Description

Raz Mobile Shower Commode Chairs — Designed and manufactured to the highest standards of the discerning healthcare professional.

The Raz-CAT has all of the features of our Raz-AT but in a more compact size. For pediatrics, adolescents or smaller adults, the Raz-CAT provides a fit that is better suited to physically smaller clients.

  • The base and seat frames retain the 18” width of the Raz-AT so that the chair can still be positioned over a toilet.
  • The base frame has been shorted by 3”, which makes the chair more maneuverable.
  • The seat frame depth has been reduced and a depth-adjustable back offers depths from 12” to 15” (to front of frame) or up to 17” with the front of the seat overhanging the seat frame.
  • The standard seat has an elongated aperture that works with seat depths from 12” to 15”.
  • Custom seats are available.
  • The depth-adjustable back provides growth capability, an essential component for pediatrics.
  • Back frames can be ordered in widths 14”, 16” and 18”.
  • Available back heights are 15” and 18”.

Why should you use a shower chair?

Shower chairs are very beneficial if you are disabled and need help getting around and using the bathroom. Especially if you’re not steady on your feet, a slippy floor can be a nightmare. Shower chairs give you something to sit on to keep you safe and supported if you’re washing or using the toilet. Shower chairs also give you a chance to take care of yourself and maintain good hygiene. You can use the toilet, wash and shower with ease.

If independence is a concern, then you might choose a self-propelled shower chair if you are strong enough to push yourself around. Self-propelled shower chairs give you independence and the ability to move around your bathroom with no hassle. They’re also particularly versatile pieces of equipment because shower chairs can be doubled up as commodes. Many models have an aperture that allows for a removable commode pan to be fitted.

Bariatric commodes

There are numerous models of commodes which are explicitly designed for bariatric individuals. The term bariatric refers to severely overweight people to the extent that their day-to-day behaviour is inhibited. Bariatric commodes are heavy-duty bedside commodes for larger individuals, supporting anywhere from 375 lb to as much as 1500 lb, depending on the model.

In comparison, standard bedside commodes will generally support a person’s weight up to 300 – 350 lb, but you should always check, as some folding models will only support a maximum of 250lb. While not designed as a wheelchair, it does have small flip-down wheels, which enable it to be positioned as required before use.
