Sit/Stand & Perching Seat Stairlifts

If bending at the hip or knees presents a problem then this type of seat could be the answer. It is also used on staircases that are too narrow to accommodate a standard seated stairlift.

Be aware, that to be able to use these options safely you must have good balance and  be mobile enough to get on and off the lift safely. If you are prone to dizzy spells then this is not going to be suitable.

It is also worth thinking about how long it will take the lift to get to the top of the stairs. On a standard set of stairs you could expect the lift to take about 40 seconds.  That can be a long time to stand for some people.
