Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Dec 3, 2021

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Many individuals may benefit from their toilet seat being higher.  However, replacing a toilet can be expensive!  If you're looking for a more affordable way to raise the height of your toilet seat, check out the Toilet Seat Riser from Vive Health!

Vive's Toilet Seat Riser is an ideal solution for individuals aging in place, those with limited mobility, and more.  It adds 3.5 inches to your existing toilet seat to help reduce painful bending, twists, slips and falls.

Other features include:

Installs on both traditional toilets as well as elongated toilets
Comes with hardware to accommodate different toilet seat sizes
Easy-to-clean: simply lift the lid, seat, and riser up and out of the way for convenient, thorough cleaning
Made out of durable, split-resistant composite material
Supports up to 350 pounds
