How safe are stairlifts? How can I make sure the person using it won’t be injured?Add Answer
Stairlifts are safe. In fact, you won’t have a difficult time finding the best ones that are equipped with seatbelts, foot sensors, and other safety features. A high-quality stairlift has sensors that will stop the lift when it detects something in its path. The person using the stairlift is kept safe by the harness. If you have concerns about the speed of the stairlift, you can rest assured that stairlifts are made with the safety of people with disabilities and the elderly in mind. There is very minimal risk of accidents or injuries related to lifting speed because stairlifts are designed to move slowly and steadily.
