into existing stair treads. The one thing that we do recommend is that if you're intending to modify the flooring or carpeting on your stairs in the following five years, you might want to plan to do it before you install your stairlift to avoid future removal and re-installation prices.

5) Does health insurance cover equipment cost and installation of a lift?

Because they are dwelling alterations, not durable medical equipment, Medicare does not cover stairlift equipment and setup prices. Durable medical equipment comprises elevators which are used to help a patient in out of a chair or bed. In Tennessee, individuals with limited financial resources might qualify for the Tennessee Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Option. It empowers people who supports independent living and need nursing home level care to receive that care at home, including coverage for home modifications. Family could be compensated for supplying caregiving help. As stated by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), some private health insurance providers may offer financial assistance for some home modifications in the event the lift is considered a medical necessity. It is best to review different insurance policies. Some private health or long-term care insurance may help pay for small house modifications. Check with your Johnson City insurance insurance company to review coverage choices.

6) How much do they weigh?

The units are heavy, which is among the reasons we do not recommend attempting to install them yourself. The lightest units on the market weigh 165-180 pounds installed (seat and track). Some units weight over 250 pounds installed. Chair assemblies and tracks come in various sizes and shapes and are made of different types of substances depending on the model and its finest attributes.

7) About how long does it take to fully install one of these lifts in my Johnson City home?

A fitting can take between 1-2 hours for straight stairs. A Tennessee professional will install the rail first, followed by the seat and the motor. Proper setup includes once it is been examined following the fitting, walking you through the features of your new stairlift. A fitting for a curved stairlift can take as much as a half day.

8) Can the track be shortened?

Yes. The tracks can be corrected and also the length may be reduced. Nonetheless, using the right personal protective equipment is highly advised. Some makers of stairlifts supply do it yourself cutting instructions. Here's the catch. The track determines how nicely the stairlift will run. Making certain that you get the span of the stairs to correspond together with the course length is highly critical. Without appropriate measurements, you might discover that the installment leads to more difficulties rather than relying on professional installers with experience. Should the courses cut wrong, you might have trouble returning them depending on the return policy. Most makers will merely accept returns if the path has not been cut, because the cut of the course is custom designed. We highly advise that you cut the path yourself or do not install your own stairlift. It is not so safe. An incorrect shortening of the path or the wrong length of trail can not prove to be very safe, particularly when the track is too short. In case the individual who desires the stairlift steps off of the seat short of the ground floor or on top of the stairway, they can injure themselves. It's very important that the chair and the tracks work just. Accredited installers worry and will save you from a lot of head aches and potential prevent injuries that are terrible.

The total value of your home won't depreciate. If you're planning on selling your home, realtors used to advocate that a stairlift be removed prior to placing your house available on the market, however given increased life expectancy, this isn't any longer the case. You transfer or may even completely remove the stairlift with no signs of installation when you want or need it.

10) Can you apply for one of these lifts if you are on disability?

Someone qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they've worked in a job that was insured by Social Security and have a health condition which meets their definition of impairment. In the event you are on disability or injured, benefits might be insured. Since SSI is a needs-based program and an SSI recipient must have limited income and resources, eligibility for the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows a person who has a disability to achieve an occupational objective. The cash that is set aside under a PASS could be used for anything that leads to an occupational objective and may be utilized to cover home adjustments through an SSI savings plan. You will learn more about PASS through your Tennessee Social Security Administration office or call toll free 800 772 1213.

Some stairlifts come with mounted call/send controls on the wall near the tracks for a user or you can definitely make use of a remote control to send the chair where you would like it to go. Occasionally the control panel is located on the seat arm. Become familiar with the particular features of your unit.
