The Raizer 2 Lifting Chair is a battery-operated mobile lifting chair which lifts a fallen person off the floor in a matter of minutes. Faster, stronger, and more stable than inflatable lifting cushions, the Raizer chair is ideal for single-handed care and requires only limited physical effort from the operator. The Raizer ensures that a person who has fallen is lifted comfortably to a sitting or perching position in a way that supports their entire body and promotes their dignity.
Available via NHS Supply Chain. NPC: FES11386
How does it work?
The Raizer 2 is made up of seven large parts: four legs, two backrest pieces, and the seat, which holds the motor mechanism.
When responding to lift elderly or disabled people after a fall, simply slide the seat under the fallen person’s knees, click the backrest pieces and legs in place (there will be a beep when each is correctly inserted) and use the remote control to gently raise the chair. The person will be raised with the chair until both themselves and the Raizer are in an upright seated position. Both the movement and seated position are stable, controlled and dignified – perfect for shared spaces, such as care homes or public places.
Improvements over the Raizer I
The Raizer 2 is even easier to assemble. All leg sections are identical and nothing is ‘handed’ so it is virtually impossible to assemble incorrectly. There is an audible beep with a unique tone when each section is inserted correctly into the seat unit, so you can be sure it is correctly assembled before lifting. The Raizer 2 is also IP52 rated, meaning all surfaces are safe and easy to clean and disinfect.
- Quick, safe and stable operation minimises distress and discomfort for the person who has fallen.
- The users’ feet maintain contact with the floor throughout the lifting process, which helps them feels more stable.
- Once assembled, the mechanism lifts in an upright chair position for a very natural and dignified transfer.
- Ease of assembly and speed of operation allows a fast emergency response – typical operation including assembly is about 3 minutes.
- A supportive back and seated position enables one-person operation, saving both time and money.
- No physical effort is required to operate the Raizer 2, so there is significantly less risk of musculoskeletal injury to carers.
- The exceptionally long battery life provides falls response teams and ambulance services with a reliable solution that will last several shifts.
- The Raizer 2 can be charged inside any vehicle, and is lightweight and easy to transport.
- A remote control and seatbelt are included as standard. The seatbelt can be moved upwards to function as a thoracic support belt instead if required.
- The Raizer 2 seat unit is now lighter and more ergonomic to carry.

“I purchased a Raizer Emergency Lifting Chair in the first quarter of 2016 on behalf of Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation NHS Trust.
We have used it as required on our Dementia and Functional wards within an older adults’ mental health setting. Anecdotally staff are so pleased with this product. It allows an amazingly fast and dignified response to a fallen patient. Once the usual protocols are followed and the patient is cleared to be stood or sat up, it is so quick and easy to use.
Its simple colour-coded systems allows for an easy quick assembly, it allows for a much more dignified operation as compared to hoisting, without the complication of choosing and fitting the correct sling and it can be used in small spaces where the hoist is difficult to access.
With its remote control option, the number of staff needed can be reduced to one with an individual risk assessment, though we recommend two for our staff as there is a need to support the head and a two person assist makes for a more patient-centred operation.
An amazing product empowering staff to act with confidence, which transfers to patient confidence and reducing anxiety. Having the bonus of stopping at any stage to allow patients to harmonize themselves to their surroundings or stay sitting whilst extra observations can be ascertained is advantageous for all.
Once stabilised the patient can be raised into a perching position for easy exit and mobilised to a suitable alternative seating or bed space.
Absolutely brilliant, as it can be used in physiotherapy to lower a patient to the floor on a mat for rehabilitation. As an ex-engineer I just wish I had designed it!!! Thank you for supplying such an innovative product.”
