ERGO seat for curved and straight stairlifts

The ERGO seat – one stairlift seat for all

The ERGO seat is a revolution in stairlift design. Offering unparalleled support, comfort and adjustability for users up to 160kg (25 stone) on Curve stairlifts and 140kg (22 stone) on the Horizon Plus straight stairlift.

Available on all Platinum Curve models, as well as the Horizon Plus. The ERGO is designed to give you the most comfortable ride possible, no matter your size or shape.

The ERGO seat pad and back are padded for extra comfort and are available in a variety of colours to complement the décor in your home. Check with your Platinum representative to see which colours are available.

The right-hand arm of the ERGO chair contains the directional wheel or joystick. Easily operated with just a single finger. The joystick controls the direction of travel. It is also used to operate the swivel mechanism on models with powered swivel.

The left-hand arm of the ERGO contains a Digital Diagnostic Display. This lets you know that the lift is turned on, if it needs charging and which direction it is travelling in. In the unlikely event that your stairlift malfunctions, the display will also show a fault code. Thus allowing your stairlift engineer to easily diagnose and fix the problem.

Safety is paramount and all ERGO seats are equipped with a retractable reel seatbelt, much like a car seatbelt. They also feature pressure-sensitive safety edges on the carriage and footplate, which will bring the stairlift to a safe stop should it detect any obstructions on the stairs. This might be clothing, a cat or even grandchildren!

ERGO stairlift seat models

When our Stairlift engineer measures your staircase to fit the rail, he will also work out the best ERGO seat option for you.

If you have shorter than average legs, your feet might not be able to rest comfortably on the footplate of the lift. If this is the case, you may benefit from an ERGO Plus pad, which features a specially shaped design to allow your legs and feet to reach the footplate. It also means that your knees are brought closer to your body, which can gain an extra 25mm of space – ideal for narrow staircases!

If your staircase is particularly narrow, then the ERGO Space can be used. This features a curved backrest, allowing you to sit further back into the seat. As the name suggests, this can gain even more space – 60mm or 85mm when combined with an ERGO Plus pad.

Stairlift seat built around you

When your curved stairlift is installed, the engineer will take time to adjust the ERGO chair to your body shape. This will involve:

  • Height of the arms
  • Width of the arms
  • Forward/back position of the seat pad
  • Forward/back position of the seat back

Combined with previously selected options, such as the ERGO Plus or ERGO Space, your chair will be the perfect fit and ensure your journey up and down your stairs is as safe and comfortable as can be.
