Recovering From Surgery: Individuals who are bedridden or recovering from surgery or injury can benefit from a bedside commode. The medical commode allows individuals to easily slide into the toilet from their bed, with limited or no assistance.
Individuals in Wheelchairs: Drop arm commodes are an aid for those in wheelchairs. With the ability to collapse one arm, an individual can easily slide into the commode without assistance from another.
Bedside urinals allow individuals to relieve themselves without stepping out of bed. They are designed to be lightweight and to minimize stillage.
Elevated Toilet Seats
Having to sit on a hard and low toilet seat every time you use the bathroom may be distressing. That is especially the case for individuals who suffer from immobility, injury, or lack of balance. Elevated toilet seats can add up to 5 inches of height to make it easier for an individual to sit comfortably on the toilet.
Bed pans are used to collect urine or feces. They are shaped to fit under a person lying or sitting in bed. They can be made of plastic or metal, and some can be used with liners to prevent splashing and to make cleaning easier
