This Rail enables the user to have support close to the body, where it is most needed. This model has a weight loading of 110Kg.
The user is able to lower safely onto the toilet and pushing up from the seat is also much easier. The Rail is safer than over frames as it is rigidly fixed to the toilet pan, and also does not need to be removed for other users.
The handles can also be folded down in order to facilitate a wheelchair transfer. Additionally, either one or both handles can be removed to suit some requirements.

The Throne Toilet Support System of hand rails is UNIQUE and has been designed to:
Answer the widest range of needs of assistance in toileting for both adults and children.
Encourage independence for the user
Provides hand rail support close to the person’s body
The Throne product range is at the forefront of assistive technology. Throne Rails and Spacers (toilet seat raisers) are for people who are temporarily or permanently incapacitated, and frail aged. Throne toilet rails have been designed specifically for the comfort and dignity of anyone requiring assistance with toileting, and for the Occupational Health and Safety needs of all carers; family, volunteers, nursing home staff, hospital and school staff.
Throne Toilet Rails are established Assistive Technology devices designed by an Occupational Therapist, Helen Kelleher, who worked extensively in the area of Home Modifications. The Throne Toilet Rails offer an alternative to most toilet aids available and have been in the market for over 12 years. They provide closer bi-lateral hand support to the user and have greatly improved access and safety in toileting.
The concept consists of placing the rails closer to the user’s hand grip and not on the wall. This allows for easier access to lower onto the toilet and makes it easier to ‘push up’, rather than ‘pull up’.
The toilet support rails are designed for people with disabilities or impairments, including but not limited to:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Cerebral Palsey
- Hip & Knee Replacement
- Sports Injuries
- Frail Aged
- Post Surgery
