INSTALLATION OF A SERVO LIFT AT PLATFORM FOR ELDERLY
The installation of a platform stairlift in those homes where older people are present is increasingly becoming a prudential choice due to the poor balance of these people who frequently fall victim to disastrous falls. Sometimes the installation of a stairlift is an obligatory choice since the stairs are 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 to the falls due to the inadequacy of the premises that often have more or less relevant architectural barriers. Suffice it to say that, according to a study conducted for the Ulss 9 of Treviso by Dr. B. Barbato, at least 30% of the elderly over 65 report falling once a year in their own homes. The percentage rises to 50% for subjects over the age of eighty.
Often the fall is made more probable by the health of the elderly person suffering from other debilitating diseases that affect:
- the nervous system such as stroke, dementia and Parkinson’s;
- the cardiovascular system as orthostatic hypotension and arrhythmias;
- the osteoarticular system such as friction and foot problems.
70% of falls occur inside one’s 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 a rapid progress that has led to changing the lifestyle of the population.
This analysis suggests that it is absolutely essential to make public and private premises free of architectural barriers; an objective that can be achieved with careful planning of the premises in compliance with the Ministerial Decree number 236 of June 14, 89 and resorting to the installation of platform stairlifts or other devices for disabled and elderly people designed to improve mobility and ergonomics.
Stairs are one of the most dangerous places in the house and the installation of a stairlift to a Mobility Care platform appears to be a fundamental aid able to help both people with disabilities, but also all those who with the old age perceive the first difficulties to pass only a few steps daily. Not to forget the importance and the convenience of loading the shopping or other objects that would also weigh with your weight on your shoulders during the movements.
