Facts About The Handicap Chair Lift

By Febbe Wallace

The primary purpose for the development of wheelchairs is to help people with physical incapability since birth or due to accident. Even since the time of Ancient Egypt, a kind of wheel chair was already invented to transport people who can’t travel alone. In more recent years numerous designs and scientific breakthroughs have sprung. One of these is the handicap chair lift.

First of all, get to know the handicap chair lift. The lift includes an actuator, a motor, and of course a sturdy structure that could last for a long time if taken care of properly, in good condition, and with good quality. A handicap chair lift often comes with a back up battery in case there is no electricity power.

The handicap chair lift is not only for those who are wheel chair bound, but is actually for anyone who suffers any kind of physical disability. For example, individuals with chronic back problems, osteoporosis, and hip problems can benefit from the handicap chair lift. The handicap chair lift is basically for anyone who has difficulty or experiences pain getting off his or her chair. This device therefore caters mainly to the elderly and/or severely ill.

The handicap chair lift makes it so much easier for wheelchair bound people to go to bed without the need to exert too much effort or help from others. There are many more advantages of using the handicap chair lift, which will be further discussed in this article.

Slipping off the chair easily and with less discomfort is a major function of the handicap chair lift. Another function is to enable the individual to reach certain areas in the house. For instance, cleaning windows or trying to reach a book on a tall bookshelf could be an unpleasant task for able people, much more for individuals who are already struggling physically to walk or move. The handicap chair lift can actually elevate so that the person can experience more comfort and convenience. Most chairs that work this way are airlifted.

Your height should be taken into account when shopping for a handicap chair lift. Your height will determine just how much elevation is needed from a handicap lift. You will therefore also need to discover what you always do at home that needs you to have a handicap chair lift. Ask yourself if you do lots of house cleaning, if you often have trouble reaching light switches or if you use your kitchen a lot (standard-sized ranges can be very difficult to use for wheelchair bound individuals).

Next, find out how much you weigh, as there are handicap chair lifts that may or may not have the capacity to carry a certain amount of weight. Most chair lifts can carry more than 300 pounds.

Finally, find out if you need extra features for your handicap chair lift, as there are now chair lifts that have massage and heating functions. These can be extremely useful for those with severe back and muscle aches.

Handicap chair lift is just one of the many kinds of wheelchair lift out there. Read more articles to get you familiar with other chair lifts such as the vertical wheelchair lift.
