When is a good time to consider a dignity lift? One sign you will benefit from using our lift is when you start using a walker. The need to steady yourself when walking is an indication that you will probably also need assistance standing after using the toilet. You should also consider a dignity lift if you have trouble standing up from a seated position.
Dignity Lifts prevent falls. If your leg "falls asleep" on the toilet, it can be very difficult to keep your balance. Bathroom falls are especially dangerous because there are many hard surfaces. It is better to have a steady, safe way to stand up.
The Dignity Lift BL1 works with all toilets from bowl heights of 16 inches (early toilets are this low) all the way up to 18 inch bowl heights. The lift adjusts with its adjustable feet. The lift has an overall width of 23 7/8" and a depth of 27". The distance between the handles on the Basic Lift is 20”. The lift raises the back of the toilet seat 9 inches. Typically the lift begins at 18" and ends at 27" tall.
Installing a Dignity Lift is easy. It is as simple as removing your current toilet seat and putting the Dignity Lift BL1 in its place. The BL1 is a little heavy, so you want to make sure the installer can lift 50 pounds, but once in place, it is extremely stable and secure. If you don't think you are able to install the lift yourself, we offer White Glove Delivery as well. We also offer installation videos so you or your handyman will have no trouble installing your toilet lift.
The BL1 works using by plugging into the wall. Be sure the plug is on a GFI circuit (bathroom circuits require this to prevent shocks). If you have a plug near your toilet, maybe one you use for a blow dryer or shaver, that will work. Do not run an extension cord from a different room to power your Dignity Lift. Outlets outside the bathroom are not safe for applications that are close to water. If you don't have good access at the toilet to electricity, you should consider our Deluxe Toilet Lift - DL1 it has a rechargeable battery that only needs to be charged once per month.
