Gordon Ellis & Co.
Stand TD C17

Building on the success of Elephant Feet, Gordon Ellis & Co. has added new black raisers to its range, helping to blend in better with a wider range of furniture to offer a more discreet solution to raising furniture. Furniture raisers aim to be the ideal solution for disabled and elderly people or those who have recently had hip or knee surgery by raising a chair or bed to reduce overbending when sitting or standing. The perfect raise height should make the user’s knees and hips level when seated, providing more comfort and stability. Elephant Feet claim to be one of the most popular furniture raisers on the market. Easy to fit, they provide a simple solution to raising furniture by offering either a 3.5 inch (9cm) or 5.5 inch (14cm) raise.
