Thread: Raised Toilet Seat

  1. #1

    Raised Toilet Seat

    So for the past 24 years I've used Lumex raised padded toilet seats and it's time to replace my current one. WTH?! They are out of stock and on back order from the different places that I've looked.

    I searched the forum with no luck, so what are any of you using?

    How about a ADA higher toilet and just a standard padded seat ??

    Medshop.com said that toilet seat was on manufacturer's back order until September and Expressmedicalsupplies.com never responded to my inquiry.

    I've search several medical supply companies as well as tried amazon.com and they all say that the toilet seat is on manufacture back order. I just hope the one that I have holds out until I can get a new one.

    I too recently discovered the Lumex raised toilet seat is not available. According to one supplier it was supposed to be available again April 2018 but now there is no date from Graham-Field. I've been using these without the splash shield for 40+ years.

    Has anyone found a raised toilet seat (preferraby padded) with openings? Or know of any updates?

    There are places that still seem to be selling the "Drive Padded Raised Toilet Seat", but I bought one a while back and the padding broke apart quite quickly. It didn't last at all like the Lumex. Alas, I have since resigned myself to a hard seat. I tried various pad inserts/covers, but none work for me.

    My Dad needs a lot of padding and stability and has used the Activaid elevated toilet seat since he was injured. You buy the frame, choose the type of seat you want (size, thickness, design). It is not cheap. But it is the most comfortable padded seat we have found, and it was recommended by his OT during rehab.

    They also came out with a new padded surface that is much more durable. The Comfortuff version. I would recommend that type of seat, it appears to be more durable - my Dad got this one last summer. Previously he had the standard cushion material and the padded surface cracked/broke down too quickly.

    Once you buy the frame, you can buy replacement cushions in the future, as needed. Still not cheap though. I'm not sure how long the cushions will last, as this is the first time we got the Comfortuff version.

    Thanks for the help folks. With no attachment to the toilet, the Activeaid models look like they would tip or fall if I missed a transfer or even leaned while sitting. (A few of their models look like electrocution chairs with chamber pots !). Again, thanks.

    The ActiveAid is very stable, and you are more likely to fall from a raised toilet seat attached to the toilet bowl than from this one which sits firmly on the floor over the toilet.
