Perch Straight Stairlift

Straight Stairlifts

A perch seat stairlift is ideal for individuals who find a seated position too uncomfortable. Perch seat stairlifts are very similar to standing stair lifts, with the exception that they provide additional support, so the user is transported in a perching position. If you have restricted movement in the knee or hip joints you may find sitting painful. In these situations a perch seat may be the solution.

A perch seat means that the user is almost in a standing position when they are using the lift. There is a shortened seat and retractable seat belt which provide a stable support area for users to 'perch' on. Straight perch seats are available on the Age UK Simplicity+ and Age UK 1000 Stairlifts.

"All of the men were a credit to your company"

" They worked diligently to ensure the stairlift was fitted properly and they were very patient and helpfully explained the new operating procedures. All of the men were a credit to your company. "

Stairlift options to suit your home

The style of your primary staircase in your home will dictate the type of stairlift you decide upon. If you have straight stairs, then the most natural choice is straight stair lifts. Straight stairlift tracks can only travel in straight lines, so if your household has two consecutive straight staircases that are joined by a landing, then you may want to consider curved stairlifts or what is known as a transfer platform stairlift. This choice will depend upon the user’s level of mobility. For more information, see the stairlift tips and advice section, with reference to the guide ‘how to choose a stairlift’.

Stairlift advice from a name you can trust

Even though struggling with the stairs is a common problem that affects many across the UK, the decision to install a stairlift is significant and comes with many questions.
