Which type of commode chair is best the elderly and those with mobility issues? 

A commode, aka commode chair or toilet chair, assists the elderly or handicapped with their toileting needs. There are 5 types of commodes to choose from:

  1. 3-in-1 commodes can be used next to bed, eliminating the need for the patient or elderly to move to the bathroom, but it can be used in the bathroom on the toilet set itself. The seat is raised making it easier for the patient to get on and off. It also has arms to keep the patient from falling off. It's perfect for the patient who can use the toilet in either the bedroom or bathroom.
  2. Drop-arm commodes are typically used bedside. Because the arms drop it makes it easier for the patient to get to the commode from either the bed or a wheelchair.
  3. Rolling commodes with wheels offer mobility and are perfect for use in the shower, providing the shower provides roll-in access. Many rolling shower chairs can also be used as a bedside commode or rolled over the toilet and used as a raised toilet seat. Because of the flexibility, this is a popular choice.
  4. Folding commodes have a folding frame that provides a compact size for travel and storage when not in use.
  5. Finally, heavy duty commodes are reinforced to support heavier weights and have a wider frame. We carry heavy duty commodes in all styles.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can a commode chair be used over the toilet?

Yes. 3-in-1 commodes can be used in the bedroom next to the bed or over the toilet.

What is the difference between a 3-in-1 commode and a standard commode chair?

A 3 in 1 commode can perform three different functions. It can be used as a bedside commode, a toilet riser, and a toilet safety frame.

A standard toilet typically measures 15 or 16 inches from the floor to the top of the seat. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) specifies that the height of a disabled toilet must be between 17 to 19 inches.

Yes. Medicare Part B Medical Insurance covers commode chairs as durable medical equipment (DME) when your doctor orders them for use in your home.

We recommend getting a drop-arm commode to make it easy to transfer the patient. The following link opens in a new window Here is a video that demonstrates how it is done. A video transcript follows.

Guide for Caregivers on Moving People Safely: Wheelchair to Toilet Seat Transfer

My name is Becky Jen and I am an occupational therapist. Now we will be demonstrating a transfer from a wheelchair onto a toilet with a raised toilet seat with arms.

A raised toilet seat with arms is beneficial for the home because it increases the height of the toilet and allows a patient with weakness and poor balance to transfer more safely. The patient is currently in the wheelchair in a position to complete the transfer. The first thing that you have to do is ensure that the brakes are locked on either side. The next thing (00:42) that we would like to do is to remove the leg rest so that they are not an obstacle during the transfers.

During the transfer you want to ensure that you are always on the affected side of the patient in order to guard the weak leg, and the weaker arm the patient's right side is weak so my knees will be in between their legs ready to guard the weak knee. My hands will be at their hip to support their body weight. First I will ask the patient to shift forward in the wheelchair towards the edge of the seat. Can you please shift forward not right.  When they are at the edge of the seat, ensure that their legs are tucked under the seat in a stance ready to stand up.

When they are getting ready to stand up make sure your hand is at their hips. Their arms are always on the armrests and their body. The top of their body is going to lean forward. Okay so lean forward and push up from the wheelchair. Okay and once in a standing position we will slowly turn towards their strong side. Okay so we will turn and stop. Stop when you are directly in front of the toilet.

Have the (02:36) patient step back until they feel the raised toilet seat behind their legs. Step back. Step back. Do you feel the raised toilet seat behind your leg? Wait at this point. Have the patient take off their underpants and their undergarments. When that is down, have them reach one hand at a time towards the armrest. Good hand first. Select hand on the armrest. Now the right arm. Get your body in position to lower their bottom towards the raised toilet seat, bending at your hips rather than your waist.

After you have the patient seated (03:17) comfortably and securely on the raised toilet seat, allow them privacy. Close the door and stay close by in case help is needed. When the patient is ready to return to the wheelchair, we do the same type of transfer except opposite.
