Case Study: Chairlift for Mr Peter Scales

In March 2008 Mr Scales contacted Value Stairlifts after being involved in a road traffic accident where a transit van had swerved onto the wrong side of the road, forcing Mr Scales’s vehicle into a garden wall. The impact had trapped a nerve in his spine and he temporarily lost the feeling in his left leg.

Living in a town house, climbing the stairs was virtually impossible and after two months, he had two choices, move home or look for a solution that would allow him to use his first floor again. With a less than buoyant housing market in the UK, there was a risk of losing £10,000’s in moving home and it could take months to find a buyer.

Being a single but very active man, Mr Scales didn’t have anyone he could rely on twenty-four hours a day to assist him but still wanted full access to the first floor of his home and was determined to make a full recovery once he had received a series of operations.

In only three days and for under £2,000, Value Stairlifts were able to assist Mr Scales in sourcing a brand new chairlift complete with swivel seat for easy transfer, lapbelt for safety and security, plus two remote controls to call the chairlift.

We are pleased to report that after 7 months and several operations he has made a full recovery and is now able to walk once more.
