How to order the correct raised toilet seat for your toilet.
We get a lot of questions about the raised toilet seats so we decided
to create this help page that should answer a lot of them and help to
ensure you get the correct product. Raised toilet seats make
life easier for anyone that has had a hip replacement, arthritis or
other disability that makes it hard for them to rise from a seated
position. A 2" to 6" rise in seated height makes a huge
difference in how easy it is for the person to get up.
Here are links to the 5 basic options that we offer:
Basically there are
2 ways to raise the commode seat height:
- Toilet Seat Riser / Raised Toilet Seat - This is a device
that goes on top of your commode. You remove the factory seat
and attach the new raised seat. Some are designed to be used
as a seat and some are designed to reattach your factory seat after the
riser is in place.
- Toilet Base Risers - This is a device that goes between the
floor and the bottom of the commode. Basically it is just a
spacer that lifts up the entire commode. While this is the
most ascetically pleasing look it will require the services of a
plumber or handyman to install.
Now, if you have
decided that a toilet seat riser or raised toilet seat is the better
option for you, then you will need to know the options available.
You will need to choose:
Do you have a round bowl commode or a elongated bowl commode? Here a
sketch we made up to make it easy for you to determine "Round" or
Then you will also
need to choose if you want arms on your seat or not. The arms
just give the user something to push up off the seat with. A
grab bar placed within arms reach of the commode will also suffice to
help the user rise to a standing position if you do not have the room
for a riser with arms.
