Raised toilet seats go by many names, including toilet booster seats, elevated toilet seats, or raised toilets. They look a bit odd to most people. Some might think that they are looking at a pregnant commode. These medical toilet seats support users who have a disability affecting their lower limbs. Their mobility impairment may only be temporary, such as someone recovering from an injury or surgery. The disability may be more long-term, such as aging or arthritis. Sometimes it may be more severe like Buerger's disease, claudication, spastic paraplegia, posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, lumbar spinal stenosis, or a host of other illnesses that affect mobility. They are also often used by wheelchair users as a long-term solution to safely transition from their wheelchair onto the stool and back again.
