SitnStand is a Portable, Smart Rising Seat, Portable Lift Chair, developed to help the elderly maintain their independence as long as possible.
It all started 10 years ago when a friend asked the founders, “You’re creative inventors, right? Can you invent something to help my mother stand up from her couch and sit back down easily and safely?”
So, we built a product to help Dany’s mom and other elderly who had trouble getting up and down. It took much longer than we thought. We had to invent almost every part from scratch because we couldn’t find an air pump quiet enough, air pipes soft enough to sit on while pumping or a fabric that was flexible but stiff, and not slippery that would look good in any home, or restaurant.
10 years later, after more than 60,000 hours and 200 samples and prototypes, we are launching the SitnStand Portable Smart Rising Seat exclusively in the UK!
