Standing Stairlifts are ideal for people who cannot bend their knees or legs. Standing Stair lifts come with a hand rail barrier which safeguards the user from falling of the Stairlift
As well as the main function of a protective anti-fall barrier it also allows the user to use it as a grasp bar making the user more stable and giving the feeling of being enclosed in a safe confined environment
Standing Stairlifts are built to a higher specification than standard sit down Stairlifts! The footplate and chassis have been upgraded to withstand the full weight of the user.
Under no circumstances should a standard sit down model be used as a standing stairlift! The design of the footplate on a sit down stairlift was not manufactured to withstand the full mass weight of the user
If extreme load bearing weight is applied to the footplate of a sit down model there is a high risk of the chassis welds fracturing leaving the stairlift in an unsafe condition. Using a sit down model as a standing stairlift will also place excessive strain on the side rollers causing them to wear degrade more rapidly
Standing Stairlifts are ideal for very narrow staircases where a conventional sit down model would be too large to be installed. If you have a very narrow staircase then standing Stairlifts could be the solution to solving your access problems
