      Found a video about cleaning/lubricating the stairlift. Take a look here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AalD33-Zb8. It appears wd-40 and a cloth with help clean it. Make sure to use the grease they recommend in the video as the main lubricant.

    Will poly spun grip shoe covers slip on a freshly waxed floor where a commercial finish has been applied? If so how can this be avoided? Also will addition of water cause the shoe covers to be one more slippery and dry.

    Do you supply or could possibly provide information on INR Testing device. I am asking for my older patients. If yes kindly mention the company or an estimated price or quotation. Testing out the INR of blood in quite important, we have emailed many firms about it. Your reply would help us indeed.

    I have chemical protein hypersensitivity, my question is do nitrile gloves go through the same chemical processes in manufacturing that vinyl gloves use? If so are there any gloves that I can use that don’t share these chemical processes?
