Leo Titone is 90 years old and lives with his wife in San Rafael, California. He suffers from Osteoarthritis, uses a pacemaker, experiences shortness of breath, and has a history of falls. Leo has difficulty navigating the pie shaped stairs in his two-story condominium.
Jim Fischer, one of LTS’s stairlift design specialists, was called out to evaluate this difficult pie-shaped stairway for a custom curved Bruno stairlift. The stairwell in this condo begins with 2 risers (steps), followed by 2 pie-shaped risers that turn to the right, then ascends an additional 10 steps to reach the top landing.
Measuring for a pie-shape stairlift installation requires a high-tech camera system to accurately align the custom curves to the stairwell in order to guarantee a smooth ride.
