Ease of Use

Acorn Stairlifts is officially the FIRST stairlift company to earn the prestigious Ease-of-Use Commendation from the Arthritis Foundation
Acorn Stairlifts understands that the number one priority is helping its customers maintain their independence by overcoming the difficulty with their stairs. By taking the time to speak with each person and get to know their situations and needs, Acorn has  come to know that there are many, many reasons why a person may benefit from an Acorn Stairlift.

The Ease-of-Use Program at a glance

The Arthritis Foundation created the Ease-of-Use Commendation Program to encourage manufacturers to design user-friendly products and packaging that could be recommended to the millions of people living with arthritis.

The process begins with the manufacturer submitting a product to the Arthritis Foundation for an extensive scientific evaluation. The sole purpose of this evaluation is to determine, quite simply, how easy to use a given product is for people with arthritis. The testing process is as follows:

  • Each product is evaluated by a team of scientists, who test them against a number of "pass" or "fail" requirements, specific to the type of product under evaluation. For example, how easy is it to open a medicine bottle or to operate a stationary bike?

  • The scientists then assess and establish user tasks based on every manner in which someone with arthritis might use the product, from the point at which the product is removed from the packaging - yes, even the package itself is evaluated - through multiple uses.

  • Finally, a team of eight testers who have moderate to severe arthritis are evaluated for grip, torque and muscle strength, endurance, pinch force and range of motion. The testers get to open and use the product, and then each is interviewed by the team of scientists to gather their feedback in a real-world setting.

The testing of our stairlifts included some of the following features:
What does this mean for Acorn Stairlifts as a company?

Acorn has always said that their stairlifts are comfortable and easy to those points have been scientifically proven!

Currently, Acorn Stairlifts, is the ONLY stairlift manufacturer to earn the Ease-of-Use commendation. They understand that some of their  competitors might try to follow suit, but Acorn will always be able to say with confidence that they were the FIRST stairlift to earn it.

This is yet another effort that continues to prove that Acorn Stairlifts is the pioneer in the industry, always striving to stay ahead of the game, and to help our customers by providing the absolute best solution for their needs.
