Yet, people living in older homes may be worried their home is not compatible with a stair lift. They may think the stair lift attaches to the wall and runs along stairs that are too old to support the stair lift.
This Is Not Correct
The stair lift is not attached to the wall at all. It is attached a rail that runs above and alongside the stairs. The rail is attached directly to the stair treads on every 3-4 steps. The rail can be attached to hardwood, carpeted or concrete steps. This means the rail should be compatible with almost all homes. If the stairs are structurally sound and are still safe for everyday use, there should be no problem attaching the rail to the stair treads.
