Step lifts truly are important pieces of kit, especially if you struggle with mobility and it is affecting your day to day life. Whether this is as a result of an injury that has left you wheelchair bound, general health conditions that affect mobility such as vertigo or old age, you could benefit from a steplift at home. They can be a great way of going about your everyday life as normal and can assist in tasks such as reaching the bathroom for a shower or accessing your bedroom to go to sleep.
If you feel like you could benefit from a step lift, great! We’re sure you will instantly see improvements and you’ll be able to regain your independence and perform everyday tasks with ease. But how do you go about installing one in your home? There are a number of things to consider, let’s highlight them together in this blog…
Picking the perfect spot
As you can probably imagine, step lifts are not tiny pieces of equipment that can be placed anywhere. Whether they are needed for outdoor or indoor use, you should always measure up your preferred space with the size of your lift of choice.
Here at Level Lifts, we offer plenty of options to choose from, so be sure to check their specifications and compare them with your own. In order to fit you on safely, the step lifts will need to be a certain size. By making sure you measure your required area accurately, you are met with no nasty surprises when it comes to installation.
Should I install a step lift myself?
Now that you’ve decided exactly where your platform lift will go, it is time to get to the nitty gritty of installation. Many people ask us if it is possible for them to install a steplift themselves. Or we get asked whether they can fit one with the help of a family member or friend that crucially isn’t a professional.
Our answer to this would always be to err on the side of caution. Installing a platform lift is a complex activity that needs to be done to a top quality standard. If any mistakes are made, it can prove disastrous later down the line for the safety of the user.
