My 76 year old father lives with us and we ordered Tall-Ette elevated toilet seat after my husband’s spine surgery. He was very unsteady on his feet, and couldn’t get up and down from a chair without help, so this was a very necessary purchase.
This elevated toilet seat worked perfect for my dad after his surgery also my husband Jim started to use it after all. My dad is 6ft and 220lbs so I was concern it would be to tight, but, it is wide and my father fits comfortably on the seat. Compared to the elevated toilet seat my elderly mother uses, which does not have legs that reach the floor, this is far better for stability. Although purchased for my husband, I have tried it a few times and found it to be very comfortable. My husband agrees: he said, “Even when I’m recovered, let’s keep using it.”
The elevated toilet seat was simple to put together. I did slip off one of the blue pads from each arm – there are 2 on each side – so the feet would reach the floor more easily.
The Tall-Ette elevated toilet seat is easy to clean (just wipe it down), and disconnect and transport – I move it from the bedroom bath to the central bathroom three times daily.
I could highly recommend this Tell-Ette elevated toilet seat because I think it is one of the best on the market, and it sure is a lot less expensive than buying and installing a new higher toilet.
