My 92 year old Dad really likes the toilet seat riser. The side handles help him so much to stand up. The higher toilet seat makes it easier for him to get up also.

Just What I Needed and Arrived Right On Time!
This toilet seat riser was just want I needed for my 90 YO Dad's visit to my home. It was easy to install, and it's been easy to clean. I really liked that I could use my existing toilet seat with it as that assured me that the seat would be comfortable. My Dad said it is working very well for him. Glad I found this product and would recommend to anyone needing to temporarily raise toilet seating for elderly and/or injured persons. I bought directly from Vive.

The most appreciated purchase…
…is this seat (and the company that got it to me). Our Koehler elongated toilets with soft close lid were new in 2018. We had to purchase a new $10 seat to line up the holes and be able to have a seat and lid on top of the riser. A small glitch as I just had to use the toilet without a seat and a lid for 2 days until husband got new seat. It’s best to take the seat with you to the store to compare size since there are multiple variables out there.
Very thankful for this company: online ordering was open until 9pm so I was able to have questions answered, ask to have it shipped from the closest warehouse in PA, place and pay for the order. It arrived before the promised date and was in place before my total hip replacement. No other company would have delivered that quickly.
I had earlier bought Vive’s leg lifter (Amazon $24.99) before I knew I could order direct from Vive. Worth every cent of the extra $15 over the limp and floppy $10 models on Amazon. Use it multiple times day and night; this is NOT the item you want to save a few dollars on.
So Happy Healing! Buy what you need direct from Vive for discounted pricing, fast delivery and great customer service! And if you think you don’t need a riser WITH side bars, please think again. You really do.

My husband is disabled and would sometimes fall getting on or off the toilet as he doesn't have much strength in his legs. This seat has made all the difference. Just make sure you have the bolt through seat to go with it. My son and I found one at Home Depot.
