Stair Lift Or Stair Glide? What is in a Name?

you can see, the history of the innovation determines the naming of products we use today. Perhaps if you live in the UK, Canada, or Australia, a stair lift makes more sense. Perhaps stair glide makes more sense in the USA. I don't know.

What I do know though is that, today's stairlifts are really easy to use, functional, quiet and a pleasure to look at. They can easily become a centerpiece and a point of interest for any visitor to your house.

And, when you think about it, going up the stairs, you may as well call your device a stair lift, as it lifts you to the place where you would normally have a hard time going on your own.

Going downstairs, you will get a feeling of gliding though. Just visualize an eagle taking of from a rock by the mountain top, and gliding downwards, toward the valley below: Quiet, elegant, and a real pleasure to look at. So maybe riding downstairs, your stair lift really turns into a stair glide.
