Installing a home lift can benefit the seniors or disabled in many ways:
With the development of society, Home lifts began to be popularized in ordinary families. In the past, Home elevators were more like a luxury. Many families could not afford this cost. At present, the audience of household elevators is wider. In the past, household elevators that only the rich could afford were used by people in more industries.
As a means of transportation for family travel, the home elevator changes people’s dependence on stairs and has become an everyday lifestyle. Now residents are increasingly accepting of installing a home lift indoors, making their lives more comfortable and increasing the future value of the real estate.
The senior or the disabled at home benefit from installing a home lift. The home elevator shortens their travel time and distance. Initially, they may constantly live on a fixed floor. Now they can change floors at will, which improves their pride as family members and increases their self-confidence, Be able to participate in family activities more actively.
- Save the physical strength of the elderly: the elderly and people with mobility disabilities are subject to physical conditions, and their actions are not particularly flexible. For them, carrying heavy objects or cleaning their clothes will consume a lot of physical strength, especially when they enter a higher floor from the first floor, they have to bear the weight of objects on one hand and overcome the spacing between stairs, on the other hand, The emergence of home lifts has dramatically reduced their working time and alleviated their fatigue.
- Reduce the occurrence of accidents: the disabled or the elderly themselves have difficulty moving, and they need the best care at home. When they are old, their bones may become fragile, and the elderly are not very sharp in legs and feet. They have to consume their physical strength every time they go up and down the stairs. If the stairs at home are set too steep, there are safety risks such as wrestling. Installing a household elevator can reduce their leg activities. If they fall from the stairs or fall while carrying daily items, it will aggravate their aging and increase the additional burden on the family.
Installing home lifts is a good choice for the elderly! It is a small household elevator. Although it is small compared with ordinary home elevators, its safety is not inadequate, even more, substantial than the commercial elevator. When the old man takes the bus, he doesn’t have to worry about what to do if there is a power failure because a UPS backup battery is installed in the elevator. If the old man really runs out of power, the elevator will use the backup battery to send the old man to the adjacent floor to ensure that the old man can leave safely. So you can rest assured to work in the office without worrying about the elderly falling down the stairs!
- It provides a quiet environment for the elderly:
Old people don’t like the lively atmosphere like young people. They like quiet. If ordinary home elevators are installed, ordinary home elevators, especially screw elevators, the noise they bring will disturb the daily rest of the old people and affect their physical condition for a long time. The hydraulic household elevator will not have these effects after installation. Its noise is almost zero, and it will not have too much vibration sound. Installing it is the best choice for the elderly!
