Technology is continually advancing, sometimes this can be hard to appreciate in mobility. However a new innovative process has been created to help home-owners visualise a new stair lift in their home. The process uses “Augmented Reality” to visualise a stairlift in the home. It can be easy to forget that for some having a stairlift installed can be a big change as many have misconceptions about the impacts and never see the benefits from the increased mobility a stairlift brings.

With these common misconceptions in mind some of the largest stair lift manufacturers have produced tablet apps to help those considering a stairlift visualise the changes in their own home, the app projects an image of the stairlift onto the stairs based on the position of a paper marker. The paper marker is placed and the tablet’s camera scans the surroundings to overlay the image. This provides an accurate 3D representation to help customers see a stairlift in their own home and correct any misconceptions. This is a real issue no 2D picture, brochure or website could address.

To have a stairlift visualised in your own home please get in touch, one of our sales people can visit and visualise a variety of stairlifts (including Stannah, Thyssen and Handicare) in your own home. They can also offer you impartial, no obligation advice as we treat every customer individually and advise for what’s best for the customer in every situation in line with the BHTA guidelines.

Should you decide you would like a stairlift to enhance your mobility we provide excellent after sales service to ensure your equipment is always working at it’s best. You’ll find that our reputation for after sales service is second to none. So whatever mobility equipment you own – whether you bought it from TPG or elsewhere – we can help you make sure your products are always working exactly the way they should.
