Why use a commode chair instead of a toilet?
A commode chair is a type of chair with a hole in the seat that can be used as a toilet. Here are some reasons why someone might use a commode chair instead of a regular toilet:
- Mobility or accessibility issues: Some people may have difficulty getting up and down from a regular toilet due to mobility issues, such as arthritis or muscle weakness. A commode chair can be placed in a more convenient location, making it easier for them to use.
- Convenience: For individuals who are bedridden or have limited mobility, a commode chair can be a convenient option for toileting, as it can be placed in the bedroom or other nearby location, eliminating the need to go to a separate bathroom.
- Post-surgery or injury recovery: After surgery or injury, some individuals may be instructed to limit their movement or not put pressure on certain areas of their body. In these cases, a commode chair may be used to provide a more comfortable and safe toileting option.
More recently, there has been demand in user’s seeking high-end commode chairs that look like armchairs and are purpose-built to blend in with other furniture in the user’s household. It's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or occupational therapist to determine the best toileting solution for an individual's specific needs.
