Mr. George Fabricante of Marina, California is a 75 year old US Veteran who suffers from high blood pressure, diabetes, and a history of falls with injury. He lives in a 2 story home with his wife.
Their home has a 13 step tiered stairway sub-divided by two landings: with 5 steps to the first landing, 3 steps to the second landing, and finally 5 steps to the top. The stairs are hardwood and prone to slipperiness. This posed an ongoing danger for Mr. Fabricante who, having very poor gait, experienced repeated falls descending the staircase.
The solution was obvious to Lift and Transfer Specialists: Mr. Fabricante needed a Bruno custom curved stairlift.
It was very important in the planning stages of the Stair Lift installation to take careful consideration of the layout of the stairwell. Because of Mr. Fabricante’s frail condition LTS needed to design the Stair Glide so that when it terminated at the top of the staircase the stairlift would not over-extend the landing and become a tripping hazard, essentially defeating the reason for the stairlift from the get go.
