What are commodes?

A commode is a movable toilet that looks like a chair. The seat has a bucket or container underneath, where the container can be removed for cleaning after the commode is used. A commode can be placed beside the bed if a person cannot go to the bathroom on their own.

How much is a commode chair?

A regular commode chair can cost anywhere from $50 to $200. However, if you prefer something more deluxe or with extra features and comfort, they could cost a few hundred dollars. Feel free to enquire prices with Patient Handling.

Commode Chairs

Home is meant to be a comfortable and safe space for those who reside in it. But when a person with limited autonomy is a part of a household, this comfort can start to fade away and home may start to feel like an obstacle course. In these cases, it’s important to make modifications to the environment to ensure complete safety and comfort for everyone.

One of the most frequented rooms in a house is the bathroom with most people using it anywhere from 4 to 10 times a day. Using the toilet or commode is simple for many people, but for those with limited mobility, it can be a challenge. A commode chair or toilet chair can significantly reduce the difficulty of using the bathroom for those who have limited mobility.

An over toilet aid or toilet commode chair is a portable chair that can be placed at the bedside of a person with a disability. In these situations, a disabled toilet seat can help a person with a disability reach the toilet easier. It comes with a receptacle that can be emptied and replaced after each use. Although they are most commonly used in bathrooms, bedside commode chairs can be placed close by for those who are severely impaired. Other aids include bariatric commodes, shower commode chairs, and portable commodes. These toilet chairs are sold by a number of different brands including Days, Etac, Juvo, KCare, Patient Handling, and R&R Healthcare Equipment.

In situations where someone suffers restriction in movement due to illness or injury, using the toilet can become a huge task. For these people, finding a way to eliminate the burden of using the bathroom is a necessity and commode chairs can offer a solution. This makes using the toilet easier, safer, and less stressful. In addition, there are a number of other benefits.

  • Independence – One of the biggest challenges for a person with limited mobility is their lack of autonomy. This feeling is amplified when it comes to hygiene and intimacy. The commode chair allows you to go to the bathroom without asking for the help of your caregivers.
  • Safety – There can be serious danger associated with using the bathroom while impaired which can lead to serious injuries. With features such as support bars, the toilet chair allows users to reduce risk without the assistance of a caregiver.
  • Cost Effective – A complete renovation of a space may not always be practical or feasible depending on the location or budget. Making permanent changes can be costly in terms of time, effort, and money. Commode chairs can be a useful temporary option that does not cost too much money.
  • Adjustable – Many commode chairs are adjustable which means that as the user’s injuries evolve, the seat can be changed to accommodate their needs. Having a higher position means that there would be greater ease when trying to use the toilet seat.
  • Suited for Wheelchair Users – Wheelchairs can make it difficult for users to access the toilet, but a commode chair can make this task easier for the user. The stability of the chair makes it much easier for a wheelchair user to access it without any assistance.
