Home Accessibility Solutions 

Having an accessible home is vital to your safety, independence, and peace of mind. Don’t let your stairs get in the way of independently navigating your home. We understand that developing a plan to make sure that the entire house is easy to use can be challenging. However, with guidance from a United Access mobility specialist and home accessible solutions such as vertical platform lifts, stair lifts, and wheelchair ramps, life around the house can be made much easier. Select United Access locations offer home accessibility solutions.  

A Wide Range of Home Accessibility Products

Independence for wheelchair and power chair users is within reach with vertical platform lifts (VPL). Like an elevator, a vertical platform lift helps a wheelchair or power chair user navigate the levels of their home with ease. We offer home lift models that provide a smooth and quiet ride to help you navigate the levels in your home safely and with ease. VPL’s are an attractive option because they save space when compared to a wheelchair ramp. Our team can help you find the right wheelchair lift solution for your specific needs. 

Whether you’re struggling to get around indoors or outdoors with a straight or curved staircase, we have a stair lift to assist. Our stair lift options can be customized to fit any area of your home and are professionally installed. The lifts are a high quality, affordable solution to help you navigate the levels in your home with ease. Our outdoor stair lifts are the perfect mobility solution for your exterior living spaces such as decks, patios, and docks, and feature high-quality, weatherproof components.

Wheelchair ramps make it easier to navigate small flights of steps, over doorways, past raised landings, into showers and through sliding glass doors, all while minimizing the risk of accidents of injuries. We offer a complete line of wheelchair ramps including portable, threshold, and modular ramps. Regain your independence and minimize the risk of accidents and injuries by installing a wheelchair ramp in your home.

How do you troubleshoot a wheelchair lift?

To troubleshoot a wheelchair lift you should inspect the power source, controls, and sensors to check for obstructions or worn/broken parts. If the problem persists, you should contact United Access.

What are the parts of a wheelchair lift?

A wheelchair lift typically consists of the lift platform, actuators, lift arms, lift mechanism, and drive system. Additional components may include switch safety interlocks, control boxes, and power supplies.

Does Medicare pay for wheelchair lifts?

Medicare generally does not cover the cost of wheelchair lifts; however, it may cover costs associated with modifying a home to make it wheelchair accessible if other criteria are met (such as doctor's orders). Talk to your doctor and/or Medicare representative to explore all your options.
