Toilet raisers are devices that are designed to raise the height of your toilet so it is easier for you to get on or off the toilet if you have problems moving from a standing to sitting position.
There are two types of toiler raisers:
Temporary toilet raisers – these are separate, semi-portable devices (similar to raised toilet seats) that fit on top of the toilet. They usually have handles to assist you getting on and off the toilet.
Permanent toilet raisers – these are fixed under the base of the toilet and raise the height of the toilet permanently.
There is no research evidence about toilet raisers but if you are unable to get on or off the toilet you may a toilet raiser helps you to use the toilet independently.
You may be able to borrow a temporary toilet raiser through a disability organisation or through your health care professionals to try out.
They can be cleaned in a similar way to your toilet using your usual antibacterial products.
Toilet raisers fit on top of your existing toilet bowl so take a up very little extra space.
The cost of toilet raisers varies according to the design and which country you live in, so it is not possible to give you an exact price range.
They can be purchased directly through the manufacturer, by phone or mail order and on the internet.

If you share the toilet you use with other people, you may need a temporary toilet raiser so it can be removed for other people’s use which could be inconvenient.
You may find it inconvenient if your needs change and you have a permanent toilet raiser fitted which is no longer suitable.
