I bought this for my husband as he has lost most all muscle function in his legs. I had to help him off the toilet as it was too low. This raised seat allows him to get up by himself. I can’t tell you my relief as my back was suffering. It was very easy to install, but if you need to remove the old seat and a bidet, expect to use tools and a leak here and there. Had a bit of cross threading and the plumber came to save the day. All is good now.
