How to Use a Toilet Seat and Frame (HD)

October 26, 2019


If you have difficulty getting on and off
your toilet, a combined seat & frame will make this easier and safer than gripping other
bathroom furniture. In this short tutorial, we’ll show you how
to use this piece of equipment. Firstly, make sure your seat and frame are
at the correct height. To do this, sit down and measure from the
crease at the back of your knee to the floor. Add 2 inches or 50mm to this measurement. This will be your optimum height from the
top of the new seat. Make sure that when seated your feet can still make full contact with
the floor. Follow the supplier’s instructions for adjusting
and maintaining. Once you are happy with the height of the
frame, it is ready to use. Before sitting, check that the seat is properly
positioned. Stand with your back to the centre of the
seat. If you have a frame, reach out and take hold
of the handles and gently sit down. When standing up, make sure that you place
equal pressure through both handles to avoid movement. If you use a raised toilet seat or a separate
toilet frame, the principles are essentially the same. Remember to check your equipment regularly. If available, always check any instructions
provided by your supplier. Always seek assistance if you are having difficulty. Thank you for watching this video.
