Stairlift prices vary greatly and many factors play a role, such as the type of staircase, the desired model, location and the number of floors and curves.

With a stairlift you not only have to count on the one-time purchase costs that you see above, but you also have to pay an annual service fee to be able to ensure that the stairlift is serviced regularly and that you can get help in the event of an emergency or repair issue.

The service fee is usually 200 - 300 Pounds per year.

Is there a cheaper alternative to the stairlift?

AssiStep - Chair lift alternative

The mechanical stair climbing aid AssiStep can for many people be a suitable and less expensive alternative to a stair lift.

Due to its simplicity, it's both cheaper to purchase and the operating costs are a lot lower compared to stair lifts, since it doesn't require frequent servicing.

One of the great advantages of the AssiStep is the fact that it gives you security and support, without overcompensating. This means that you can stay active for as long as possible, with the great health benefits that comes with that.

Thanks to the patented locking mechanism, the risk of falling is significantly reduced and no care personnel is required to provide additional support.

The AssiStep stair climbing aid is also a space-saver compared to stair lifts, since the railing system extends less than 4 inches out from your wall and can be installed in stairs as narrow as 23 inches. It also works as a high-friction stainless steel handrail for residents who don't need to use the handle.

The importance of activity

Activity is the body's own medicine. With the AssiStep you choose a safe, independent and active everyday life by preserving your muscles and mobility.

In fact, a research study among 36.000 people in Norway, Sweden, UK and USA shows that continuing climbing stairs is a good fall preventive measure, since it helps maintain your balance and gait function.

Where is the AssiStep available?

The AssiStep is available in most European countries (including the UK), as well as South-America, North-America and Japan.
