Toilet Seat Riser / Handicap Toilet Seat

Installing a toilet seat riser is often necessary when the lower height of typical toilet seats causes knee, muscle or joint pain for elderly or disabled individuals. In addition, handicap toilet seats make it easier for seniors and taller people to sit down and get up effortlessly. Read More...

With their low cost and easy installation, toilet risers are a great way to adjust the height of your toilet.

Toilet Seat Riser Types

Elongated vs. Standard: The first thing to consider when purchasing a handicap toilet seat is whether you need an elongated raised toilet seat, which is specially designed for elongated toilet seats, or a toilet riser marked as “standard,” which indicates compatibility with the more round-shaped toilet seats. Be sure to keep this in mind, as many handicap toilet seats are labeled, “fits most standard toilets,” which refers to standard-shaped (or round) toilets seats, as opposed to regular toilet seats, as many people mistakenly assume.

Raised Toilet Seat with Arms: To further ease the transition between sitting and standing, some elevated toilet seats are equipped with handles. A raised toilet seat with arms can also provide stability and reduce risk of falls for unsteady individuals or anyone with limited mobility. When choosing an elevated toilet seat with handles, you may want to consider options such as padded arms for comfort or removable arms for easier patient transfers.

Padded Raised Toilet Seat: The comfortable raised toilet seat options available on AvaCare Medical are designed with foam padding that reduces pressure points and promotes better user comfort. Their vinyl upholstery makes them easy to clean, so this option is not only comfortable; it’s super convenient, as well!

Locking Raised Toilet Seat: To ensure a tight fit and seating stability for the user, look for a toilet riser equipped with a locking mechanism used to keep it securely in place.

Raised Toilet Seat with Lid: A toilet seat with a lid replaces the original toilet seat, unlike most medical toilet seats which attach underneath the current lid.

Raised Toilet Seat with Hinges: Some toilet seat risers are hinged to offer easy lifting and lowering, as well as the ability to move out of the way when others who do not need the added height use the bathroom.

Portable Raised Toilet Seat: For individuals who travel often, consider a portable raised toilet seat to ensure ideal seating even on the go.

Toilet Seat Riser Sizing

For those who need a high toilet seat, carefully check the height of the medical toilet seat you are buying to ensure that it offers the correct height adjustment for the toilet. In addition, it is important to consider the weight capacity of the item you want to purchase, with options between 250 to 600 lbs weight capacity available. You may also compare the measurements of the width and depth of the product against the measurements of your toilet to ensure an ideal fit. Lastly, when purchasing a raised toilet seat with handles, be sure to check distance between to ensure sufficient seating space for the user.

When choosing a toilet seat raiser height, you can choose a height addition of anywhere between 2” to 6”. A large percentage of toilet booster seats available on the market offer either 4” or 5”, but other options are available, as well. Alternatively, you may choose to purchase an adjustable raised toilet seat so you can attain the specific height addition you require. For example, the Universal Raised Toilet Seat by Medline is adjustable between 4.75” to 6.75”, allowing you to find the height addition that works best for your needs.
