A stairlift (previously called a chairlift or chair lift) is a useful addition to many people's homes, providing easy access to upstairs when the stairs themselves become too much.

A stairlift (or stair lift) is a lift which takes a person up and down stairs, using a motorized seat which runs up and down a staircase on a rail or track. They are usually powered by electricity, and have a control on the actual stairlift itself which the person using the stairlift presses to operate.  Stairlifts are available for both curved and straight staircases, and models are available for both inside and outside.
