Talking About Toilet Safety

Posted on: January 27th, 2012 by LAMedicalBlogger

“Like sitting on a real throne,” says Kate.  Visits to grandma’s house are always entertaining with a little one.  My little one was in wonderment last Saturday, when using grandma’s safety-enhanced bathroom with the raised toilet seat and toilet safety rails that Kate says makes her feel like royalty when she uses it.

This instance reminded me that unless you’re around home medical equipment or nursing homes, most of the population doesn’t know the facts about toilet safety equipment until they have an immediate need for them.  Here it goes…

Elevated or Raised Toilet Seats

This high structure atop a toilet seat prevents the user from having to sit at a 90 degree angle or in some toilet designs, even lower.  With a user with any leg instability at all, standing from sitting on a low toilet can be very difficult.  At LA Medical Retail, we offer an elevated toilet seat that locks to the toilet for maximum safety and also a basic raised toilet seat that can easily put on and off the toilet.

With Tool Free Arms

Some of our elevated toilet seats come with metal arms that can be easily removed if unneeded.

Toilet Safety Frame

A popular bathroom safety product at LA Medical Retail is the toilet safety frame that customers either choose in addition to their raised toilet seat for added safety or instead of the raised toilet seat.  The safety frame attaches to the frame of the toilet to offer full support to the user when pulling up off the toilet.

Toilet Safety Rail

For minimal installation of hand rails, some customers choose the stand alone toilet safety rail.  This railing option fits around the base of the toilet and includes padded armrests and a magazine rack.

Do you have any of these products in your bathroom or have you used them at a friend’s house?  Let us know what you think!
