Standing Stairlifts

There are many different types of stairlifts available on the market today to allow those with mobility issues to regain or retain independence.  Standing stairlifts are specifically designed for those people who have difficulties bending their knees or joints.  Seated stairlifts, on the other hand, are more suitable for those who have weak legs and feel unsafe standing on a platform.

Seated Standing Stairlifts

There are now also stairlifts on the market that are known as seated standing stairlifts.  These are particularly relevant for people who have more than one member of the household that has mobility issues, but whereby the mobility issues are different.  This is a fantastic option for couples where one person has issues with standing and the other has issues with sitting, without the need for two separate stairlifts.

The design of seated standing stairlifts is amazing and comes with some brilliant features, such as:

  • Stead bars
  • Foldable parts to ensure no part gets in the way of a single user

Seated Standing Stairlifts Accessories

There are many accessories available for seated standing stairlifts, such as:

  • Safety locks
  • Seat belts
