The SedMed Toilet Lift Assist is a mobility product for the toilet. The product helps people who might struggle with getting on / off the toilet by slowly lowering users down and providing a natural, but effective boost to lift up to 80% of their body weight in raising off the toilet. The SedMed uses no electricity!
Yes, the SedMed is a very simple product. You simply sit against the seat, it slowly lowers you down, locks for safety, and when you are ready to get up, you pull the arm lever back to unlock it and it will help you stand up. Individuals who require extensive care, have cognitive issues/impairments, have extreme fall/balance risk, or are otherwise high risk should use the product with the support of someone else or not at all.
The product uses a gas spring (same thing commonly found porch screen doors, car trunks, and more) that is mechanically optimized with our patent-pending design to effectively raise and lower the body weight of individuals. There is no electricity required
Safety is at the core SedMed's design - some of our features:
The sturdy and stable design of the SedMed is easily mounted on the toilet, creating a natural extension rather than a stand alone and potentially wobbly product. The product's core innovation lies in its gas spring selection and linkage lift system design, which is a self-powered lifting and lowering system that is adjustable to a user's weight/comfort.
The function is to assist individuals with limited mobility or physical disabilities to safely and comfortably use the toilet. It is designed to raise and lower the user, providing greater accessibility and independence. The product aims to improve hygiene, reduce strain on caregivers, enhance privacy/independence, and improve overall quality of life
The product is accessible to individuals with diverse mobility needs or disabilities, requiring adequate force to lower themselves and the ability to operate the release handle. Individuals who require extensive care, have cognitive issues/impairments, have extreme fall/balance risk, or are otherwise high risk should use the product with the support of someone else or not at all.
The SedMed is versatile for healthcare facilities and home use, as long as the planned bathroom locations meet the space and toilet requirements. Almost all healthcare facility bathrooms are compatible with the SedMed. See our compatibility guide for further details.
Most bathrooms are compatible with the SedMed, especially if they are ADA or handicapped compliant. However, if you're unsure, refer to our bathroom compatibility guide for further assistance.
The SedMed is compatible with most toilets, including all elongated toilets. While most round toilets are also compatible, it is recommended to consult the SedMed toilet compatibility guide for confirmation. In rare cases, toilets with excessive flair up or around the tank may hinder the product's mounting capability.
The SedMed is installed by directly mounting it on the toilet. To do this, remove the toilet seat by unscrewing the two bolts in the hinge holes. The SedMed has hole slots in the back that attaches to these hinge holes, exactly like how the toilet seat is attached.
The product features a minimalist design that easily fits into most bathrooms. The arm opposite the locking mechanism, can be removed if need be. The product does not come into contact with the floor at any point.
SedMed toilet lift does not require significant modifications to your bathroom. Depending on the size and space around your toilet, you may need to move non-permanent objects such as toilet roll holders. SedMed mounts directly onto the toilet, so floor objects like rugs and carpets will not interfere.
Professional installation is not required for SedMed.
The product does not require maintenance.
The product can be cleaned like any other toilet or toilet product is cleaned. It is compatible with nearly all traditional bathroom cleaning products.
Yes, the product can be used by multiple individuals. If the individuals have significantly different weights or assist needs, the weight might need to be adjusted prior to each toileting use. Adjusting the wait only takes a few seconds, but the product is best suited for use by a limited number of people. The product can also stay in the down or seated position if desired.
Not suitable for children and individuals who require extensive care, have cognitive issues/impairments, have extreme fall/balance risk, or are otherwise high risk should use the product with the support of someone else or not at all.
The product accommodates a weight range of 75 to 275 pounds
The speed of the SedMed lift depends on the user's mobility and effort. As SedMed provides a natural motion, the lift moves at the user's own pace. Users can get on and off the toilet in < 5 seconds going down and up.
