Maryland Stairlifts & Accessibility Devices
When you have a limited range of motion or your mobility depends entirely on a wheelchair, your home turns into an obstacle course. And home should be the one place where you feel peace and comfort. To help you or your loved one safely navigate from room to room and floor to floor, we offer solutions such as stairlifts and automated door openers designed exclusively for residential use. At Freedom Mobility, we enjoy making homes more accessible for Maryland seniors. Whether you are located in Annapolis, Towson, Owings Mills, Glen Burnie, Hanover or anywhere else in Maryland, Virginia or Washington, DC, we would appreciate the opportunity to make suggestions on how to modify your home for better accessibility.
Climbing up and down the stairs is not only exhausting, but can also be dangerous for someone with poor muscle control or slow reaction time. Slipping and falling down the stairs is a real risk for anyone, especially seniors, but it doesn’t mean you have to move your bedroom to the first floor and never go upstairs again. Stairlifts are the perfect, affordable solution for mobility issues with your stairs, making your whole home accessible again.
How a Stairlift Works
A stairlift is a combination of two elements: a chair and a track that guides the chair. The track attaches to the stairs, not the wall, and can be placed on either side of the staircase. Prior to installation, we need to take measurements of your staircase to order a custom-cut track. Once installed, the stairlift can be activated with a push of a button on your wireless remote control. A stairlift can be powered by either electricity or batteries, both of which ensure steady operation and smooth ascent or descent.
Stairlifts can take you up and down your stairs effortlessly in safety and comfort, like a personal elevator. Our Maryland stairlifts are safe, reliable and easy to use. They also come packed with many useful features, including:
- a comfortable chair with a padded seat and back
- a safety belt for added security
- an ability to fold when not in use
- smart sensors that detect track obstruction
- some models offer backup battery power in case of power outages
Keep in mind that not all staircases can accommodate a stairlift. Your staircase needs to be at least 29” wide to allow an average person to use the stairlift comfortably. If you have more than one flight of stairs, there are curved stairlift solutions that can make a turn, so you don’t have to get up and transfer to a different seat.
Automatic Door Openers
Entry door, bathroom door, bedroom door—there are many doors in our homes that we open and close on a daily basis. Some of them can be kept open for the sake of convenience, but others often have to stay closed. A closed door can be a big challenge for a person in a wheelchair or for someone with painful arthritis. Thankfully, this can be addressed with automatic door openers that instantly make your home more accessible.
Freedom Mobility offers automatic door openers in Maryland built exclusively for residential use. At the touch of a button, the automatic door opener gives complete access to either enter or exit a home or a room. This professional-grade access system unlatches a locked door, holds it open to let you pass, and closes it smoothly. You can use either a push pad or a remote control mounted to your wheelchair to operate this mechanism. A remote is a really nice feature with extensive reach, so you can open your front door from any part of the house. This is very convenient if you need to let the dog out or let a visitor in.
Is it Easy to Install?
An automatic door opener is a low-voltage device that doesn’t require an electrician to install. It consists of two main components: the AC adapter and the door release mechanism. If you want to install an automated opener on a door that locks, such as the front door, we might need to upgrade your door’s locking mechanism first. Our automated door openers work with locks similar to those used on intercom-operated doors. They are 100% safe and secure, and can be opened manually if necessary.
