Trying to find a Bariatric bedside commode that is not only heavy duty, but also features an extra wide seat can be exhausting. That's without even factoring in the idea of a model with drop down arms, which by far are the best option for heavy and obese people.
Well, look no further. As this 550 pound capacity extra strong MedEase™ commode has all the right features and the reinforced framework that is demanded by larger sized people.
The most critical factor to consider when buying a Bariatric commode is the width of the seat and the strength of the frame. Without these two components you are basically throwing your money down the toilet.
Not only is being larger in size a challenge, but trying to fit on a narrow chair between the arms is near impossible.
To make matters worse, when you go to sit down on these narrow chairs with lift-able seats, your skin gets pinched and oh boy does it hurt.
The Good News Is...
From now on, you don't have to put up with narrow seats pinching your delicate skin because the MedEase™ features one of the widest, if not the widest seats in the business. guess what, it's not lift-able so no more pinching your skin, ever!
The distance between the arms is a full 24.8" wide. This alone is 5-6 inches wider than standard commodes while the seat is a further 8-12 inches wider than commodes with lift-able seats.
The MedEase™ was designed to handle big and heavy people with the primary focus being on the strength and integrity of the frame.
Unlike other substandard frames, the MedEase™ is constructed using durable steel which is not only thicker, but designed with a wider diameter for greater strength.
Reinforced with 'stress' reducing support bars midway up the sides of the frame to provide additional support and durability. The unique design of this construction is what enables it to hold Bariatric people up to 550 Lbs.
As a result of the materials used during construction, the Bariatric commode weighs 20.5 pounds. While a little heavier than others on the market, this is a testament to the thickness and heavy-duty rating of the steel frame.
One way to tell if a commode is built strong and sturdy is to simply compare how heavy each model is. Heavy-duty commodes will weigh more as a result of the quality steel used.
Another critical component for a heavy person when choosing a bedside commode chair is the ability to transfer from the bed, or other relevant surface onto the commode safely.
When commodes have fixed arms, the only way to transfer onto the commode is front facing or with the help of 2 assistants. This is not ideal for the very large people.
So the innovative creation behind the drop down arms of the MedEase™ allows users of any size to naturally slide sideways onto the wide durable seat.
How To Activate The Drop Down Arms
The best part about taking down the arms to allow for an easy transfer onto the chair is that you don't need and tools. It is as simply as pulling the pin from behind the front arms.
This releases the arms and they swing in a downward motion. They come to a stop on the rubber protected stoppers to avoid scratching and denting the steel.
At this position, it is easy for the person sitting in the chair to raise the arms again as they snap back into position. Alternatively, you can leave the arms down so they never interfere with your body.
When buying a commode for the bedside or for a tall person, having the ability to adjust the height accurately is of extreme importance.
Having a seat with an increased height allows you to set the seat to be closer to the height of the bed as well as making taller people sit more comfortably in the chair.
The Heavy-Duty MedEase™ commode can be adjusted to 5 height levels at 1-inch increments from 19.8"-23.8". Making it an appropriate and viable option for the big and tall people.
