How to measure the user of the stairlift
Some basic measurements are needed to ensure that your loved one can use the Acorn Stairlift safely. It’s very simple to do and all you need is a quality tape measure and a chair.
Start by having the user sit in the chair as upright as possible. This is important because it will make sure that all the measurements are accurate.
Now you are ready to measure.
