TOPRO Step - The affordable stairlift alternative

If you have problems climbing stairs, you usually have two alternatives to choose from: A stairlift or the TOPRO Step stairlift alternative.

In this article, we'll look at the differences and explain why choosing the more affordable solution can have a huge impact on your health.


Difficulties climbing stairs

Statistics consistently show that more than 30% of seniors over the age of 65 fall once a year. Falling accidents are the second most common cause of injury among seniors, just behind car accidents. Stairs can be particularly dangerous and risky for seniors, as a fall on stairs can have dramatic consequences.

Scientific research involving over 36,000 people in Norway, Sweden, the UK and the USA shows that the most important determining factor for your physical and mental health is your level of activity. One of the consequences of inactivity is an increased risk of falls and fall-related injuries. Research also shows that the following activities reduce the risk of falling:

  • Strength training and
  • Balance training.

Climbing stairs independently is important

Climbing stairs independently is therefore very important in order to remain in good health in old age. People who continue to climb stairs independently instead of using a stairlift have a higher life expectancy on the shelf.

What is a stairlift?

A stairlift is a motorized seat unit that is connected to a custom railing system that is mounted on the steps of your staircase. Stairlifts come in different sizes and designs, but all have disadvantages that you should consider before buying.

Stairlifts are mounted on the steps

The fact that stairlifts are mounted on the steps may not sound so bad. Stairlifts are usually designed for a weight of up to 150 kg.

It is therefore understandable that this requires a secure attachment to your staircase.

The problem with this, however, is that once the stairlift has been installed, you can no longer restore your stairs to the state they were in before the stairlift was installed.

An installed stairlift leaves considerable holes and marks on the steps.

Stairlifts require regular maintenance

Manufacturers and dealers of stairlifts usually offer a very short warranty period of just 1 year - and for good reason. Stairlifts are known to require frequent maintenance. The wheel bearing of a stairlift needs to be oiled regularly and the lifts use old-fashioned 12-volt lead-acid batteries that usually only last 12 to 24 months.

The short warranty period means that you as a consumer will have to budget for annual service charges to keep the stairlift operational.

Affordable stairlift alternative

The best stairlift alternative is the TOPRO Step stairclimbing aid. In contrast to a stairlift, the TOPRO Step allows you to remain active and at the same time you are protected when climbing stairs.

You receive the support you need to continue climbing stairs independently. Compared to stairlifts, the stairlift alternative is a more affordable and less invasive solution. TOPRO Step is installed as a normal handrail system and protrudes less than 10 cm from the wall. The stairlift alternative is mounted on the wall and leaves no marks on the steps.
