I purchased the less expensive self powered seat lift and find it uncomfortable for sitting for long periods, how does this model compare? Thanks for your help.
This power seat has memory foam built-in for extra comfort while the manual seat lift has a polyurethane foam cushion for those that don't need the extra padding. This particular model is our most comfortable seat lift compared to other models. Hope this helps!
Can I put it on a wheel chair and plug it in when we are in the bedroom? Then I can help my wife onto the bed.
We wouldn't recommend doing this considering the wheelchair may not be a hard enough surface and hinder the effectiveness of the seat assist. Not only this, but it might pose a fall risk. We'd recommend using a support surface (a bedside rail for example) or a mobility tool (a cane or walker) to use as leverage when standing up. Hope this helps!
How long is the power cable?
Thanks for asking! The power cable for this particular model of power seat is about six feet for ample use and flexibility with power sockets.
