Preventing Falls on Stairs with an Acorn Stairlift
Acorn is America’s number one selling stairlift because Acorn is passionate about stairlifts. It’s all Acorn does. From engineering to manufacturing, customer service to installation, and helping you discover how a stairlift can be an affordable solution, Acorn does it all. Acorn Stairlifts is the Stairlift Expert.


Professionals who study why people fall on or from stairs have identified three main contributing factors:

Environmental factors including poor design, construction and maintenance of stairs, non-existent or dysfunctional handrails, poor lighting and other features such as poor tread surfaces.

Health factors including reduced vision, weakness, drowsiness, loss of balance or an inactive lifestyle.

Behavioral factors including lack of concentration, carrying something while using stairs, running, unsuitable footwear, unfamiliarity with the stairs (although most stair-related injuries occur on stairs that are familiar to the fall victim) and decisions whether or not (and how) to modify or maintain the stairway environment.


Accessible housing refers to homes that are designed or modified to enable independent living for all residents, including seniors or persons with disabilities.

Accessibility can be achieved through architectural design and also by integrating accessibility features, such as lowered light switches, grab bars, walk-in bathtubs, lowered shelves and cupboards, modified furniture or by installing electronic devices in the home.

Stairs in the home can be dangerous and can be a barrier to accessibility unless they are designed or modified to reduce the risk of falls. If residents have limited mobility, it may be necessary to install ramps, home elevators or stairlifts to make the home safe and accessible.

A high percentage of people who visit hospitals after a fall on or from stairs or steps in their homes are seniors (men and women 65 years or older). When seniors fall, the consequences can be severe and long-lasting.

Most falls on stairs can be prevented. Prevention starts by keeping in mind that there are risks in using stairs. Good planning and simple strategies can help prevent falls and injuries.


People can fall anywhere in the house where there are stairs, including entry stairs, stairs leading to another floor, the back doorstep or steps leading to another room. Falls resulting in serious injuries can occur even with a single step.
