Home / ILS Blog / What Is A Perching Stool?

Perching stools are height adjustable stools with or without arms that can be used in dry areas such as in the kitchen and in the bathroom (not ideal to use in the shower – shower stools are a better alternative to use in the shower).

Perching stools are ideal to those who struggle to stand for a long periods of time to carry out everyday tasks such as ironing and cooking.
