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.

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 your stairs are straight, then the most natural choice is a straight stairlift. 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. For this reason, some people put off the decision to contact a stairlift provider as there are many questions associated with the process.  

With Handicare and Age UK Trading CIC, a free no-obligation home visit can be arranged where an advisor will answer any questions that may arise and will also survey your home to help decide whether a straight stairlift is the right choice for you. For further information, please see the dedicated stairlift tips and advice guide on this website.
