With 2 options to choose from, to suit everyone who needs to use the bathroom. They are also easy to move out the way when not needed.

Quick checklist

A toilet raiser can make it easier to get on and off the toilet by increasing the height. Toilets can be very low to the ground which may not be so hard to drop down onto (although can be painful), it can be much harder to get up, straining your back, hips or knees. Recovering from hip or knee surgery – adding extra height to the toilet can also reduce the pressure on your joints when standing and sitting, keeping you as comfortable as possible.

A toilet frame can give you a bit more support, using the armrests when sitting on or getting up from the toilet. The frames here are height and width adjustable to suit the different space you have around your home.

The integral raised toilet seat with frame combines the best of both in one. Avoid having to hold on to the sink or the radiator – with the security of arm rests and the comfort of a higher seat.

Support rails – or grab rails - are fixed to the wall to help, when getting on and off the toilet, in and out of your bath/shower or that extra reassurance just standing in the bathroom as you go about your daily routine.

How to know what height of raise is right for you:

1 Measure the height of your existing toilet from the floor to the top of the toilet seat

2 Measure the distance from the floor to the crease at the back of your knee. Do ensure you are wearing the shoes that you normally wear around home.

Example

Existing toilet = 16”

Height from floor to back of your knee = 19”

19”-16” = 3”, you would need a 3” toilet raiser.
