The elevator fits under a regular home toilet seat. This model fits most elongated toilets. Works in conjunction with existing toilet seat and lid for a non-prosthetic look. Adds 3.5' to the height of the toilet seat. Weight Capacity: 300 lbs. Product weight is 2.5 lbs.
One of the biggest problems for those who are weak and frail is difficulty getting on and off commode seats due because of their low position. This simple device solves the problem by raising the height to a comfortable level with less intrusion then that of framed commode chairs. The model with arms provides additional help getting on and off commode by having arms to hold on to while lowering to seat and having these same arms to help push off the seat when getting up. Also consider investing in a shower or tub seat/bench for the same safety reasons and to allow more independence.
