Many people find it difficult to stand up from a sitting position and need assistance with raising or lowering themselves. This can be particularly distressing and difficult when getting on and off the toilet.
Using a two buttoned hand control the LIFT SEAT Toilet Raiser can slowly and smoothly lower the user to a sitting position over the toilet and raise them back up to their feet. Like a riser-recliner chair, it has a “sit to stand” motion which engages the body’s major muscle groups in the correct sequence – the most efficient way to raise people to their feet.
The Lift Seat Toilet Raiser gives back freedom to use the toilet independently, delaying help from carers and reducing the number of assistants required. The Lift Seat also reduces the risk of falling or getting stuck while getting on or off the toilet.
The steel frame is built to be both very strong and compact, so the Lift Seat will fit in even the smallest bathroom and over every type of toilet.
Every Lift Seat is supplied with 4 self-levelling feet which can, if necessary, be fitted to the corners of the frame, to compensate for an uneven floor. With lots of possible adjustment the Lift Seat set at a height that best suits the user’s needs.
Lift Seat with optional Commode
All Lift Seats purchased include 2 batteries, meaning you can have one to use and a spare for charging, so that a functioning battery is always available. The LIFT SEAT also comes standardly with a cable for hard wiring into a fused spur, or be hard wired into a shower toilet (eg Geberit, Clos-O-Mat or Bio Bidet).
The simple 2 button handheld unit gives the user control of the LIFT SEAT as it lowers or raises the user. If needed, a large-buttoned hand control is also available, for instance for users with impaired hand strength or visual problems.
Flat Transfer Seat
Smooth, rounded edges make transferring easy and comfortable.
The LIFT SEAT also has the advantage of being converted for commode use (commode bucket sold separately). This unique feature allows the LIFT SEAT to be used close to the bed or anywhere in the house.
The Bariatric LIFT SEAT Toilet Raiser looks like the standard model except that it is 13cm (5”) wider. It functions works in the same way and has a safe working load up to 203kg (23 stone).

Yes. It will be fully functional when it arrives, with no extras needed. It also includes 2 x batteries and a cable to hard wire if you happen to need it.
The compact design should fit over all toilets, including standard oval shaped ones seen in most houses and all designs including art deco, Victorian and modern.
Almost certainly not. The design of the LIFT SEAT means all its working parts are under the toilet seat, avoiding such structures.
We recommend applying a silicon spray to the joints of the arms to keep them lubricated.
There are no specific requirements – just use normal bathroom cleaning products.
A. If you have a long-term medical condition you do not need to pay VAT on most products that we sell. We can advise you this and help you with the simple paperwork.
Conditions such as Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM), Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and others can cause problems standing due to quadriceps muscles becoming weaker, which are involved in straightening the knees. This means that before standing up, taking their own weight, users with these conditions need to lock their knees before elevating themselves to a standing position. The VERTICA Toilet Lifter rises high but most importantly with a vertical lift with no tilt at any point in its movement, making it much easier to lock the knees.
