Types of Bariatric Commodes
Standard Heavy-Duty Commode
Standard HD commodes are designed for durability, with a wide seat for extra comfort and reinforced parts for higher maximum weight capacity. They have four sturdy legs and often come with armrests that help the user sit and stand. Drive Medical's Large Heavy Duty Drop Arm Commode is a great option.
Roll-in Heavy Duty Shower Chair
Roll-in heavy duty shower chairs have all of the benefits of a standard commode while also serving as a great transfer device. The addition of a wheel on each leg allows caregivers to transfer patients from the bed to the bathroom. This option can also be used as a shower chair. One of our most popular roll-in options is the ShowerBuddy Roll-in Shower Chair.
