Raising a commode
A new ensuite facility at a local hospice was naturally fitted with the latest new regulation height disabled toilet. Commercial commodes are not yet available to suit this height.
The operational height of an available commercial commode was increased by inserting spigot and socket extensions, turned and bored to a nominal 19.5mm diameter from mild steel hexagon bar. Original holes were picked up for the M6 retaining bolts.
The hospice reported on the great benefit of being able to leave a patient to a bit of privacy when it mattered most.
