INSTALLATION OF A PLATFORM LIFT FOR THE ELDERLY
The installation of a platform stairlift in those homes where the elderly are present is becoming more and more a prudent choice due to the poor balance of these people who are frequently victims of disastrous falls. Sometimes the installation of a stairlift is an obligatory choice since the stairs represent one of the most dangerous places in the home. Unfortunately, the frequency of events is directly proportional to advancing age. Morbidity, disability and even death are some of the consequences of falls due to the inadequacy of the premises that often have more or less significant architectural barriers.

Often the fall is made more likely by the state of health of the elderly affected by other disabling diseases that affect:
- the nervous system such as stroke, dementia and Parkinson’s;
- the cardiovascular system as orthostatic hypotension and arrhythmias;
- the osteoarticular system as friction and foot problems.
Falls occur for 70% inside your home and about half of these are caused by environmental factors.
According to ISTAT 2014 data, elderly people live much longer than half a century ago thanks to rapid progress that has led to a change in the lifestyle of the population.
