Custom Stairlift solution for Gavin

Mr. Gavin B. approached Western Elevator Ltd. in 2009 with a challenging request.

Could Western Elevator provide a stairlift solution for a man with no arms. This had never been done before, so we contacted our stairlift supplier Bruno Independent Living Aids with the request. Most manufacturers would have said, sorry, no, our product cannot be changed.

Bruno was different. They had an engineer call us back to tackle this challenge. It took six months, BUT they made several major changes to the stairlift design.

The controls for a stairlift are usually a rocker switch on one of the armrests. Bruno suggested that we put the controls on a new special padded control on the back rest cushion at shoulder height. Gavin would simply lean back and press the control with his shoulder. Bruno then put in a power swivel so that the chair would automatically swivel at the top.

Gavin was pleasantly surprised and very happy with the solution. Gavin has been using his new stairlift without a problem and has complete access to his entire house again.

A big thanks to Bruno and Western Elevator from Gavin.
