Frequently Asked Questions

1) How do stair lifts work?

Essentially, it's like riding in your ski lift, minus the bitter cold. You sit in a motorized swivel chair snugly equipped to make you as comfortable as possible with features that are personalized. A safety belt keeps you securely in place plus a foot rest prevents you from hitting on the steps while using the lift. Some stairlifts come with mounted call/send controls on the wall close to the paths for a user or you can utilize a remote control to send the chair in which you want it to go. Sometimes the control panel is located on the seat arm. Become familiar with the particular attributes of your unit. Once you are ready, depending on the version you rented or bought, you can control the speed and adjust the seat as you travel up and down your stairs. The lift consists of a a carriage, a motor, the control system, as well as your comfortable seat in order you could once again regain your freedom. Some versions rely on a belt like a conveyor belt and other versions utilize a rack and pinion system.

2) How much does a good stair lift cost?

The cost averages around $3,500 to over $10,000 for a great stairlift. that is Aid and rental systems are available. For a straight flight of stairs seem to spend between $2,500 to $6,000 and for a custom curved railing staircase prices are around $10,000. Some products are sold as complete packages including a warranty along with installation, while others don't contain installment in the price. The shape of the stairwell, the span of the seat style the course, work, and the characteristics you desire determine the cost.

3) Can a stair lift go around corners?

Yes. Although straight stairlifts are often not as expensive, curved stairlifts can be custom built to fit any staircase. Modern railing layouts to suit your lifestyle, leaving plenty of room for people to walk up and down the stairs easily, and smoothly can help the stairlift travel around corners closely, comfortably.

4) Does AETNA cover the cost of these lifts?

No. Aetna bases this decision on whether several criteria are met. The Aetna member must be: (1) incapable of standing up from a standard armchair at home; (2) and must have severe arthritis of the hip or knee, or have severe neuromuscular disorder; (3) and the seat lift mechanism should be prescribed to effect improvement, or arrest or retard deterioration in the member's condition; (4) and once standing, the member has to have the capacity to ambulate. Subsequently, Aetna would consider seat lift mechanisms medically necessary durable medical equipment (DME). Yet, Aetna will not insure stairlifts because they're considered residence modifications. As described in the question that handles Medicare coverage of these medical devices, they essentially follow the rules for lift mechanisms of Medicare.

5) How much do electric stair lifts cost in Wichita?

Used electric-powered stairlifts can start at about $1,299.00, while battery-powered stairlifts can start at about $1,399.00 in Kansas. Both versions are priced when you purchase them new. The cost difference is insignificant initially. In the long term, electric-powered stairlifts may cost you less, if you factor in the amount of maintenance and replacement batteries. Often, although there are batteries that are pretty simple to install depending on the model it is strongly recommended to possess the battery rather than attempt to replace it yourself.

6) How are you supposed to run power to a stair lift?

Electric-power (AC) stairlifts necessitate a grounded conventional 110v/20 amp outlet located at or close to the bottom or top of the staircase. Direct current, or battery powered (DC) stairlifts use batteries capable of being recharged. Plug in the DC powered stairlift when it's not used to recharge the battery. There are also DC powered units that empower the batteries to continuously charge while the stairlift uses the DC power from the batteries. The charger unit will convert the voltage to DC. The battery operated stairlift will continue to run until it runs out of power if there is a power outage. In case the transformer burns out, the DC stairlift is not going to run and you need to get the charger serviced.

7) How fast do stairlifts go?

Usually the speed ranges from 13.78 feet per minute to 29.53 feet per minute with the speed varying with the rider's weight, all within the recommended industry standard. The most rate in the usa is 40 feet per minute. Units can include an emergency brake safety feature in case you feel out of control descending. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers oversees the standards for stairs chair lifts for issues of public safety, including speed under ASME A18.1.. Some makers provide a varying speed of 0 to 38 feet per minute.

8) Does AARP cover the cost of these lifts?

