Toilet seat for a large man
Alan Rayner of the Bristol panel has asked for advice on this problem. Can anyone help him solve the problem or direct him about whom he should approach?
“The client is 5′ 6" tall but otherwise big, weighing in at 17.5 stone. He is 72 years old. He is reasonably mobile but needs a raised toilet seat to help him arise. He has obtained a Mowbray seat and frame, which raises him adequately and helps further by having arm rests, but he is frustrated because the dimension of the opening in the seat is only 10" front to back, which means that when he spends a penny, by no means all of it goes into the pan. It seems a larger seat is not available.
Surely there must be many men as large as, or larger than, my client, who have this problem? If indeed it is common, perhaps we can get Mowbray involved. Otherwise I will have to learn about reshaping plastic toilet seats.
Please let me know if you know of other large men with this problem. “
