Couch Up is a device that will help you get up from a variety of chairs, recliners, couches and beds without a struggle, even if you're someone with limited mobility. The device will slide underneath the cushion of virtually any piece of furniture, and you can simply hold onto its two arm handles to give you extra leverage. It's ideal for people suffering from arthritis or another temporary or permanent physical disability, and will blend in with the decor in most rooms.

How to Use (Step by Step)
- Slide Underneath Cushion
To start using Couch Up, slide it underneath your chair or couch's cushion, or the side of your bed, before you need to get up. You may also find it helpful to hold onto the device's handles as you lower yourself onto your chosen piece of furniture.
- Adjust Height, Width, Depth
Next, you'll need to adjust the height, width and / or depth of the device to suit both the size of your body and the furniture you're reclining on. You can do this in seconds by adjusting the device's arms and/or legs.
- Grab Handles and Move
Once your Couch Up has been adjusted to suit you, you can then grab each of the handles with one hand and push on them to give you enough leverage to stand. Remember to keep both feet as flat on the floor as possible as you do so.
Each device comes in a shade of soft black that will look good in almost any room, regardless of the decor and pieces of furniture already present.
- Holds up to 300 Pounds
Couch Up will withstand up to 300 pounds of pressure, so even if you're very overweight, it'll likely work just as effectively for you as it does for a thinner person.
- Good for Seniors
This device is a good choice for seniors who often suffer from mobility issues such as arthritis and other aches and pains. Even if you already use a cane, you'll find that Couch Up, with its dual-handled design, will give you even more leverage than you'd get from the cane alone. To use a cane and this device together, you can first lift yourself up with the device's handles and grab your cane a couple of seconds later.
- Ideal for Injured, Disabled
If you're temporarily injured or permanently disabled in the back, hip, or knee area, you'll benefit from using this device, too. You'll be able to get up off of any cushioned piece of furniture or your bed without putting an excessive amount of pressure on your "problem" area.
- Can Share With Others
If two or more people in a household have mobility issues, they'll be able to share this device, since it can be so quickly adjusted to suit each person and their chosen piece of furniture.
- Doesn't Fold up
Being able to fold up is not one of this device's features, so you'll need to find at least a few feet of room in which it can be stored when no one's using it.
- Won't Work With Hard Chairs
You'll need to have a lift-able cushion of some depth to slide your Couch Up under in order to use it properly. Hence, you won't be able to use it on hard, flat chairs or stools that have no removable cushioning or no cushioning at all.
- No Wheels
Wheels would be helpful if you find that you need to move your leverage device around a lot, but unfortunately, this particular one does not come with wheels.
Some people with mobility issues can get up with the help of a cane alone, but this is more difficult than using Couch Up. Since most canes only have one handle, using one will only give you about half the leverage you'd get with a dual-handled leverage device.
- Rocking Back and Forth
Rocking back and forth may help you get up off a couch, chair, or bed, but this can be time-consuming, and may make you look or feel silly in front of others.
- Grabbing Other Furniture
If you have a table beside your couch, chair, or bed, you may be tempted to grab that in order to help yourself up from a sitting position. However, unless your table is very big and very stable, you may end up knocking it ( and possibly yourself, too ) over.
- Asking for Help
If other people are around, one of them will likely be able to help pull you up from your seat, but then they may start to perceive you as someone who can't do things independently. Plus, if you get used to this kind of help, you may find yourself feeling helpless when you're the only one at home and you need to get up.
By using Couch Up, you won't have to invest in a special recliner that will stand up partially in order to help you rise from a seating position when you desire. Even if you find it hard to stand on your own, you'll be able to keep using the furniture you've always had.

Where is my Order
Ordered 2 Couch Ups in January - received email that the order was complete. The only thing that is completed is the charge on my credit card - still no merchandise. Will be filing a claim. Don't order this product no matter how good it looks.
