The Upeasy Seat Assist is manually-powered with a hydro-pneumatic gas spring; this means that it requires absolutely no electricity to function. It is lightweight and has a built-in carry handle for portability. Its trademarked technology ensures that the user is lifted – not pushed forward – from most armchairs and sofas. A fully washable 100% polyester cover and an easy-to-care-for polyurethane foam cushion make this a low-maintenance product. People who have used Upeasy elderly medical supplies and have expressed their opinions on Amazon say that “this is a perfect item for those who have trouble getting up from any kind of chair. If you have a bad back or bad knees, this item is a godsend;” “I purchased this seat for my 82 year old mom. It was easy to adjust and my mom absolutely loves it. She can now get up from chairs and couches with ease;” “Purchased this uplift chair cushion for my father suffering from Parkinson's disease. It is a bit hard for him to sit on for the entire day, but he likes to use it to help himself "exercise" in order to strengthen his legs and abs. It works pretty well in his upholstered chair although it works best on a hard chair.”
Others say that “the base of the unit has exposed metal and can/does scratch the surfaces on which it is placed for use,” but that’s just a matter of being careful when using the seat assist.
This elderly medical supply is recommended for people who have Parkinson's, arthritis and other joint ailments to sit and stand more easily.
