Perch Seat Stairlifts are for people who have narrow stairs

Many older homes have very narrow staircases. This can be a huge setback if you need to install a stairlift. Fortunately, there are specific stairlifts available with features and options that enable a stairlift to be installed on narrow stairs.
A solution for staircases, which are too narrow for a traditional seated stairlift, may possibly be a Perch Stairlift. A perching seat position is a position between a sitting and standing position. A perch stairlift greatly reduces the minimum clearance width required for a conventional seated stairlift.
However, this type of stairlift requires the user to be able to remain safely perching 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.

Perch Seat Stairlifts are for people who struggle bending their knees

A person, with problems with their knees, might be unable to comfortably bend their knees, in which case a sit-down stair chair is possibly inconvenient. A Perch Model Stairlift eliminates the need for the usual knee clearance expected of chair lifts on staircases.
If your budget or space constraints require a stairlift to be installed, then possibly the only option available to you is to have a perching seat stairlift.
