What Is a Drop-Arm Commode?

A commode is a toilet chair designed for seniors and the handicapped who have difficulty standing up or walking to the bathroom due to mobility, balance and strength issues including seniors, people with disabilities, and those recovering from surgery or injury. Because the commode can be placed anywhere, is is also especially useful for those who have difficulty navigating the narrow and confined space of a standard bathroom.

What makes a drop-arm commode unique are its easy-to-use drop arms that do just what they sound like they do, drop out of the way and allow for safe and convenient lateral transfers from a wheelchair or bed. 

Most drop-arm commodes are height adjustable and may include a padded seat, elongated seat or wide seating surface. Extra wide, heavy duty and bariatric drop-arm commodes offer additional strength and comfort with a larger seating and/or seating surface area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does Medicare cover the cost of drop-arm commodes?

A: Yes. No. Maybe. Medicare provides coverage for all necessary commode chairs including drop arm commodes which are considered Durable Medical Equipment (DME). The key word there is "necessary," as in "medically necessary." Therein lies the challenge. Read this post by an occupational therapist who documents his efforts to get a drop-arm commode covered for his patient. He did it, but it was not easy. Like he did, you may need a caregiver to advocate for you to get the letter of recommendation from your doctor to prove medical necessity. 

Q: What are the benefits of using a drop-arm commode?

A: The main benefit of a drop-arm commode is that it is easier to get in and out of than a standard commode chair. It provides added support and comfort, as well as increased safety and stability. 

Q: Are there any special considerations when using a drop-arm commode?

A: Yes, it is important to ensure that the arm rest is properly secured in the upright position before transferring into or out of the chair. Additionally, it is important to ensure that the arm rest is locked in place when the user is seated in the chair.

Q: How do I know if a drop-arm commode is right for me?

A: The best way to determine if a drop-arm commode is right for you is to speak with a healthcare professional. They can help to assess your individual needs and determine which type of commode chair is best suited for your needs. We provide live chat here for you to speak directly to an agent during work hours. 

Q: You have a lot of drop-arm commodes. How do I know which one is right for me? 

A: One thing you should consider is seat height. How high is the bed or wheelchair you'll be transferring from? They should be close to the same height. Weight capacity is another consideration. If you're particularly heavy, you'll want to get a bariatric commode. Some like padded seats. That's another option. Others are just personal preference. Easiest way to see your options is to use our filter on this page. We've put what the most important considerations are there. If you're undecided, reach out to use by phone or live chat. We'll help you decide.
