Which is Better for the Elderly – Home Lift or Stairs?

Which is Better for the Elderly – Home Lift or Stairs?

Thailand has defined the term “elderly” as being an individual  aged 60 or more as per the Elderly Act from 2546 BE.

Thailand has transitioned into an Aged Society in 2022. Indeed, the country’s population over 60 years old exceeds 20% of the total population. And it is predicted that by 2031, Thailand will become a fully aged society (Super Aged Society), thanks to scientific, technology and medical overall advancements which will help people live longer.

For elderly, we never know what the future may bring in terms of health issues or deteriorating conditions such as bone disease, osteoarthritis or weakening strength. Therefore, canes, walkers or wheelchairs may become needed to move around the house comfortably and safely.

Many areas of a house can pose risks of accidents and falls, such as the level difference between the street and the house, door sills, stairs, bedrooms, bathrooms, or even wet tiles or waxed wooden floors. Proper awareness and design coupled with proper equipment may help prevent accidents with products. For instance, a home lift is an important help in preventing falls from using stairs.

Nowadays, home lifts’ awareness in Thai society is increasing at a fast pace, especially in the elderly population. Among all the elevator technologies, Screw-driven home lifts are synonymous with safety and space-saving.

It is the perfect answer should it be a renovated house and a newly built one as it comes with a built-in shaft (= no cement shaft is needed to support the lift, no elevator pit, no need to spare space on the upper floor for the engine room!!). Thus reducing the trouble of difficult structural work for homeowners especially when you are in the elderly age bracket.

It can be installed both indoor or outdoor. Cibes Lift is a screw home lift that can be installed in homes or buildings up to 20 meters in height.

Why is screw-drive technology best as a home lift for the elderly?

In fact, home lifts are not only suitable for the elderly, but to anyone, when carrying heavy loads or travelling up and down with children.

Is it safe?

The screw technology stands out for its safety. For instance, the Screw and Nut makes it impossible to “fall”. In addition, there are 3 additional safety features, namely Safety Bar, Safety Edge and Emergency button, so that passengers can stop the elevator at any point in time. Batteries are also present as back ups in case of a power outage so the lift can safely be lowered down to the nearest floor.
