Never heard of a commode chair ? Well unfortunately many have.
So what is the Purpose of one ?
A commode chair provides bathroom assistance and help especially to many seniors and people with disabilities who may require it for the following reasons:

-Due to sickness of the individual the body has been left very weak and off- balance. This makes the trips to the latrine at times very difficult and potentially dangerous. Make no mistake, the bathroom is a common place for seniors to fall and have accidents.
-Also surgery may have temporarily resulted in a person being too weak to walk to the bathroom.
-Joint problems and aging has weakened the legs, making it difficult for a senior to get on and off the toilet.
-Balance problems that make it very hard and difficult for a senior or a person with disabilities to safely maneuver and get on and off the toilet.

How will the commode chair be of assistance ??

The fact of the matter is that falls happen in the bathroom for two specific reasons: first, water and moisture around in the air can make surfaces in the latrine very unpredictable and slippery; and two, muscles that are weakened and balance problems can really have a detrimental affect in a senior’s ability to get to the bathroom and use the toilet. Commode chairs help limit the risk of an accident by making it easier to get on and off the toilet. And some actually function as a portable toilet. This seems to minimize the number of trips to the bathroom.
