The Ableware Elevated Wheelchair Transfer Seat raises the toilet seat to the correct height for standard wheelchairs by adding an additional 3” (7.6cms).
With the elevated wheelchair transfer seat you get the combination of the raised seat and transfer bench in one simple unit. The extended sides are designed to provide enough length and stability to ensure that moving from chair to toilet is a safe action that can be performed totally independently.
The Ableware® Elevated Wheelchair Transfer Seat features side gripping slots (US patent pending). These provide a convenient and secure place to hold on to the seat during transfer but are also an aid to those who experience difficulty with bowel movement. The action of gripping contracts the abdominal muscles which stimulate the bowel muscles.
Although this seat can be used with other transfer devices if required with the Ableware® Transfer Seat there is no specific need for grip bars to be fitted to the wall or for other mobile grab bars to be available. This allows the bathroom to remain user friendly for non-wheelchair users and family members without mobility issues. It maintains the simplicity of the bathroom space and as the device utilizes the existing toilet seat, there is no impact on bathroom décor.
Measuring 25.5″ x 18.5″ x 17.5″ the Ableware® Elevated Wheelchair Transfer Seat is easily fitted to most standard toilets using a nylon bolt system. The hardware kit is provided when you order product number 725600050.
