Adapters for adult toilets

Toilet heights are sometimes not suitable for people with reduced mobility or for people with lower limb weaknesses. For these cases, we recommend the use of a toilet lift. It is a platform that, after a simple installation process, will allow you to raise the height of the toilet. This will eliminate the discomfort and pain of having to bend down every time you want to use the toilet.

If you have a lack of balance or strength, we recommend the use of a shower grab bar. These are support bars that, once installed, will serve as a point of support for standing, getting in and out of the shower, or getting up once you are seated on the toilet. Therefore, their use prevents possible domestic accidents.
