When choosing a bedside commode chair, there are several factors to consider:

  1. Size and weight capacity: It's important to choose a commode chair that is the right size and has a weight capacity that can support your weight. Please refer to Fred Mill’s size guide to ensure your commode chair is a suitable height for comfortable transfers in and out of the chair.
  2. Comfort and convenience: Look for a commode chair with a padded seat and backrest for maximum comfort. Other features, such as a removable bucket for easy cleaning will also add convenience.
  3. Stability and safety: Make sure the commode chair is sturdy and made from long-lasting, good quality materials such as oak wood to help with stability.
  4. Easy to clean: Choose a commode chair that is easy to clean and maintain. A removable bucket with a lid can make it easy to dispose of waste and sanitise the chair after use.

By considering these factors, you can select a bedside commode chair that is safe, comfortable, and convenient. It's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or occupational therapist to determine the best commode chair for an individual's specific needs.
