We are more than pleased with this item, for the patient who needs an elevated toilet. It lends comfort if you are small - under 175 lbs. For the larger person I am not sure the seat would stand up.
I really like this raised seat, not having to bend down so low to sit and I can get up without almost no effort. I use to get back pains before I bought this seat.
I never write reviews but felt compelled to do so for this product since I did a lot of research before buying and always appreciate others' comments. I got this seat for my 84-year-old dad after his hip replacement. I had first bought the only one I could find locally (at *****) but the opening was so small and would have required constant cleaning (I had to return that one anyway since the handle was bent and couldn't be installed properly). I'm so glad I found this one on online. This Drive model has a much bigger opening and is the same size opening as the toilet itself, so that is a huge advantage since it doesn't require constant cleaning. Another nice thing is that it installs under the toilet seat so you sit on your own toilet seat instead of the riser itself. Installation was easy and the screws are very long. It only has a tiny bit of movement side to side if you try to move it (none that causes any problems). The handles are very sturdy and at a good level. We are extremely pleased with the purchase.
This makes getting off and on the toilet so easy. I am 5'9 and most of the toilets are so low i have a hard time getting up. This is adds 4 inches to the height of the toilet and it is just great. no more sore arms and shoulders
