9) How do stair lifts work?

Basically, it is like riding in your ski lift, minus the bitter cold. A safety belt keeps you firmly in place as well as a foot rest prevents you from hitting the steps while utilizing the lift. Some stairlifts come with mounted call/send controls on the wall close to the tracks for a user or a remote control can be used by you to send the seat in which you want it to go.

Generally, depending on the brand, it costs $30-$160 to replace the battery or batteries . While some favor electric versions for reasons which range from battery life to some apparatus issues specific to battery versions, others prefer battery-powered stairlifts, because they could result in lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to control the stairlift has been considered insignificant by most manufacturers.
