Has anyone bought a "standing up" stair lift. This is my first time stair lift buying but I definitely need a stand up version or one that doubles as both. That way it is quicker and easier to stand to get on and off it and I currently have no issues with balance particularly as I am sure they'd have a hand rail.

Which companies are best and has anyone had experience of buying one like I describe ?

Also can you give me the low down on "do's and don'ts" of buying and getting the fitted correctly ?

Is there is a cheaper way of getting them fitted perhaps ?

I am not eligible for grants or social services help as I come in at the £16,000 above in savings- so that's out. Unless you know a system that cuts past that- but frankly I feel a bit unworthy of that type help to be honest when others struggle with no money. That should cover the questions. Oh I am not weighing to much, I am only 13 stone approx. by the way. So stair lift wise I could have anything.

Many thanks
