For anyone who needs help to sit or stand especially when using the WC, there is now a new option that covers virtually every consideration.
The Osprey Toilet Raiser https://www.aatgb.com/osprey-toilet-raiser/has been purpose-designed to encompass optimal variations.
Height adjustable, it will fit round most WCs, including Geberit’s Mera wash and dry toilet. It can even be accessorised into a commode!
The Raiser is simply positioned over the WC and adjusted to the correct height to accommodate both the WC and the user; designed for optimal stability, there is no need to screw to the floor.
It is certified safe to use within a bathroom but can easily be used in the bedroom as a bedside sit/stand commode.
Simple push-button operation means most people can understand and operate it; if you have reduced manual strength, then voice activation is available as an option.
An emergency call button can also be added if needed.
When triggered, the battery-powered Toiler Raiser fluidly and gently raises or lowers you over the WC or commode. Each battery charge will power up to 100 lifts: an integrated battery level indicator ensures the risk of being left without power is minimised.
The Toiler Raiser has a user safe weight limit of 30st/190kg.
“If you use an AAT Sit n Stand or a riser recliner chair, chances are you will find the Toilet Raiser a benefit to your daily life,” comments AAT Director Peter Wingrave. “It provides the stability and strength to help you on and off the WC without you having to rely on someone to support you, giving you back your dignity and independence in a very intimate daily occupation.”
