installing a vertical lift
rearranging your house so that you can live on one floor

Lifts for curved stairs
Obviously, this is the type of lift you’d need if your stairs are actually curved. But note that best stairlift Gnosall call any kind of lift that goes round a corner a stair lift for curved stairs’.
Lifts for use outdoors
Outdoor stairlifts are similar to indoor models but tougher and waterproof, so they can be used to get you into the garden or up your front steps.
Lifts with seats
Carrying a walking stick, handbag or other small items would be no problem since this type of stairlift comes with a reasonable seat size.
If you are having problems with sitting or not being able to stand easily, then Standing lifts are the best stairlifts for you as they comes with a platform that you can stand or “perch” on. They can be fitted on narrower stairs and also are narrower than seat chairlifts.
To be able to use Standing Chair Lifts, you should be able to stand for the duration for which it takes the lift to climb the stairs. If you sometimes get dizzy or collapse, then this lift is not suitable for you. The headroom of the stairway has to be high enough – as a rule of thumb, your height when standing plus around 12″ (30cm).
Lifts Capable of Passing a Door Way
In some houses, the stairlift will need to pass in front of a door – this often happens at the foot of the stairs. You can get around this by fitting a hinged track that lifts up out of the way when the stairlift is not being used. Check that it has some mechanism to make lifting it light work. Remember to raise it at night, so no one trips over it by mistake.
