The commode chair – the portable toilet
It’s always where you need it: A commode chair is the ideal product for anyone, who, for example, cannot go to the toilet at night on their own. This item is a medical device and is discreet. Parked right next to its user’s bed it immensely shortens the way to the next toilet. The bucket placed under the seat to collect urine and faeces is detachable for an easy and hygienic cleaning process. A lid covers the bucket and prevents odors. After using the commode chair you can just go back to sleep.
Most of these items have rolls and are therefore mobile. People in need of care can be pushed to the bathroom while sitting on a commode chair and then can be placed on the regular toilet. It can also serve as a toilet seat riser. By using it, users don’t have to bend down as much as on regular toilets. This and the foldable armrests also make it easier for men and women to push themselves back into standing position, which minimizes the risk of injuries. Placed somewhere at home with a lid and a cushion on top, this special chair can also be used as an ergonomic shaped seat or a like a wheelchair. Adjustable footrests provide even more comfort.
Anyone who needs the commode chair only at night, should look at foldable devices in this segment. They can be stowed away quickly. Some of these items can also be used as shower chairs.
Whom are commode chairs made for?
Someone who underwent surgery or had been in an accident and, therefore, is not as mobile as they used to be, or elderly people can save their strengths by using toilet chairs. There are special models available for women and men with obesity. Anyone who is significantly smaller or taller than average, should buy a commode chair that is adjustable in height. Hospitals and nursing homes need medical equipment like this daily.
In our online shop you can find extras like buckets with lids made for commode chairs. We also offer toilet seat risers. These products – unlike the chair – permanently raise the level of your toilet, because they are firmly mounted to the bowl.
