There are a number of suppliers of wheelchair stair lifts. National Wheel-O-Vator and Stannah Stairiser Wheelchair Stair Lift both make excellent versions for wheelchairs. Both companies products come with the following features: bi-directional safety platform sensors not only provide protection for the user but for others who might be using the stairs; safety barrier arms and access ramps are mechanically locked during travel; the platform can be accessed from both front and side - the side ramps rise to secure the wheelchair when the platform is in motion.
Ergonomically planned chairs are noticeably more costly than usual office chairs, but should be considered a business investment, as they promote productivity, which means greater income for the business.
Repair shops are around , however they're hard to find and usually cater to the insurance industry, are maker specific, or shade tree (to borrow a phrase from the auto industry). The later could develop into a much needed industry, if the training, tools, and parts were easier to obtain. The jest of this is the owner of a Power Chair, Mobility Scooter, or other mobility device is forced to return to the original seller of the item or attempt to fix it themselves. Usually the seller is hours to days away, and shipping, or a house visit has to be scheduled. This leaves the device owner in the lurch, untill an inspection of the problem can be made, and many times parts ordered. In the case of a house call, a second visit has to be scheduled.
Avoiding wheelchair theft could save virtually any hospital between $19,000 to $25,000 a year. Unfortunately, with so many in need of mobility assistance a place like a hospital annually reports hospital patient transportation theft. With well over 32 million disabled Americans, wheelchairs have become a national necessity; ramps, wide doorways, and hallways have become routine accommodations.
