It is superior to many toilet lifts and boasts a variety of features and benefits. 

How a Toilet Incline Lift Works

This toilet lift- lifts the individual on and off the toilet, allowing them the privacy, independence, and dignity they deserve while using the bathroom.

The lift combines the functionality of a heavy-duty commode with a lift chair. It gently lifts and lowers individuals on to and off of the toilet in 15-20 seconds and lifts/lowers to their natural body movement for ultimate stability. This toilet provides an easy-to-use solution for elderly people or any disabled person who needs assistance and additional safety measures in the bathroom.          

This toilet lift has a handheld control for raising and lowering the lift seat, which makes it easy to use for both the individual or their caregiver to operate. Two models of the lift are available: A corded power model and a battery powered model. The battery powered unit comes in handy in the event of a power outage. Just be sure to keep the battery charged.

Installation

The toilet incline lift comes with an easy-to-understand and follow instruction manual and a step-by-step installation video can be followed for a helpful visual guide while installing the unit. If you are not mechanically inclined or prefer to have the toilet lift installed by a professional, you can call a handyman to install the toilet lift.

The lift attaches directly to your toilet bowl after removing the existing toilet seat, and a standard or elongated seat can be selected when ordering the unit to match the style of the existing seat that will be replaced with the TILT seat. Again, the ability to take yourself to the bathroom is huge and is centered around independence and dignity, two things every person needs.
