Sitting down and getting up easily with help from a tall toilet

By Eddie In Toilet
Toss those ugly hard to clean toilet seat risers! For tall people with bad knees, hips, etc. here is a real toilet that is 21 inches high to the seat

Sitting down and getting up from a tall toilet can be made easier with a few simple techniques. Whether you’re using a comfort height toilet or have adapted your existing toilet, here are some tips:

  1. Proper Positioning:
    • Stand facing the toilet with your feet shoulder-width apart.
    • Back up until you feel the toilet seat against the back of your legs.
  2. Sitting Down:
    • Slowly lower yourself onto the seat.
    • Use your armrests or grab bars (if available) for support.
    • Keep your feet flat on the floor and your knees at a right angle.
  3. Getting Up:
    • Place your hands on the armrests or grab bars.
    • Push up using your leg muscles, not just your arms.
    • Keep your back straight and avoid leaning forward.

Use a Step Stool:

  • If needed, place a step stool around the base of the toilet to elevate your feet slightly. This can mimic a squatting position and make it easier to stand up.

Remember, practice makes perfect! Over time, you’ll find the technique that works best for you. And if you’re considering a new toilet, explore options like the Convenient Height 20-Inch Extra Tall Toilet, which is designed specifically for ease of use and comfort.

Convenient Height – 1st Tallest Toilet For The Elderly

If you are about 5 ft 10 ins in height, the position of the seat on this Convenient Height toilet is about an inch below your knee cap. Without exerting too much of your thigh muscle, you will find sitting down and getting up from the seat very easy. Your lower leg should be at a right angle (90 degrees) to your upper leg at that height.
