Perch seat: for narrow staircases or users with restricted hip movement

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 best solution for you.

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 provides a stable support area for users to ‘perch’ on. This means that Perch Seats may also provide a solution for particularly narrow staircases where a user would not have room to travel in a seated position.

Upholstery is available in a choice of six colours.

Your Handicare supplier will be able to advise you which seat is most suited to your needs.

Available options for this stairlift

    For those requiring full powered options, the 950+ is a stylish solution that overcomes the challenges of climbing straight stairs. It combines the continuous charge track of the 950 with the seat of the Handicare 1000, which means it is available in a selection of six colours.

    The 950+ offers the choice of manual or powered folding footrest and swivel options.

    The 950+ is compatible with the Handicare's unique powered Slide Track or manual hinge system so if you have a doorway close to the bottom of your stairs the 950+ offers you a choice of solutions to prevent the track from causing an obstruction.

    As the name suggests, the 950+ incorporates all the standard features of the 950, but with the option of upgrading the stairlift with a host of useful powered and automatic options and extras.

    The ergonomic toggle control was designed in consultation with occupational therapists, making the operation of the stairlift simple and easy, even for users with joint problems, such as arthritis or rheumatism.

    A major benefit of the 950+ is its continuous charging function. Unlike some other stairlifts, the 950+ does not have to be parked at a designated charge point - the lift is charged at any point along the entire length of the track, so you can leave the stairlift wherever you want and be confident that it is on a charge point and ready to use.

    The seat on the 950+ is wipe-clean and available in a choice of six colours.

    With one of the slimmest straight stairlift tracks on the market, the Handicare 1000 offers minimal track intrusion into the staircase.

    This slimline aluminium track has a hidden rack with two park points as standard so the battery can be charged at the top or bottom of the stairs. It can also be supplied with a powered hinge to prevent the track obscuring a doorway at the base of the stairs.

    The 1000 straight stairlift comes as standard with a (manual) fold away footrest, seat and arms meaning the lift takes up less room when not in use, allowing more space for other stair users. 

    The Smart Seat delivers a choice of six upholstery colours and optional powered features to turn the seat at the top of the staircase or fold the footrest after use.
