We provide a full range of stair lift styles and options, including stair lifts designed to navigate a single flight of stairs that run in a straight line, curved stair lifts that are custom-built for staircases with bends and landings, and outdoor stair lifts that are engineered to withstand harsh elements.

Porch lifts

Whether you’re looking for a vertical platform lift or an inclined platform lift, Kootenay Columbia Home Medical can help you design the solution ideally suited to your home’s unique configurations. Performing much like an open elevator, a porch lift is ideal for wheelchair users in providing access to and from the home on a vertical-moving platform. We also offer inclined platform lifts that can travel along the incline of an existing outdoor staircase.

Patient lifts

A patient lift is a safe and easy way to transfer a patient with mobility issues in and out of bed, in and out of a bath and even between rooms. Options include overhead lifts that can be mounted on a ceiling or wall and travel along a rail, and portable patient lifts that employ a crane-like lifting action and can easily be moved between rooms. Speak with us today about our range of patient lift and patient transfer equipment options.

Bath lifts, walk-in tubs and showers

For patients with mobility issues, getting in and out of a bath or shower can be an extremely challenging and risky activity. We’re here to turn that stress into a well-deserved decompress. An overhead or portable bath lift is ideal for patients with severe mobility concerns. Walk-in tubs and barrier-free showers can be designed to retro-fit into an existing tub. We can also custom-design a new walk-in tub or walk-in shower to flow with your existing bathroom design and incorporate bench seating, massage jets and more.
