Lifts, Patient Transfer, Stairway

Definition : Patient transfer lifts designed to carry people along a staircase; they typically consist of a permanently mounted track attached to the wall that runs along the stairway and supports a rigid chair. These lifts include the following: a wall track usually made of aluminum, a mounting system that attaches the track to the wall (sometimes free standing on specially designed supports), an electric motor or hydraulic mechanism, a seat, and a control box for lift movement regulation. Some models fold against the wall leaving the stairway clear for pedestrian use. Stairway lifts are usually installed in existing stairways with minimum modifications; they are mostly used at home, but may be installed in public-use facilities such as schools, libraries, or hospitals.
