Stairlift Installation & Repair in Pittsburgh

Home Stairlifts

Residential homes can be difficult for those with mobility issues. One of the easiest and cost-effective solutions for those homes with extensive stairways is a stairlift. These simple-to-install devices provide a chair that an individual can use to move up a stairway. While these are the least invasive mobility solution, they do require an individual to sit in the stair lift, and thus may not be suitable for those who cannot leave their wheelchairs. These lifts come either battery powered or electrically wired, so there is no required re-wiring. With so many options, there is certainly a stairlift to meet your mobility needs.
