A toilet raiser.
A toilet raiser is very much used in home care so you can use the toilet more fluently (and softer). A toilet raiser ensures that you do not have to bend less deep to sit down and get up more easily. On the basis of a toilet raiser you sit higher on the toilet so that standing up is less intensive . It facilitates the rising movement . It is recommended to anyone who has difficulty sitting and getting up from the toilet.
The toilet risers are available in different versions. For example, simple portable toilet seats, but also a screw-on model that can be adjusted in three different seat heights and three different seating areas without tools.
Which toilet seat do you prefer now?
How do you determine the correct height?
The best ergonomic position to sit on your toilet is when the knee is a little higher than the groin. To imitate that attitude we advise you to place a number of books on your closed toilet. Do you have the right height? Then measure the height of the books + the height of the glasses and lid in order to be able to order the correct height of the toilet seat.
We also advise you to buy a step by step when purchasing a toilet seat to place your feet higher to promote bowel movements.
