Benefits of Using Raised Toilet Seats

  • Adding a raised toilet seat to the existing toilet seat protects the user from having to bend low to sit down properly. The toilet seat riser proves easy on the legs, back and the knees. The height of a raised toilet seat is generally between 3 to 6 inches. This means the user can cut down on his bending by 3 to 6 inches. 

  • Elevated toilet seats allow less stress on his knees and hips and also reduce chances of falls and injuries. And since most raised toilet seats are height adjustable, individuals can adjust the height as per their requirement. However, the height adjustment should be practical so that the individual’s feet are planted firmly on the ground despite a toilet seat elevator so as to avoid falls. 

  • There are raised toilet seats which fit in below the existing toilet seat while others are placed on top of the existing seat. Some raised toilet seats have a snap-on style for securing to the existing seat while some elevated toilet seats are held in place with brackets and bolts. The latter mechanism makes it more secure. 

  • Those who need assistance sitting down on a toilet seat or getting up from it can opt for elevated toilet seats which have grab bars attached or can be affixed. Grab bars can be really convenient for those who have limited dexterity or limited range of motion.
