The drop arm is an important feature for patients who will need help transferring in and out of the commode. The arms of these commodes can be quickly removed or moved out of the way to facilitate the easiest and safest transfer possible for the caregiver and the patient.

Drop-down arm commode chairs come in different sizes and can support varying amounts of weight. For example, bariatric drop arm commodes often feature an extra large, full width seat and are sturdy enough to hold up to 1000 pounds. Commode chairs with removable arms can also be adjustable in height, and some are even foldable for easy use while traveling and easy storage. 

For nighttime use, place the drop arm bedside commode near the bed and leave down the arm that’s closer to the bed. Once the person is sitting on the drop arm bedside commode, the arm can be raised back up for additional security. 

Features of a Drop Down Commode Chair

A drop arm commode chair features everything you’ll get with a standard commode. There is a pail, often with a lid (it’s important that a commode which will be kept in your bedroom or any room really comes with a lid since that will prevent the room from having an unpleasant odor). You can also find a drop arm commode with a padded seat, an elongated seat, easy-grip armrests, a removable backrest so that it can be used over the toilet,or legs that are adjustable for height.

And, of course, aside from all those features, the drop arm commode chair has arms that can be raised or lowered at will. This is what makes the commode with drop down arms extremely accessible.

Popular Commode Chair Choices

Guardian Padded Drop Arm Commode

The Guardian Drop Arm Commode comes with a comfortable, thick padded seat, and cantilevered arms that drop down and can be lifted up for easy and safe transferring. It also features a padded backrest which can be removed so that the commode can be used as an over-the-toilet safety frame. The foam hand-grips won’t slip even when they are wet. With an adjustable seat height of 20” to 25” (from the ground), and a lidded pail and splash guard that both can slide out from either the back or the front of the commode, this is an extremely popular commode choice.

All you need to do to lower the arms is to simply push the button!
