What are shower commode chairs?

Shower commodes are chairs that can be used for showering and toileting. Water resistant materials make them suitable for washing routines and commode seats enable you to access a potty or the toilet.

What are the benefits of shower commode chairs?

By enabling you to wash yourself and use the toilet in one chair, shower commodes effectively reduce bathroom transfers, so your routine is made easier for both you and your carers.

What different shower commode chairs do you offer?

Static and mobile – most of our shower commodes are mobile with four strong braking wheels and a padded back, seat and armrests. However, we also offer a static shower commode chair featuring sturdy ferrules and height adjustable legs.

Tilting – tilting shower commodes can recline back to make washing easier and more comfortable. They include foot rests and arm rests, as well as curved head rests for head and neck support when the chair is tilted.

Folding – we provide a folding shower commode with a strong yet lightweight design. It folds into a compact size, so it is easy to transport and ideal for travel. Additional accessories, such as the commode pan and carry case, are available for the folding commode chair.

Accessories – we offer a range of accessories that add further support to the shower commodes, including, foot, arm and head rests. Belts, pommels and commode liners can also be bought separately.

Self-propelled or attendant controlled – attendant controlled shower commodes are designed for anyone who needs to be transported by a carer or assistant. They have four braking castor wheels and a firm handle for carers to control the chair. Self-propelled chairs have large back wheels with a push rim, so you can transport yourself in the chair.

What should I consider when choosing a shower commode chair?

Consider where you will be using the chair, whether this is at home or out and about. From static chairs that are ideal for use at home, to the folding commode chair that is perfect for travel, we have shower commodes available for a range of circumstances.

Style – as we have a variety of different styles, it is important to consider which is most suitable for your personal needs so you can use the chair safely. For example, whilst self-propelled chairs are ideal if you can steer and transport yourself, others may require an attendant controlled chair so a carer can assist them.

Accessories – be sure to consider additional accessories when choosing a shower commode chair to ensure you receive the best support from the chair.
