Perch Stairlifts and Perch/Stand Stairlifts

 

A perch stairlift with a perch seat or standing stairlift assist passengers to sit on a perch seat or stand on the stairlift; passengers that have restricted movement in the hip joints, knees or back find sitting difficult or painful. 

 

If you have restricted movement in your knees, or your legs will not bend enough to allow you to sit down on a stairlift there are mobility solutions to help make it easier for you to get up and down the stairs, such as a perch seat which is available for both straight stairlifts and curved stairlifts. Perch seat stairlifts have a platform for the user to stand on and a small seat which the user can lean against as they travel up and downstairs.


The perch seat is placed above the stairlift carriage and is much smaller than those found on the standard chair seated versions of the straight stairlifts and curved stairlifts. The perch seat reduces the struggle of movement in and out of a chair when mounting and dismounting from the stairlift.
 

Perch seat stairlifts help passengers finding sitting challenging, difficult or painfult to sit. Perch stairlifts are very similar to standing stairlifts except that they provide a small amount of additional support, a perch seat for the user to "sit" in a standing position. The passenger is transported in a perching position, a position between sitting and standing.

 
The Perch Stairlift is also perfect for people who have narrow stairs. The perch model can include a comfortable grab rail for extra security, a guard rail, a single bar, or arms at either side of the seat to hold on to, or a wander lead control which can be positioned for maximum comfort and ease of operation, while the stairlift is in motion.
