    Raiser Lifting Cushion

    The Raiser Lifting Cushion is an assisted living aid designed to support and lift a person that is seated, helping them to get up and out of their chair.

    Benefits of the Raiser

    The Raiser is an innovative piece of assisted living technology that will allow a resident to be lifted out of their chair both comfortably and safely. The two compartments inflate individually and at the touch of a button, slowly lifting the seated person to a position that allows them to stand. This method is considered a great alternative to a riser recliner chair, especially as the Raiser is designed to easily fit the shape of any standard care home chair.

    It’s lightweight and portable and can be used both on top of or underneath a cushion or throw. This means the Raiser Lifting Cushion doesn’t need to be removed after every use, or that it can be moved from chair to chair depending on which resident needs to use it. These features alone make the Raiser a perfect solution for care homes with limited access to riser recliners, without the need to invest in any additional furniture.

    The Lifting Cushion is not only limited to getting residents in and out of chairs and can be used in a variety of different ways, including:

    • Lifting people off their bed to a seated position
    • Helping people get in and out of a car
    • Helping people move from a wheelchair to a standing position, or to another chair

    Who Can Use it?

    The Raiser is perfect for care home professionals providing a key aid for residents in a pressurised environment as it allows residents to safely lift themselves out of a chair without assistance. If a resident does require assistance when using the Raiser it can easily be done with one carer, making this a valuable aid for single-handed care.
