The Toilet Riser is much higher than the normal toilet seat which gives a mechanical advantage to a person's hips and knees. It makes it easier for someone to get on and off the toilet if they have stiffness or weakness in muscles as a result of arthritis. The Toilet Riser slides over your existing toilet and comes with a soft-close seat, which makes it incredibly easy to remove and clean.
The Toilet Riser Slides forward to gain access to the toilet pan for cleaning. Wipe around the pan, cistern, Toilet Riser and seat with a soft damp cloth. Do not use scouring powder, scouring pads or abrasive cloths as these may scratch the surface of the Toilet Riser.
The Toilet Riser and seat should be cleaned using warm soapy water. The hinges should be cleaned using soap or a mild detergent. After cleaning the hinges should be rinsed with clean water and dried. Never use bleach, concentrated cleaners or acids on the hinges as this will cause discolouration and pitting. Take care not to splash the hinges when using bleach in the toilet bowl.

Our packaging has been designed to help you remove the product from the box by placing on its side and easily sliding out of the box.

All our products are tested by experts and people with arthritis
All our profits go back into the fight against arthritis.
After years of researching and getting to know stories of people like Nimesh; we took it as a task to design and develop a stylish, modern and ergonomic solution that can fit into a contemporary bathroom easily and give them back their independence with elegance.
During the product's conceptual stages we developed a wide range of ideas and approaches. Because of pain or pressure in the knees, hips and lower back it means that bending down and getting up again with arthritis can be difficult. One of the most suitable designs we came up with is the Toilet Riser, which is a universal solution that fits most toilets and looks good in people’s bathrooms.
Arthr's ChangeMakers are an active community of passionate, like-minded people who want to change the face of arthritis forever.
