Mobility is something that is often taken for granted; that is, until the need for using a wheelchair or walker makes it a challenge just to get around, let alone up and down stairs. Aging in place designs have anticipated such difficulties, making it easy to navigate through potentially difficult or impossible obstacles in your home. Which is the best mobility choice for your Atlanta metro home – an elevator or a wheelchair lift / vertical platform lift?
Elevators are enclosed rooms that conveniently transport individuals from floor to floor. When considering the purchase of an elevator for your Atlanta home, determine:
- The weight of the main user
- Enough space to install the elevator
- Accessibility to desired installation location
- Structural requirements
Wheelchair lifts (also known as a vertical platform lift) also carry the passenger, in the safety of his or her wheelchair, to the desired level or levels in the home. This powerful type of lift offers:
- Weight capacity of up to 750 pounds
- Multiple stops capability
- Backup power source in case of outages
- Easy to use control
Your choice of an elevator or an Atlanta wheelchair lift / vertical platform lift is dependent largely on your space and needs. Don’t stay limited. Get an in-home consultation to determine which might be the best mobility option to meet your needs!
