Frequently Asked Questions

1) How fast do stairlifts go?

Normally 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 rate in the US is 40 feet per minute. Units can have an emergency brake safety feature in the event you feel out of control descending. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers oversees the standards for stairway chair lifts for issues of public safety, including speed under ASME A18.1.. Some manufacturers provide a variable speed of 0 to 38 feet per minute.

2) How do stair lifts work?

Basically, it's like riding in your ski lift, minus the bitter cold. You sit in a motorized swivel chair snugly equipped to make you as comfortable as possible with characteristics that are personalized. A safety belt keeps you securely in place and also a foot rest prevents you from hitting the steps while utilizing the lift. Some stairlifts come with mounted call/send controls on the wall close to the tracks for a user or you can use a remote control to send the chair where you want it to go. Sometimes the control panel can be found on the seat arm. Become acquainted with the particular attributes of your unit. Once you're ready, depending on the version you purchased or rented, as you travel up and down your staircase, you can control the speed and adjust the seat. The lift consists of a a passenger car a motor, the control system, as well as your comfortable seat in order you can once more regain your freedom. Some versions rely on a belt like a conveyor belt and a rack and pinion system is used by other versions.

3) Does the VA cover the cost and installation of lifts?

According to AARP, The Department of Veterans Affairs offers a couple of grants to qualified veterans with disabilities for safety improvements in the home. Upon qualification, a veteran can receive both a HISA grant and either a SAH or SHA grant. Contact the VA and ask for VA form 10-0103 to make an application for the HISA grant. Contact the form 26-4555 to submit an application for SHA or SAH grant. For advice on all advantages telephone 1-800-827-1000.

4) How are they powered?

You can conserve energy by turning it off with the remote also, when you're not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery-powered (D/C) and electric (A/C) versions. One consideration is whether you reside in a region that experiences a lot of power outages, because you do not want to be stranded mid-lift during a storm. (Nonetheless, ask the manufacturer about the backup power system that should be included in your version.) Also, consider the cost of replacing the battery and the life of the battery. Generally, determined by the brand, it costs $30-$160 to replace the battery or batteries . While some favor electrical models for reasons ranging from battery life to some apparatus difficulties unique to battery versions, others prefer battery powered stairlifts, because they are able to lead to lower electric bills, although the expense of the electricity to operate the stairlift has been considered insignificant by the majority of manufacturers. Since the battery version has a wall plug to maintain the battery charged you don't have to plug in a battery charger after every use. Another thing to think about is the way inclined the user is, cables have to be disconnected and reconnected to add the newest battery and because the seat and casing on some versions must be removed. Request instructions and see if it is something that you'll wish to replace yourself. We'd be very happy to help you out. Make certain there is a spark plug within a couple of feet of the elevator if you choose an electric model. No specific outlets are essential.

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

A person qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they have worked in work that was covered by Social Security and have a medical condition that meets their definition of impairment. Benefits might be covered if you're on handicap or injured. Since SSI is a needs-based program and an SSI recipient must have limited income and resources, qualifications for the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows a person who has a disability to achieve an occupational objective. The cash that's set aside under a PASS could be used for anything that leads to an occupational objective and may be used to cover home modifications through an SSI savings plan. It's possible for you to find out more about PASS through your Illinois Social Security Administration office or call toll free 800 772 1213.

6) How are you supposed to run power to a stair lift?

Electric-power (AC) stairlifts need a grounded normal 110v/20 amp outlet found at or close to the bottom or top of the stairs. Direct current, or battery powered (DC) stairlifts use batteries capable of being recharged. Plug in the DC powered stairlift to recharge the battery when it's not used. There are also DC powered units that enable the batteries to continuously charge while the stairlift uses the DC power from the batteries. The battery operated stairlift will continue to run until it runs out of electricity if there's a power outage. In case the transformer burns out, the DC stairlift will not run and you also should possess the charger serviced.

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

Medicare doesn't cover setup prices and stairlift equipment, because they're house adjustments, not durable medical equipment. Durable medical equipment comprises lifts which are accustomed to help a patient in out of bed or a seat. In Illinois, persons with limited financial resources may be eligible for the Illinois Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Alternative. It enables individuals who supports independent living and need nursing home level attention to receive that attention at home, including coverage for home modifications. Family can be compensated for providing caregiving help. Based on the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), some private health insurance providers may offer financial assistance for some home modifications if the elevator is recognized as a medical necessity. It's best to review insurance policies that are different. Some private health or long-term care insurance can help pay for home alterations that are small. Check with your Decatur insurance carrier to examine policy options.

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

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

9) Can you rent a stair lift for an extended period of time?

Due to individual conditions you could be facing, you may need to lease a stairlift instead of buy one. Maybe you will have firm for an extended amount of time which will benefit from its use, maybe you lease your house, or someone in your household has had surgery or an accident and needs it temporarily. Sometimes, determined by the medical condition, you just can't be certain how long you will want the stairlift and renting looks like the best choice on a month-to-month basis. Some Illinois companies even offer lease to own software. However, it's important to take into account the price of installation and de-installation before choosing this alternative instead of buying a used stairlift.

10) Does AARP cover the cost of these lifts?

AARP is not a provider of insurance, but contracts with insurance companies to make coverage available to AARP members. AARP doesn't make individuals health plan recommendations and does not cover the cost of any well-being needs or stairlifts. AARP does provide coverage like other health plans and Medicare Supplement Insurance and accessibility to medical care tools to members as a resource, but third parties provide member benefits. Check with the plans which are listed under the membership services of AARP.

11) How much do electric stair lifts cost in Decatur ?

Used electrical-powered stairlifts can begin at about $1,299.00, while battery powered stairlifts can begin at about $1,399.00 in Illinois. Both versions are priced when you buy them new. The price difference is minimal initially. In the long run, electric-powered stairlifts may cost you if you factor in the amount of upkeep and replacement batteries. Often, although there are batteries that are pretty simple to install depending on the model, it is recommended to possess the battery rather than attempt to replace it yourself. Most batteries are rated to last for about 3,200 one way trips, but the life of the battery actually depends how frequently you use the stairlift.

12) Does AETNA cover the cost of these lifts?

No. Aetna bases this conclusion on whether several standards are met. 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 serious neuromuscular disorder; (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 should possess the capability to ambulate. Then, Aetna would consider seat lift mechanisms medically necessary durable medical equipment (DME). Because they're considered residence changes, nevertheless, Aetna will not insure stairlifts. They basically follow the rules for aerodynamic lift mechanisms of Medicare as described in the question that handles Medicare coverage of these medical devices.
