Standing from a sitting position may represent a serious challenge to some people especially as we get older - read more. At Fortuna Mobility we can offer a variety of solutions to meet your particular seating and comfort needs. Recently, SitnStand, a revolutionary new alternative, has been launched in the UK and we are delighted to be their retail partner for London.
New to the UK in 2023: we are introducing a version of the SitnStand which has specifically designed for use with a wheelchair to enable users to live a more independent lifestyle
People with difficulty standing up often use a riser-recliner chair, which helps you up to a near-standing position. The SitnStand is designed to inflate and achieve a similar rising effect but is portable and lightweight so you can take it with you when you leave home, for a visit or on holiday.
Another key difference from a riser-recliner chair is that you can use it with your current chair, so if you are only likely to have temporary problem (such as while you're recovering from an operation) you don’t have to swap your existing seat. Similarly, if you have a suite of matching furniture or you want to keep using your sofa, the SitnStand can give you the help with rising that you need, without having to swap seats.
This product was developed over a 10-year period before it was considered to be ready for launch, so it is really well designed with a number of great features:
SitnStand Position 1
SitnStand Position 2
SitnStand Position 3
SitnStand Carrier Bag
You can barely feel the seat when it’s deflated and so it’s comfortable for sitting for extended periods of time and therefore can be used by people with limited mobility. SitnStand’s unique ergonomic design makes it suitable for any style of chair, armchair or sofa.

A. The Retail price will vary according to the version, but products are available from less than £450 +VAT. The SitnStand retail price is around half the price of a mid-level Rising Recliner but we would not see it as an alternative to a riser recliner and would usually be bought in addition as it fulfils different functions. If you have a long-term medical condition you do not need to pay VAT. We can help you with the simple paperwork.
