If the problem is temporary, budget doesn’t allow it or a new ADA toilet is not viable, there’s an alternative in the Elevated push up toilet seat with armrests. Used in a reversed position, the seat also provides an economical but sturdy wheelchair transfer aid.
The Elevated push up toilet seat with armrests raises the toilet by 3 inches which reduces the amount of bend at the hip making sitting and standing easier than when using a standard toilet.
The addition of integrated armrests provides both safety and support for anyone who needs it. They are optimally designed as grab handles for assistance for both lowering to the seat and for bearing down on for pushing up from the seat. The arm rests feature ergonomically designed lateral gripping slots which aid in the contraction of abdominal muscles when there is difficulty with bowel movements.
The Elevated push up toilet seat has an extra wide gap between the armrests of 20 ¼” meaning that the seat is suitable for people who are overweight.
By fitting the device in a reversed position, i.e. with the handles pointing towards the floor, the Elevated Push Up Toilet Seat becomes the ideal transfer aid for wheelchair users. The grip holes provide the required support whilst the extra wide seat provides space for maneuvering.
The device bolts on to all standard toilets and is easy to fit. All hardware is provided when you order product number F725600050.
The Elevated Push Up Toilet Seat has the advantage of using your existing toilet seat meaning that it co-ordinates well with your bathroom décor.
