Many people who are ageing or with disabilities find the toilet is too low and they require what is called a “raiser”. Most “raisers” are also the toilet seat itself and some of which come with lids. Many raisers sit on the toilet pan with brackets to prevent lateral movement.
The SPACER is designed with a full splash skirt which fits around the inside of the top of the pan. Bolts are used to secure the toilet seat and Spacer to the pan using the holes in the Spacer and the pan.
The advantage of this arrangement is that the Spacer cannot slip off the pan while in use (or not in use for that matter).
The SPACER also is used to raise the height of many electronic bidet seats which are becoming increasingly popular.
The SPACER is also designed to accommodate both toilet seats or bidet seats and Throne Rails.
Throne Accessories | Toilet support rails for disabled & frail aged
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
