ADA: Affordable Residential Elevator?

Universal/accessible design of the home from an occupational therapy and a construction perspective. This blog is part of a quest for cool, convenient, functional design that makes life safer, easier, and as maintenance-free as possible. It's about the lifestyle.
I am always searching for ways to make homes accessible in the most affordable ways possible.  Stairs are always an issue. Residential elevators are expensive to install and require a huge amount of space.   I think I may have found a residential elevator that is less expensive and requires less space than standard elevators making them a feasible alternative for residential use. Canadian residences anyway, Onward elevators are still awaiting approval to be sold in the United States.

A big round of applause for the Onward Elevator, who needs a decent website but has a great product.  This elevator takes about 4 hours to install, doesn't require a mechanics room, and will turn to allow exit from two sides if necessary.
