There are a wide range of lifts available in this category and it is worth researching to find the one that most meets your needs and requirements.

Remote Controls which are useful for sending the stairlift back to its original position particularly if a second person requires its use.
Digital Displays allow the user to ensure that their stairlift is working as it should and there are no issues. It will also advise when a service is due.
Safety Sensors is a feature that detects obstructions on the stairlift path rail and will stop the lift until the obstruction is removed.
All of the above features will improve the user experience and safety measures.
