SitnStand is a manufacturer of rising seat products that allow people with mobility limitations to sit down and stand up more easily. As the worldwide population continues to age, there are a growing number of people dealing with illness, fatigue, and injury. SitnStand’s products provide these people with additional independence by allowing them to sit and stand without needing assistance from a loved one or caregiver.
The idea for SitnStand was inspired by a friend whose mother was having difficulty standing up from the couch. The goal was to provide her with a product that could help her get up and down from the couch in a safe and comfortable manner – and after hundreds of prototypes and thousands of hours of work, SitnStand was born.
The company currently manufactures several different sit to stand chair lifts, including a model that is specifically designed for use with wheelchairs. The product works by using an air pump to inflate a portable rising seat, enabling the user to get the additional support they need to stand up from a seated position.
