As the paralysis or weakness affects either side of the body, the design of the Wraparound Rail enables the user to grip the rail with their 'good' hand and work their hand around the top rail thereby maintaining support while turning in order to lower themselves down onto the toilet.
The Wraparound model greatly minimises the chance of falls.
This model will also give MS patients great support, and anyone using a wheelchair requiring a front approach transfer will find the Wraparound Rail ideal.
When standing, both hands can be used to grip each side of the rail. Hand contact with the rail can be maintained while turning into a comfortable position in order to lower onto the toilet. When seated the user has support on both sides as well as at the back.

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
