Perch Stair Lifts
Perch stairlifts allow individuals who find a seated position too uncomfortable to travel in a near standing position, up and down the stairs. The perch seat sits just underneath the user’s waist, allowing the user to comfortably be slightly seated in a near-standing position when using the stairlift.
Perch stairlift seats come with extra safety features, to ensure the user is completely comfortable and supported for the journey. As the user will be in an almost standing position when they are using the lift, the shortened seat and retractable seat belt provide a stable support area for users to 'perch'.
If you have restricted movement in the knee or hip joints and finding sitting for short periods of time uncomfortable, a perch stairlift is the perfect solution as the user is transported in a perching position.
A perch stair lift can also be a useful solution for homes with narrow stairways, where a regular stairlift can not be installed. Carelift Services provide Handicare stairlifts, the perch seat is available for the 950+, 1000 straight and 2000 curved stairlifts.
