Having trouble getting up and down stairs?
Here are some options...
A stairlift is a well-known way of staying independent in your home when you start to find that getting up the stairs is not as easy as it used to be. Attached to a rail that is fixed to your stairs, a stairlift can be installed within a matter of hours.
At Spring Chicken we have researched the market to help you decide whether a stairlift is right for you.
- Use alone if you can get on and off by yourself
- Can be installed in just a few hours
- Easy and comfortable to use.
- Virtually no re-sale value and can cost to get it removed
- On view in your home
A stair climber is a less well known solution to getting up and down stairs. It is a portable ‘trolley’ fitted with rotating wheels so that it can be guided up or down stairs. The advantage of a stair climber is that you can take it with you wherever you go in the knowledge you’ll be able to get up just about any stairs.

- No installation required

- Can be used with a wheelchair
