The toilet seat.
A toilet seat is very often used in home care so that you can use the toilet more easily (and more gently). A toilet seat ensures that you have to stoop less deeply to sit down and get up again more easily. With a toilet seat you sit higher on the toilet, which means that standing up becomes less intensive . It makes it easier to get up . It is recommended to anyone who has difficulty sitting and standing up the toilet.
The toilet seats are available in various designs. Such as, for example, simple portable booster seats, but also a screw-on model that can be adjusted to three different seat heights and three different seating angles without tools.
Which toilet seat should you choose?
How do you determine the correct height?
The best ergonomic position to sit on your toilet is when the knee rises a little higher than the groin. To imitate that attitude, we recommend that you 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 to be able to order the correct height of the toilet seat.
When purchasing a toilet seat, we also recommend that you purchase a step to raise your feet to promote bowel movements.
The choice of the right model depends, among other things, on your own wishes and needs:
Toilet seat with lid or without lid?
For general hygiene, a toilet seat with lid is often purchased to shield the environment from unpleasant odors.
Toilet seat with armrests?
For people who can use extra help and support while standing, we offer toilet seats with extra armrests. We have a toilet seat with a fixed armrest, but also a height-adjustable toilet seat with a folding armrest.
Toilet riser in PVC or in soft vinyl?
Do you sometimes suffer from irritation on the bottom or does your glasses feel too cold? Then we recommend choosing a soft vinyl toilet seat. This feels warm and pleasant and is easy to clean thanks to the washable white vinyl cover.
Toilet raiser in contrast color?
White aids in a bathroom with often many white elements provide little visual contrast. As a result, they are less well noticed by people with dementia and / or visual problems. That is why a toilet seat in a contrasting color is recommended for this target group
In general, toilet raisers are recommended for many (early) conditions such as osteoarthritis, arthritis, alzheimer's, after a stroke, cva or bleeding, general muscle pain.
This is usually purchased together with an extra wall bracket, toilet bracket, toilet frame on (bath) step .
