Frequently Asked Questions

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

Yes. Recycled and reconditioned stairlifts are an alternative and are available. Custom designed curved stairlifts are less easy to resell, as the angles around the curves really have to be a very close match. Otherwise, a recycled stairlift isn't inherently bad only because it is used and offers plenty of edges. Many Texas stairlift firms resell them used and buy stairlifts back. A stairlift that was used resold and may have been removed, because the individual who depended on the lift improved in their own state, they moved, or the demand for it was temporary. They cost significantly less than new models. Be sure you ask some questions when buying a lift that is used. Ask about their weight as well as the prior owner /height demands. Ask about the age of the used model. We recommend that you do not buy one that is 10 years old, because that version is close to retirement. Ask questions that are mechanical about the status of the battery, the working condition of the tracks, the lift, and its motor. You can shorten the span of tracks if required as stated before. Nonetheless, be sure to adhere to quite a measured strategy for cutting tracks, because a mistake will cost you.

2) How are they powered?

You can conserve energy by turning it off with the remote also, when you are not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery powered (D/C) and electrical (A/C) versions. One factor is whether you reside in an area that experiences lots of power outages, since you don't need to be stranded mid-elevator during a thunderstorm. (Yet, ask the manufacturer about the backup power system which should be contained in your version.) Also, consider the price of replacing the battery and the life of the battery. Generally, depending on the brand, it costs $30-$160 to replace the battery or batteries . While some prefer electrical versions for reasons that range from battery life to some device difficulties unique to battery versions, others prefer battery powered stairlifts, because they can result in lower electric bills, although the expense of the electricity to control the stairlift has been considered negligible by most producers. You really do not need to plug after every use in a battery charger, since the battery model has a wall plug to keep the battery charged. Another thing to think about is the way mechanically inclined the user is, because the seat and housing on some models must be removed and cables have to be disconnected and reconnected to insert the brand new battery. Request instructions and see if it's something that you will want to replace yourself. We'd be pleased to assist you. In case you decide on an electrical model, make certain there is a plug within a couple of feet of the elevator. No particular outlets are necessary. Ask the way to change the back up fuse on an electrical stairlift.

3) Does health insurance cover equipment cost and installation of a lift?

Medicare does not cover stairlift equipment and installation prices, because they're dwelling modifications, not durable medical equipment. Durable medical equipment includes lifts which are accustomed to help a patient in out of a chair or bed. In Texas, individuals with limited financial resources may qualify for the Texas Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Alternative. It empowers individuals who need nursing home level care to receive that attention at home and supports independent living, including coverage for home alterations. Family members may be compensated for providing caregiving help. As stated by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), some private health insurance providers may offer financial assistance for some home modifications in the event the lift is recognized as a medical necessity. It is better to review different insurance policies. Some private health or long-term care insurance may help pay for home adjustments that are small. Check with your Austin insurance carrier to examine policy options.

4) Can you apply for one of these lifts if you are on disability?

Someone have a medical condition that meets their definition of handicap and qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they have worked in work that was covered by Social Security. In case you are on disability or injured, benefits might be covered. Since SSI is a needs-based plan and an SSI recipient must have limited income and resources, eligibility for the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows a person who has a disability to attain an occupational goal. The money that's set aside under a PASS may be used for anything that contributes to an occupational objective and can be used to cover home modifications via an SSI savings plan. You will learn more about PASS through your Texas Social Security Administration office or call toll free 800-772-1213.

5) Is there any permanent damage when installing one of these lifts?

No. One of the rationales that the stairlifts are attached to the stairs is to protect your Austin home from damage related to setup. The few screws can be handled by the treads of the stairs. The holes are simple to cover. The entire worth of your home will not depreciate. Realtors used to urge that a stairlift be removed prior to putting your house in the marketplace, however given increased life expectancy if you're planning on selling your home, this is no longer the case. You may also entirely remove the stairlift with no signs of setup when you need or no longer want it or move.

