The stairlifts listed here have specialised seats suitable for children with disabilities.
The stairlifts may be either controlled by your child or by you, if a parental control is supplied. They are available for both curved and straight staircases.1
To see a wider range of stairlifts (not specific to children), please see the stairs section of Living made easy.
We strongly recommend that you consult professional advice before purchasing a stairlift. Informed advice is available from community occupational therapists (OT's) who are often based in the Social Services department of your local council.2
To use a stairlift, your child must be able to sit safely on the seat during transit and transfer on and off at the top and bottom of the stairs2 (either independently or with assistance).
We have a lot of useful help and advice relating to stairlifts in the stairs section of Living made easy which you may like to read. For example: choosing a stairlift, stairlift features, alternative options to stairlifts and buying a stairlift privately.View references and sources of further information ›
