Handicap Toilet Seats / Toilet Seats for Disabled Person

A handicap toilet seat makes it easier for individuals with disabilities to get on and off the toilet seat. Disabled individuals often find it difficult (and many times even painful) to crouch down in order to get onto the toilet. A disabled toilet seat is placed on the toilet to elevate its height by several inches, therefore requiring less bending in order to get down onto it. Read More...

Benefits of a Handicap Toilet Seat

Do your knees ache when you bend them? Do you find getting into a sitting position to be strenuous? Do you suffer from backaches, hip pain, or stiff joints? All these conditions can make it painful to use a toilet with no increased elevation. 

A handicap toilet riser or raised toilet will significantly ease the process of getting onto the toilet. It will even make it easier for a handicapped individual to transfer from a wheelchair to the toilet seat, since the elevated toilet seat is more level with the wheelchair seat.

Falls can sometimes occur while the individual is trying to bend his body into position. A shorter distance between the person and the toilet seat will decrease the likelihood of falls, and thereby promote bathroom safety. 

Types of Handicap Toilet Seats

There are two main types of handicap toilet seats: Raised toilet seats, and toilet seat risers. Both will make it easier to get onto the toilet. A handicap raised toilet seat is placed on top of the toilet seat, and a handicap toilet seat riser is placed between the toilet and the seat. 

Choosing a Toilet Seat

There are all kinds of handicap toilet chairs available on AvaCare Medical; one of the most popular online medical supplies stores in the US. Choose from handicap commode seats that are elongated or round, padded or unpadded, hinged, or even contoured for a most comfortable feel. There are handicap toilet seats with handles, and even ones with legs. 

Shape

Be sure to check that the handicap toilet seat you’re looking into will fit on your toilet. If your toilet is elongated, get an elongated seat, and if it’s round, look for a round handicap toilet seat. Also, if you’re thinking about going with a wider toilet seat, before ordering one, take into account how much open space there is around your toilet to ensure the wide seat will fit.

Height

Toilet seat heights range from 2 to 6 inches. Choose a height that will allow you to sit on the chair with your heels and toes touching the floor. Be aware that a seat that is too high (ie your feet can’t fully reach the floor) is not safe. 

Arms

A handicapped toilet seat with arms provides optimal support while getting onto and off the toilet seat. It is known to prevent falls and therefore decrease fall-related anxiety. Some toilet seat arms are able to be taken off and put back on, for practical purposes.
