Bariatric Toilet Seat Support

The Bariatric Toilet Seat Support was developed to solve the problem of wall hung or floor mounted vitreous china toilet bowls cracking or breaking due to obese patients or customers. Toilet bowels cracking will result in an expensive replacement cost and potentially dangerous and embarrassing situations for facilities and patients or customers. The problem is most prevalent in hospitals but certainly not limited to hospitals. This product could also be used in nursing homes, medical clinics, schools and other public facilities. This apparatus can be used on standard height or ADA height toilets.

This patented Bariatric Toilet Seat Support (BTSS) was designed to slide between the toilet bowl and the toilet seat with the seat resting on the toilet support, transferring the weight to the floor through the support members. The toilet seat support will handle 700 + pounds. This unit will work on most wall hung or floor mounted toilets.

The support apparatus is fully adjustable horizontally. The four support legs have adjustable non-slip pads that sit on the floor and swivel to sit securely on uneven floors or bathrooms with floor drains near the toilet stalls. After the support is adjusted to the correct height there is a stainless steel locking nut to keep the unit set in the correct position horizontally.

The support apparatus is also adjustable vertically. The unit has two stainless steel threaded rods with rubber end caps that need to be adjusted to the wall behind the toilet. When installing the apparatus the installer will slide the apparatus over the toilet bowl until it meets the hinged bolts of the toilet seat. They will then adjust the two threaded rods until the rubber bumper rest against the wall behind the toilet, than secure the stainless steel locking nut to keep the apparatus adjusted vertically.

The toilet seat support is made of stainless steel is light weight (26lbs) and easily moved for cleaning of the BTSS unit and or the bathroom. When the unit is properly installed the locking nuts keep the unit in the same position so there is no need to readjust the unit when reinstalling after cleaning.
