|A true padded toilet seat cushion for paraplegics is finally here|
NOTES FROM GARY 3.20.09 -
After using this seat for 3 weeks I have to add some more information.
1. I now use only one of the cushions (Soft). the Firm is great for the 'bottom' layer if you need the added height two cushions give. I still believe that these are the best padded cushions available. If know of a better one please contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Easy to keep clean using a 'Baby Wipe' or other non-abrasive cleaning method, but, "Clean it after every use!"
|The years long search for that
'right' padded toilet seat is over for at least one paraplegic, that
would be me. I have been wheeling for dozens of years, and until now, I have never found
that 'right' toilet seat cushion that actually works, is comfortable, and helps keep
them pressures sores at bay! I have researched, contacted dozens of medical
supply businesses, even discussed this problem with a design firm, and none of them, ever, had anything that even resembles this
unit. I rolled upon this site and bought 2 cushions that same day!
The Comfort Rise is a 1.25 inch thick contoured raised padded toilet seat cover.
Available in 8 different colors and 3 different densities. Fits on both standard and elongated toilets seats and features a front cutout opening for access. Ultra soft, soft and firm foam densities give you more options for your needs.

I was using two cushions to get the height that I need and a more substantial 'bottom' seat (I weigh 170 lbs) I found that with using only one, my feet were better placed on the floor. I recommend buying two of these if you need the added height of the seat level.
This foam toilet seat cushion was designed and developed by Chris Kohler, a paraplegic, and are manufactured in the USA.