AARP isn't a supplier of insurance, but contracts with insurers to make coverage available to AARP members. AARP will not make health plan recommendations for individuals and doesn't cover the price of stairlifts or any health needs. AARP does provide coverage like other health plans and Medicare Supplement Insurance and accessibility to health care tools to members as a resource, but third parties provide member benefits. Check with the plans that are recorded under AARP's membership services.

9) What types of financing are available if insurance doesn't cover home modifications?

Depending on your medical condition, there are some programs which help make the home modification cheaper. 1. Government grants that are available for home alterations are listed by the Fall Prevention Center of Excellence. Those comprise: (a) the Assistive Technology Funding and Systems Change Project United Cerebral Palsy Associations (UCPA) at 800-872-5827-UCPA ; (b) the Department of Veteran Affairs at (800) 827-1000 ; and (c) the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) (800) 829-1040. 2. Contact the National Council on Independent Living Center (703) 525-3406 on the best way to get funding and referral services in your town. 3. You can also contact the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) which is part of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to make an application for financing to pay for your stairlift through a mortgage insurance plan. Call (202) 708-1112. 4. It might reassure you to know that if your insurance doesn't cover the price, several of the stairlift makers have partnered with banks to provide financing alternatives, including monthly payment options and loans. 5. There are alternatives to consider. The Internal Revenue Service may determine your house alteration qualifies for tax deductions. Phone the Internal Revenue Service to determine if you can deduct the cost of installing your stairlift. IRS Publication 502 is a good resource that will assist you to estimate whether modifying your stairs qualifies you to deduct it as a medical expense. You can also phone them at (800) 829-1040. 6. Some Area Agency of Aging use resources from the Older Americans Act Title III to change homes, should you qualify. You can call them toll free at 877-866-2476 or visit

10) Are there any good options for used or recycled lifts in my area?

Yes. Stairlifts that are recycled and reconditioned are accessible and are an alternative. Custom-designed curved stairlifts are harder to resell, because the angles around the curves really have to be an extremely close match. A recycled stairlift isn't inherently bad only because it is used and offers a lot of advantages. Many Kansas stairlift companies resell them used and buy stairlifts back. A stairlift that was used resold and may have been removed, because the person who depended on the raise improved in their state, they went, or the demand for it was temporary. They cost considerably less than new versions. Be sure to ask some questions when purchasing a lift that is secondhand. Ask about their weight as well as the prior owner /height demands. Ask about the age of the used model. We advise that you really do not purchase because that version is close to retirement, one that is 10 years old. Ask mechanical questions regarding the status of the battery, the working shape of its own motor, the tracks, and the raise. You can shorten the span of tracks if necessary as mentioned before.

11) Are there any structural modifications needed before installing a lift?

No. Since stairlifts do not attach to the wall, there are not any adjustments which are required. The stairlift is installed into existing stair treads. The one thing that we do advocate is that if you are intending to change the flooring or carpeting on your stairs in the following five years, you may want to intend to do it before you install your stairlift to avoid future removal and re installation prices.

12) How are they powered?

When you are not using the stairlift, you can conserve energy by turning it away with the remote also. Stairlifts come in both battery powered (D/C) and electric (A/C) models. One factor is whether you reside in a region that experiences a great deal of power outages, as you do not want to be stranded mid-elevator during a storm. (Nevertheless, ask the manufacturer about the backup power system which should be contained in your model.) Also, consider the cost of replacing the battery as well as the life of the battery. While some prefer electric versions for reasons that range from battery life to some device difficulties unique to battery models, others prefer battery powered stairlifts, since they can result in lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to use the stairlift has been considered insignificant by the majority of makers. You don't have to plug after every use in a battery charger, because the battery model has a wall plug to keep the battery charged. Another thing to think about is how mechanically inclined the user is, wires have to be disconnected and reconnected to insert the new battery and because housing and the seat on some versions have to be removed. Sometimes, this becomes a service call to an installer to make life simpler. Ask for directions and see whether it's something that youwill wish to replace yourself. We'd be happy to help you out. Make sure there is a plug within a couple of feet of the lift in case you decide on an electric version. No special outlets are needed.
