Lift chairs are also designed to help individuals go up stairs. These are very common in older buildings. However, newer buildings are starting to include them in the event of an emergency when the elevators can't be used. Two of the most common types of lift chairs are wheel chair lifts and stair chair lifts.
In the last few years as these countries have one by one joined the European Union, the costs of making these very labour intensive chairs has increased considerably for these factories, giving them no alternative but to increase their prices. This has led to some UK banqueting furniture suppliers looking to factories in China and Malaysia to produce copies of these chairs but without the many years of experience of the traditional manufacturers, the quality can be very variable. Often, where the European factories would use steam bending to shape the elegant curved forms of the banquet chair, the Chinese and Malaysian manufacturers use simpler wood joining methods, for example finger jointing or even butt jointing, methods which are not nearly as strong as the steam bending process which produces the part without affecting the strength or integrity of the wood. Therefore purchasing these cheaper chairs can often be a false economy and can end in very early replacement of an expensive investment.
First you will need to decide how long you want to be able to use the chair. Some baby high chairs will fit a child that is not even able to sit up yet unassisted yet to a 1 year old. Like the Bumbo booster chair for example. It is a great chair for little ones because it supports your child almost like you were holding them. It curls around their legs and is cupped on the bottom to have a comfortable fit. Although this is a great baby booster seat, this chair will not be able to be used for long period of time. This chair does not have straps to connect it to a regular chair to insure that when your child starts to move around more they do not flip it over with them in it. So you will have to stay close at all times while your child is in this seat. Another example is the baby high chair; these chairs typically fit old children from 1 year and above. While these chairs are sturdy and can be used for a long period of time, putting a smaller child in them usually swallows them and is very uncomfortable at first. One of the final examples is the baby booster seat; this chair can be used from about 6 months old when a child typically can sit unassisted to 3+ years old. This chair can be used almost the entire time but it is typically flat chairs with little cushion or support on the side of the chair, but is still a great chair. You will just need to decide how long you want to be able to use this chair and if you want to purchase another when your child grows out of the chair.
Wheelchair lifts are made of an enclosed area with a wide opening. The individual guides their wheelchair into it while still seated. There are operating buttons inside similar to an elevator. The entry side closes and the lift moves up or down to the desired location. Once it stops, the other side opens and the individual is able to wheel out with ease. These are very popular for employers who require a wheelchair. They are easy to use and the individual does not have to ask anyone for assistance. Wheelchair lifts must meet all ADA requirements.
