Medical raised toilet seats can be found in hospitals, nursing homes, and even private homes. They are used to increase the level of bathroom safety to the highest standard. 80% of falls occur in bathrooms, and 1 in four Americans over the age of 64 falls each year.
In order to lessen the chances of suffering a fall in the bathroom, there are many bathroom safety products which can be installed, such as bathroom grab bars, tub mats, transfer benches, and, of course, medical toilet seats.
What’s the Purpose of a Medical Toilet?
A medical toilet seat is placed on top of your toilet seat; it adds height to your existing toilet. The purpose of a medical toilet seat is that it makes getting on and off the toilet easier by reducing the distance the person needs to bend to get onto the seat. The reason why it’s important that the person doesn’t bend down more than absolutely necessary is that, while bending, it is possible to lose one’s balance. This is especially so for individuals with low muscle strength. Therefore, for safety purposes, it can be extremely beneficial to invest in a medical toilet seat.
