|Raised/High Toilet Seat for Elongated or Round Toilets|
Elevated Toilet Seats for Elderly & Arthritis Sufferers
Elevated, or raised, toilet seats like this under $25 lightweight style, fit over both elongated and round toilets without tools and setup; just peel the tabs and stick the seat for a firm seal.
If you've any knee, back or hip pain, toilets can be a real problem, as they tend to be so low to the floor, getting up can be a scary painful event, indeed. Too, if you have a surgery on the horizon, you're best to invest in a high toilet seat, lest you strain your surgery site like I did.
Having arthritis and being a disabled senior (albeit a young one!), I have a personal 'relationship' with high--or raised-- toilet seats. Here's the high toilet seat I settled on for several reasons:
- budget-friendly (yes, cheap)
- easy to apply; just peel the sticky tabs and place on toilet
- easy to clean
- higher than other elevated toilet seats (just under 5")
- scooped front (must-have for hygienic reasons)
- delivered to my door

Elevated Toilet Seat with Handles (or arms) for Elderly
Obviously, this elevated toilet seat isn't just for seniors and elderly folks, but I suggest the arm handles for us elderly with arthritis (or disabled with other physical ails) for safety reasons, alone. This raised toilet seat can be attached to your existing elongated toilet and then your pretty toilet seat with lid can go atop this high one, so you won't lose the attractiveness of your decorative seat. Too, if you'll have guests, they won't feel strange using your higher seat. The arm handles are removable in a pinch for that party you're hosting. While this raised toilet seat is a bit more money than the one I have without arms, the handles are worth the extra investment in avoiding falls. The four-rating is from Amazon (at the link under the image, above).
