    Customer Questions & Answers

    • Question: Can this product work with a regular toilet by removing the bucket?

      Answer: Yes it will. You can remove the bucket and place the chair over the toliet. It also comes with a splash guard to replace the bucket which will contain the splashes. The back is removable allowing the seat to slide back towards the toliet tank so you can center the chair above the toliet bowl.
    • Question: Why does description say non-padded when the photo image shows padded? So is it indeed padded or not? I need it well padded. Thanks!

      Answer: G98202 is the non-padded version, G98204 is the padded version. Two different lines in the description.
    • Question: How easy it to wipe while sitting?

      Answer: It is easier than with a regular commode. You can spread your legs wider either under the arms or lower the arms. You can scoot forward as the square seat allows you to feel more secure. You may even consider removing the backrest and placing the seat with the opening pointing backwards to allow you to reach better.
    • Question: What are the dimensions of the seat itself and the seat opening? Thank you.

      Answer: From side to side the opening is 8 inches and it is 12 inches from the back to the frame bar but the seat it's self has an opening at the front.
    • Question: How deep/thick is the seat padding? My purchase depends on this. Unstable pelvis issue.

      Answer: The padding is approximately 5 centimeters or 2 inches thick (seat & back). It offers a firm, yet comfortable cushion. Note: Chair has rubber feet, so it has to be lifted to reposition it. Besides, having wheels would make it a danger for someone with limited mobility. The unit is well made with adjustable back and legs. Other units cost significantly more and with inferior quality and appearance. I hope this helps your decision. We've had ours since July 24, 2018 -- it's a gem!
    • Question: does this commode meet criteria for minnesota nursing homes?

      Answer: This Chair is very useful and comfortable for a small to medium size person. My husband was too large to fit in it, he weighed close to 290 lbs. by the time he came home from the nursing home. That made it too late to return for refund, so be sure of your measurements.
    • Question: do arms drop straight down or swing out to the side and down? what is the locking mechanism?

      Answer: Both arms drop straight down. The lock mechanism is a spring loaded pin into a hole placed on the front of the chair. We use for a shower chair and it works great!
    • Question: Will the seat lift up for men to urinate?

      Answer: Yes, The seat pivots so it can be lifted up. Also, we removed the backrest because everything fit better without it. It is really a well designed piece of equipment. Hope this helps.
    • Question: Is this able to come apart and fold for storage?

      Answer: The adjustable leg can come out the arms fold down and the back can be removed, but the base is a u shaped metal front and back and does not fold. Good product but not easy to store.
    • Question: Why is padded commode advertised and yet the description says NON PADDED Commode? Which is it?

      Answer: It's padded - just like the picture.
