    Raiser Lifting Cushion

    The Raiser Lifting Cushion is a discrete lifting device specifically designed to help raise a person that is seated, helping them to get up and out of their chair.

    Benefits of the Raiser

    The Raiser is an innovative assisted living aid designed to allow a person to be lifted out of their chair comfortably and safely. The two inflatable compartments rise individually 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 household chair with armrests.

    It’s a lightweight and portable lifting solution that can be used both on top of or underneath a cushion or blanket. This means there is no need to remove the Raiser Lifting Cushion after every use or alternatively, it can be moved from chair to chair depending on the situation. This alone makes the Raiser a perfect solution for someone who may not have access to a riser recliner, without the need to invest in any additional furniture.

    It’s size also means the Raiser doesn’t require two people to deliver it (much like a riser recliner chair), making it quick and easy to deliver and set up.

    The Lifting Cushion is not only limited to getting people in and out of a chair and has a variety of different uses, including:

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

    Who Can Use it?

    The Raiser is perfect for those living at home that may struggle getting up when seated as it allows people to safely lift themselves out of a chair in a dignified way. If the user does require assistance when using the Raiser it can easily be done with just one person, making it a valuable aid for single-handed care.

    Special Features

    • Fits on any chair with armrests and can easily be transferred from chair to chair
    • Can be used to help with getting out of a car (car charger accessory available)
