The Uplift Commode Assist offers a mechanical assist of up to 70% of the user’s weight, up to 300lbs. It can be used either by itself, or over an existing toilet. Safety features include an automatic lock in the down position (simply press a button to release the lock when rising), non-skid rubber tips on the bottom and height adjustable legs. Easy to clean, with a removable bucket and splash guard. If you use a lifting seat, the Commode Assist is the bathroom complement to provide independence, privacy and safety when you want it most!
