Toilet Support Arms allows people with reduced mobility to be more self-reliant
With the right aids and assistive products, a user can have the support they need in order to use the toilet without assistance from a caretaker. For many people, as they age, their muscles grow weaker and they become more insecure while doing simple tasks like getting on and off the toilet. For people with limited mobility it can be challenging to use the toilet, but our Toilet Support Arms will increase their chance to remain more independent and capable to use the toilet alone.
In these situations, the Toilet Support Arms can be a valuable aid by providing the user with a stable support and something to lean on when getting up or sitting down.
To assist people with dementia to see and recognize the Toilet Support Arms, optional contrasting colors are available. (special order)
Ergonomic assistive aids
The Toilet Support Arms have an elliptical shape making them very comfortable to hold onto as the shape fits perfectly in a person’s hand. The oval shape also helps to relieve the pressure on the user’s hands and forearms.
Because of this ergonomic shape, users get a comfortable and secure grip which makes them feel safe. The support arms also have a cleaning-friendly, smooth surface that ensures hygiene can be kept to the highest standards.
The Toilet Support Arms are available in two shapes, straight or wave. The wave-shaped model is designed with two built-in heights. The user can grab the highest part of the support arm to keep balanced while standing up, and the lower part of the support arm to hold on to when they are about to get up to standing position. The wave shape assures that the user will get the right support at the right moment.
The Toilet Support Arms are available in two different lengths of 30″ and 35-1/2″.
Both the Straight model and the Wave model are available in a standard version approved for 418 lbs. and 562 lbs. To increase the weight capacity, the Toilet Support Arms may be purchased with a support leg, which handles 848 lbs. and 860 lbs.
Adjust the Toilet Support Arms to suit individual needs
The Toilet Support Arms can be adjusted in height by 4-3/4″ by using a wall-mounted, height adjustable fitting. The fitting is available in manual adjustment (Allen Wrench) or by hand.
It is also possible to adjust the toilet arms into various positions and angles to meet the user’s needs.
Accessories that make it easier to use the toilet
For people with limited mobility, an optional toilet roll holder is available. The toilet roll holder can easily be clicked on the handrail and removed if it is not needed.
Also available, the standing/sitting attachment. This is a small handle that is also clicked on the support arms. The handle stands vertically and provides the user a solid grab they can use to pull themselves into standing position.
