Electric Toilet Lifts
- Solo Toilet Lift / Raiser - Without Arms Item Code: MS14822FREE ShippingSolo Toilet Lift / Raiser - Without ArmsThe Solo Toilet Lift is a new step in the concept of toileting aids. Both attractive and well designed, it is discreet as well as effective in assisting the user to maintain independence in the bathroom. The product is ideal for anyone who struggles lifting themselves on to and off a toilet seat. A simple hand control pad operates the toilet lift to gently lower and raise the user. Rechargeable batteries are used to eliminate electrical hazards in the bathroom. The rechargable battery is incorporated neatly into the frame so eliminates the risk of trailing the wires and cables. A standard toilet lift is supplied with two batteries so that the backup can always be left on charge outside the bathroom. Installation is straight forward - often all that's needed is to remove the toilet seat and adjust the height to suit. Use of feet on the bottom of the toilet seat allows the product to be locked down for extra secuity, but can be removed easily for cleaning. Stable sturdy and modern, the Solo Toilet Lift is shaped for maximum comfort and is easy to clean. The solo is also available with arm supports which can be raised up to facilitate side transfer. An easy to operate switching system is built in the arms along with a battery status monitoring system.SpecificationsOverall width: 612mm (24")Overall width with arms: 710mm (28")Bowl clearance width: 390mm (15¼")Minimum height: 442mm (17¼)Depth Front to back: 520mm (20½")Hand Control: 130 x 55 x 18mm (5 x 2¼ x ¾)Bowl Height: 380-430mm (15-17")Feet Adjustment: 65mm (2½")Max User Weight: 160Kgs (25St)£1,368.49 with VAT Relief
