Stairlifts are mechanical devices which lift people and wheelchairs up and down stairs. One of the leading names in is Bruno, among the few manufacturers in North America which has been manufacturing them for over a quarter of a century now. A stairlift is the perfect solution to someone with mobility issues. This is especially applicable to seniors or handicapped people suffering from knee, leg and hip disabilities which make it difficult or impossible for them to climb stairs.
