Lifts in the home enable people with limited mobility to travel up and/or down a range of distances. The technology that enables lift installation and ease of operation is changing rapidly in response to increased consumer demand. Thus, it is important to reflect carefully about trends and issues prior to purchase or recommendation for any residential lift.

This Summary Bulletin reviews the main types of lifts that can be used in homes and provides useful information on their characteristics, cost and space requirements, to enable informed choice of home lift.
