Solo Toilet Lift

The Solo Toilet Lift is designed to help users get up into a standing position. At the touch of a button, the battery powered motor will raise the toilet seat and assist the user as they raise themselves to a standing position (or as they lower themselves to a sitting position). The seat raises with body’s natural standing movement.


The User

The Solo Toilet Lift helps the user retain their independence and dignity in the bathroom. At the same time the toilet lift will helps reduce effort and manual handling risks for carers who provide toileting assistance.

The product is ideal for anyone who struggles with sitting and standing and therefore has problems using a normal toilet unaided. A wide range of neurological conditions, which result in muscle weakness in the legs and arms, may be helped by using the Solo Toilet lift (examples include MS, stroke, Parkinson’s, spinal cord weakness, etc). Examples of other conditions which may give rise to the need for the toilet include arthritis, hip replacement, heart problems and obesity. However, if you are in doubt, we would strongly advice you seek advice from a health professional and we are always happy to assist with advise and an assessment.

 

The Seat

The design of the Solo Toilet Lift is modern, attractive and unobtrusive, while being shaped for comfort.

It has been created to be stable and safe as well as being strong and durable (the toilet seat is made of ABS thermoplastic polymer for impact resistance and toughness, while the structural components are made from polypropylene which give strength).


Components and Accessories

Batteries

  • The removable rechargeable battery is incorporated neatly into the frame eliminating electrical hazards in the bathroom, by avoiding trailing wires and cables.
  • The toilet lift is supplied with two batteries so that the backup can be charged away from the bathroom.
  • A battery level indicator will let you know when recharging is required.

Accessories

Models can also be specified with tilt up armrests which give additional user support.
A set of extended feet is available to raise the seat a further 6cm (2.5").


Installation

Installation is straightforward and generally does not require a specialist:

  • First, the existing toilet seat is removed.
  • The Toilet Lift should then fit easily and compactly over the existing toilet bowl (the height can be adjust as necessary).
  • If extra security is required, the feet on the bottom of the toilet seat allow it to be fixed, (but can be removed easily for cleaning).

Using the Solo Toilet Lift

  • a simple hand control pad operates the toilet lift to raise and lower the user on the seat.
  • the seat can be stopped in any position.
  • the height can be adjusted by rotating the feet.
  • smooth, wipe clean surfaces make cleaning easy.
  • it can be used as a normal toilet seat by other members of the family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Should the Solo toilet lift be fixed to the floor?

A. If you have tendency to lean to one side and are very unsteady on your feet we recommend fixing the toilet lift to the floor (particularly if your toilet lift is fitted with armrests).

Q. How long does it take to charge the battery?

A. Using the smart charger, it takes around 5 hours to fully charge a flat battery. 

Q. How often do I need to charge the battery?

A. The number of ‘lifts’ from a full battery charge will depend on a number of factors, including the weight of the user, the age of the battery and the number of times the battery has been charged over its lifetime. As an approximate guide, a new, fully charged battery pack will manage approximately 80 lifts (up and down) for a 130kg (20.5 stone) user.

Q. How should I clean my Solo toilet lift?

A. Raise the toilet seat to its maximum height or pull the toilet lift away from the toilet to gain best access to clean the toilet lift.

Use mild, non-abrasive bathroom cleaners. If the toilet lift requires disinfection, a soft cloth can be used to wipe down surfaces with an antibacterial cleaning agent (as you would for other domestic surfaces, such as baths and washbasins).  Afterwards, wipe over with a damp cloth and then dry with a dry cloth.

The toilet lift should only be cleaned by hand.