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

No. There are not any modifications that are necessary since stairlifts don't attach to the wall. The stairlift is installed into existing stair treads. The only thing that we do recommend is that if you are planning to modify the flooring or carpeting in your stairs in the following five years, you may want to plan to do it before you install your stairlift to avoid future removal and re installation costs.

7) Why are they so expensive to install?

Above all, they help you every step of the way and include regular care. Open up any of the installation guides and also you'll see a warning any limited guarantee will be voided by any deviation and that strict adherence to the setup instructions is required and eliminate any opportunity you have of holding the maker liable for any damage or liability. Professional setup is a lot more efficient in the long-run when it comes to warranty, service and long-term care since they experienced at setup and are trained to follow safety measures. The installer is getting paid to properly install your unit so you do not face serious dangers that do result when an inexperienced individual opens the manual for the first time and installs a stairlift. A Austin professional also knows how to ensure that the stairlift follows fire exit demands, the way to make sure the charger connections are working correctly to prevent serious injuries, and assure that all the proper operating attributes are enabled. The price you pay to truly have a trustworthy and trained tech ensures the longevity of your purchase and your security. Repairs and re-installations can take longer and cost more than a suitable initial setup. Additionally, setup includes lifting a good amount of weight. Many setups could be completed in a few hours by a professional.

8) How much does a good stair lift cost?

The price averages around $3,500 to over $10,000 for a great stairlift. Rental and aid programs are accessible. $6,000 and for a custom curved railing staircase prices are around $10,000. to for a straight flight of stairs look to spend between $2,500 Some products are sold as complete packages including a warranty plus installation, while others don't contain installment in the price. The shape of the stairwell, the length of the seat fashion, the course, work, and the attributes you want determine the price.

9) Does AETNA cover the cost of these lifts?

No. Aetna bases this determination on whether several standards are satisfied. The Aetna member must be: (1) incapable of standing up from a regular armchair at home; (2) and must have severe arthritis of the hip or knee, or have acute neuromuscular disease; (3) and the seat lift mechanism should be prescribed to effect improvement, or arrest or retard deterioration in the member's state; (4) and once standing, the member must possess the capability to ambulate. Subsequently, Aetna would contemplate seat lift mechanisms medically necessary durable medical equipment (DME). Nevertheless, Aetna does not cover stairlifts because they're considered dwelling changes. As described in the question that handles Medicare coverage of these medical devices, they basically follow the rules for aerodynamic lift mechanisms of Medicare.

10) Can these be used on carpeted floors?

Elevators can be set up on all kinds of flooring (carpet, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairs). In fact, most professionally installed stairlifts cost between $500 and $1,000 for the labour given a variety of factors based on the problem of the occupation. Installers can screw right through the carpeting. Because the aluminum chips are really hard to remove from the carpeting, the courses do not cut inside the house. One thing that specialists mention is that if your carpet is likely to need replacing in the next 5 years, you may want to replace it before you've a stairlift installed. Otherwise, you'll have to factor in the price of uninstalling and re-installing the stairlift.

11) How fast do stairlifts go?

Generally 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 speed in the usa is 40 feet per minute. Units can include an emergency brake safety feature in the event you feel out of control descending. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers manages 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.

12) How do stair lifts work?

Essentially, it is like riding in your own ski lift, minus the bitter cold. You sit in a motorized swivel chair snugly equipped to make you as comfortable as possible with personalized attributes. A safety belt keeps you securely in place and a foot rest prevents you from hitting on the steps while using the lift. Some stairlifts call/send controls on the wall near the paths for a user or a remote control can be used by you to send the seat in which you would like it to go. Sometimes the control panel is situated on the seat arm. Become familiar with the particular features of your unit. Once you are prepared, depending on the version you purchased or rented, you can control the speed and adjust the seat as you travel up and down your staircase. The lift consists of a a passenger car a motor, the control system, and your comfortable seat in order you could once again regain your mobility. Some models rely on a belt like a conveyor belt and a rack and pinion system is used by other versions.
