Slide Up the Stairs in Style with the Curved Stair Lift

Remember when flat, uncomfortable inclining lifts were installed in dank, musty homes?  Remember how jarring the ride appeared when it jerked you slowly up the stairs with a loud and awkward mechanical monstrosity that you had no choice but to design the stairway (including wallpaper and rails) around to accommodate?  Well those days are no more my friends!  French company ThyssenKrupp Monolift have devised the clean, white, cyberprep-looking lift that looks like it can be infused seamlessly into many home motifs.  Easy to install and definitely more economical than installing an elevator, the chair is a simple and accommodating solution for those who’ve saved all their lives for the 4-story dream home and find the stairs a little tough on the knees.  Needless to say, it’s definitely a clean-looking device! – via

    I don’t like to be the guy who always points out the downside of new technologies.
    That said I want to first say it looks great and definitely an improvement on the older versions, but I wish that it was installed against the wall versus at the railing. I am just imagining grandpa there who still prefers to walk up the stair having to really extend to grab a hold of the hand rail in order to avoid falling down the stairs.
    Sorry I am an architect and I have to think of the innovative and practicality.

    Yeah its cool improvement in technology but still people like to walk up as Patrick said. On other hand, we won’t know what they feel, so we will see when we grow old.

    Walking up the stairs can be difficult for elderdly people as well as for people having (physical) disabillities.

    Stairlifts can help people to get their independence back and is a good alternative for putting them in homes.
    @Patrick: I think this was just an example. There are several models of stairlifts, depending on the stairs. There are stairlifts for inside as well as outside curves, or stairlifts for straight stairs.

    Installing it against the wall would have been a better idea. In the case of curved stairs the inside is usually narrower so harder to walk. Then it would be a good idea to place it on the inside.
