Bedside Commodes

A bedside commode is a non-flushing, stand-alone commode that can be conveniently and quickly positioned next to a bed or within a room where it is needed. The decided commode chair comprises an easily portable, lightweight yet sturdy frame that includes a toilet seat, a chair-like frame, and a removable waste bucket connected below the toilet seat.

We provide the best bedside commode for the elderly from the best brands, including  Care QuipDays and K Care

Using a bedside commode provides a secure, safe, and easy toileting option for care providers and patients of all kinds. Bedridden individuals who have mobility problems or are recovering from a surgery, disease, or injury can benefit from applying a toilet near their bed. Additionally, bedside commode chairs are an ideal solution for the elderly, those with a high probability of falling, recovering from a stroke, or with incontinence.

Bedside Commodes minimise the user’s need to navigate the slippery environment of the bathroom. They also reduce the need to travel too far from their bed, thereby potentially reducing accidents. 

Additionally, bedside commode users can toilet more efficiently and comfortably while maintaining their independence and dignity. They provide a relatively convenient remedy that ensures ultimate safety without compromising their hygiene or reducing independence. Besides, bedside commode chairs are easier to clean, unlike protective bed liners, disposable incontinence underwear, or possible accidents from being unable to access the toilet. They also offer greater independence. 

It is also crucial to understand that the user may have some resistance to using a bedside commode. No one enjoys losing any degree of independence they might have had previously. Due to this, users might be uncomfortable using a non-flushing aid, particularly if they need to depend on someone else to clean and empty the chair.

Various reasons make a bedside commode chair an ideal piece of equipment, primarily due to its adaptability and functionality. The following are among other advantages of using this commode. 

  • More freedom, independence for a challenged user. Among the most significant wishes of an individual who struggles with the loss of autonomy is the desire to keep doing things themselves regardless of the challenges. 
  • Improved safety for care providers and individuals with reduced mobility. Among the most significant difficulties for persons with limited mobility is the risk associated with slipping, falling, and getting severe injuries. 
  • It helps in preserving privacy. By utilising the bedside commode chair, privacy can be improved because the chair offers the user independence to perform activities by themselves. The feeling of independence that the chair provides allows the user to have a sense of dignity.
