A commode chair is a type of chair used by someone who needs help going to the toilet due to illness, injury or disability. A commode chair sometimes has wheels to allow easy transport to the bathroom or shower.
Many doctors and caregivers recommend getting out of bed to use the toilet, rather than a bedpan, because it can help prevent pressure points and bedsores. But rushing to get to the bathroom can increase your risk of falling.
In addition to convenience, bedside commodes provide the peace of mind of knowing that you can safely go to the bathroom as often as you need.
