In answer to your question, yes. My mom has a disease that makes it difficult for her to breathe much less go up the stairs. What would be great is a stair lift that has a flat platform that the user could drive their wheelchair onto and then ascend. That way, they don’t have to get out of the wheel chair and onto the chairlift and then have another wheel chair at the top of the stairs. Wheelchairs are already designed to carry all sorts of equipment for their passengers so the safety aspect is already covered there. Just design a stair rail system that will ditch the chair and accommodate a platform for a wheelchair (powered or unpowered).
