Carolina’s Home Medical Equipment has partnered with Acorn Stair Lifts to help Charlotte residents.  Stair lifts, also called a chair lift, stairglide, or stair climber, are the perfect, affordable solution for those who are unable to go up and down stairs safely.

Benefits of Acorn Stair Lifts

Stair lifts act as a personal “elevator for your stairs,” and make your whole home accessible. They can safely and comfortably take you upstairs, and are ideal for people who are disabled, unable to climb stairs, and those who find using the stairs difficult and painful.

Acorn stair lifts are safe and packed full of standard features. They are slimline products, equipped with safety sensors and safety belts. You’ll also experience a smooth start and stop, rather than the jarring stops and starts of outdated chairs. They are also able to continue working even in a power outage, so you can still use your entire home.
