What to consider when buying an accessible toilet?
Bathroom size and toilet bowl size: this is an important factor to consider as a toilet is a permanent fixture so invest in one that will actually enhance the quality of your life and encourage movement rather than creating hindrances. The smaller the bathroom, the smaller the toilet bowl size has to be. For instance, round or square toilet bowl style would be better for smaller bathrooms rather than oval or elongated shapes.
User Weight Capacity: Not all toilet bowls are created the same, with varying styles, shapes and ways in which these are mounted hence different toilet bowls will have different weight accommodation capacity.
Accessible Toilet Height – is another important factor to ensure the person who would need to use is, isn’t actually having to exert extra pressure on their joints and muscles to simply get on and off the toilet. An accessible toilet seat should ease this process for persons with disability or mobility issues.
Toilet flush location: this is important to ensure a user has easy access rather than needing additional support or aids to reach the flush.
Cleaning: for users with limited movement to those that suffer from muscle aches and pains, simple tasks like cleaning or bending can be challenging so consider investing in a toilet bowl that may be wall-mounted thus making it easier to clean the floor around the toilet.
