A Sit or stand stair lift is the perfect choice, when one person is able to sit safely when using a stair lift; while the other wishes to stand or has difficulty bending their knees. With many of the same features and options as straight stair lifts, the sit or stand stair lift gives the user the option to either sit or stand in comfort and safety.

However, this type of stairlift requires the user who is standing to be able to remain safely standing for the amount of time it takes to complete the journey up or down the staircase. The user must also be able to dismount safely at the top landing or at the bottom of the stairs.
Stand Stairlifts are for passengers that have restricted movement in the hip joints, knees or back and find sitting difficult or painful and prefer standing during the journey up and down the stairs. Passengers stand on a foot platform on the stairlift and hold onto a grab bar, arm or support.
With a Sit and Stand frame, choose the seated position or stand on the footrest. The special folding wander lead steady security bar is for stability.
