Thyssenkrupp Home Solutions believes in the stair lift market
“The value of the Italian stair lift market reaches 60 million euros, a value doubled in 10 years,” said Alessandro Bargellini, thyssenkrupp Home Solutions CEO, presenting the new S200 stair lift.
The increase in the number of elderly people living alone at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic increases the risks associated with the presence of home architectural barriers.
With 13.8 million people aged over 65, Italy ranks second globally in terms of population ageing and has more than 2.5 million people over 74 years of age living alone, 13% of whom have very severe limitations in their daily activities. Considering the growing number of home accidents connected to falling, it is becoming essential to adapt living spaces.
Thyssenkrupp Home Solutions estimates that in 2020, 9000 staircase chairs were installed throughout Italy: Lazio, Lombardy, Veneto and Tuscany are among the regions with the highest demand..
