Raised toilet seats are designed to reduce the distance that a person has to move when they need to sit down on the toilet. By elevating the toilet seat by a few inches, it can make a considerable difference for elderly people who find it difficult to sit and stand from the toilet.
Benefits of a raised toilet seat :
People who have difficulty in bending their knees or have joint stiffness, or unstable or weak hips, recovering from hip, knee, or back surgery, and those who find it hard to stand, sit, or transition from a standard toilet may use the elevated toilet seats.
The raised toilet seats raise the toilet height 2 to 6 inches above the original seat height.
There are two standard types of toilet seats, round front (roughly 16.5" long) and elongated (roughly 18.5" long). The rised toilet seat must be selected accordingly.
