Toilet risers can provide independent access to the toilet
SmartHome toilet riser
The SmartHome toilet riser is a versatile solution which provides either a vertical lift or a rise and recline lift. This needs to be set by an engineer first. It is narrow, so fits in most home bathrooms, and can give independence to users.
It removes the need for a large frame around the toilet, which improves accessibility in the bathroom, and allows more space for other family members to use it as a standard wc.
The SmartHome Toilet Riser is also designed as a lifting system for the Geberit Aquaclean shower toilet. It is suited to meet a wide variety of users’ needs, and is adapted to acute care settings, long-term care environments and private homes.
Main features of the SmartHome toilet riser
• Simple push button for manual flushing
• Easy to use remote control
• Tilt mobility function
• Nursing arms
• Mobile hoist access
• 450mm – 650mm adjustable seat height with tilting lift
• 450mm – 700mm adjustable seat height with vertical lift
New Ropox lifter
Another in the Kingkraft range of toilet risers is the Ropox lifter, which provides vertical lifting for the user.
It can easily be adjusted from a seated position, either by using the manual handle, or electrically, using a hand control. The Toilet Lifter is also available with toilet support arms if required.
Whether powered or manual, the height adjustment is from 405mm to 805mm. The hand control or manual handle can be placed on either the left or right side, as required.
