A toilet chair or post chair serves to go to the bathroom safely.
The main convenience is that a toilet seat is always close by. People with a toilet that is difficult to reach due to a staircase or difficult door often opt for a toilet seat that is in an easily accessible place . Also people who have to go to the toilet a lot at night to place a toilet seat closer.
Wheelchair users, people with paralysis or muscle disease ... etc. sometimes need a lot of physical support, so sitting in a normal toilet is unsafe. Toilet seats ensure that the body is sufficiently and correctly supported , often toilet seats are softened by a toilet seat cushion than standard toilets , which is good for people who suffer from bedsores .
Toilet seat on wheels or without wheels?
A mobile toilet chair on wheels , or a toilet wheelchair , is useful on the one hand for moving the post chair , but also for the less mobile people to be moved. Many toilet seats on wheels are also made to place in the shower . That way you don't have to move around and there is less risk of falling. We recommend people who are still mobile enough to choose a fixed toilet seat. After all, a fixed seat is safer when you stand up and possibly forget to lock the brakes on the wheels. There are also mobile toilet seats without a bucket . She can move this to above the toilet. Most toilet seats do have a removable bucket so that you can always drive above a toilet, if the width of course allows it.
Toilet wheelchair for in the shower?
Often a multifunctional toilet chair is chosen that can also be used in the shower. This is usually referred to as a 'shower and toilet wheelchair'.
Why do prices vary so much?
The prices vary enormously due to the many different options that a toilet chair or post chair can have:
- with or without wheels, with or without folding footrests, with or without toilet bucket, with or without soft cushions, material that can get wet in the shower or not etc.
