What Is A Commode?
The word commode is often used as a synonym for toilet. More often, however, people will use the term when looking for a raised toilet seat that can help make it safer and easier for people to sit down and stand up when using the bathroom. There are many different types of commodes to choose from. Some you can set directly on a traditional toilet so that you will have a raised set for added comfort. Others are built onto a frame that can be placed over a toilet. The frame will provide you with armbars that will help you to set yourself down safely and get back up again when done.
How To Install A Commode
The way to install a commode will depend on the type that you get. For a basic commode, you simply place it onto your existing toilet seat and that is all you have to do. For the options that are built into a frame, you set the entire frame over the toilet seat. Some of these are made so that they can fold up, in which case you would need to make sure they are fully unfolded before setting them in place. There are also commodes that are permanently installed onto your toilet. These are generally installed in place of a traditional toilet seat and will be bolted in place using the standard toilet seat holes.
How To Use A Commode
Once installed, using a commode is easy and will make going to the bathroom safer for many people. Many commodes will have support arms on either side that you can grip onto so you can slowly and safely lower yourself down onto the toilet and pull yourself back up again. There are also commodes that you can use without a toilet, in which case you have it placed under you when you need to go to the bathroom. This option will often include a commode liner to make cleaning up quick and easy.

How Do You Use a Commode Toilet Stool With a Toilet Seat?
To use or help someone use a commode, have these items nearby: disposable gloves, toilet paper or cleansing wipes, warm water, a washcloth, a gentle body wash and a towel. Then, follow these steps:
Place the commode beside the bed or on the bathroom toilet.
Check to ensure the receptacle is securely under the seat, and insert a commode toilet seat cover.
If one is available and necessary, fasten the seatbelt for added safety.
When the person has finished using the commode, put on disposable gloves, and help them stand up.
If they need help cleaning up, wipe their bottom with toilet paper, and wash their bottom with the washcloth, body wash and warm water. Towel dry gently, and help them wash and dry their hands. After helping the person back to their bed or seat, remove and clean the container, and throw away your gloves.
How Do You Measure a Toilet Seat?
Determining the ideal height for your raised toilet seat helps you ensure a comfortable posture for sitting and rising. First, measure the distance from the floor to just above the back of the knee. Next, measure the toilet seat's current height from the floor upwards. Subtract the second figure from the first to arrive at the ideal height for your raised toilet seat.
Raised toilet seats typically come in three standard sizes of 2, 4 and 6 inches. After finding the best height for your seat, you'll need to select a style. A regular raised seat gives just a bit of elevation for support when sitting or standing. Padded seats and arms offer extra comfort for those with arthritis or who are prone to pressure sores.
