In this age of convenience, there are still certain aspects of our lives we can certainly improve on. While we are focusing more on making things go at a much faster rate, we are in a dire need of slowing down to think about people who do not have it going so well for them. This would include the aging population and people who are disabled. They find it hard to cope up with the pace of our life and thus could certainly use a bit of help so that they are able to live a happy independent life too.
How can things be made better for them?
Most of the time people who are traveling around in wheelchairs find it hard to access the high rise buildings or even move around houses that are on multiple levels. Stairs, let’s be a bit honest about it, are not their strongest of suites. To make things a bit easier for them, there are a lot of design changes we can bring to our houses and buildings for their convenience.
- Start introducing platform lifts around the buildings that would help make moving around easier for them. You can go for vertical or inclined system depending on the type of staircase you have and the space allocation in the building.
- Wheelchair platforms can be installed at homes that would help the person move around the levels and around the home easily. No more waiting around or getting delayed to the disability. The platform gives them the leverage they need to ensure they live a proud independent life.
- Ramps are not the only solution that can make things workout for them. You can now think outside the box and come up with even better solutions. Moving up the stairs, ramps can take a lot of space and are not as convenient as we would hope them to be.This is why you need to start thinking about introducing steplifts at your home. These are those little elevators that do not go at a height more than 1meterbut are one of the best things to happen. As long as you have a change in height, these lifts will be there to pull you up in this short travel.These lifts can be installed both for domestic as well as commercial purposes. Thinking that they are only good for the stairs outside will be wrong since they work equally well indoors too.
In this age, things are changing and for the better. Life is not as tough for the disabled as it once was a couple of decades. The elevators are not just a quick means of transport for us now. In fact, they are now becoming a blessing for the elderly and the disabled who do not have the strength and the powers to go up several flights of stairs.
