Big John toilet seats are heavy duty toilet seats that can withstand weight up to 1200 pounds. Unlike traditional toilet seats that offer three inches of contact surface, the Big John oversized toilet seat provides 5 inches of contact surface, making it more stable and supportive. Its hinges are very strong and the large size toilet seat features non-slip toilet seat bumpers on the bottom. The material is thicker than traditional toilet seats and resists stains. The extra large toilet seat is ideal for those that are larger framed, those with limited mobility, or physically impaired.
Another helpful product for those with limited mobility is a Patient Transfer Board. This is a wooden or plastic slide board for transferring patients to and from a wheelchair to the bed, car, or chair. These mobility transfer aids are available with cut-outs for the patient to hold on to while being transferred. The wood transfer board is lightweight, and the smooth surface makes it easy to slide under patients to before lifting them. We have a bariatric transfer board available that can withstand weight of up to 650 pounds.
If you are unable to bathe traditionally, Express Medical Supply carries a wide variety of No Rinse Bath Wipes. These antimicrobial wipes provide a quick and convenient cleansing experience for those with limited mobility. The alcohol free wipes contain aloe and lanolin to moisturize and soothe the skin. We carry flushable moist wipes as well as disposable dry washcloths to suit your needs. They act as a waterless bath and are ideal to use in bed or while traveling.
Bathrooms are a common place for falls and accidents to happen. Barthoom Safety Grab Bars give the user something to hold onto for support while getting on and off the toilet as well as in and out of the shower. Our toilet safety rail is designed to fit round and elongated toilet seats. The toilet grab rails have padded handles, ideal for those with limited dexterity. We also sell suction grab bars for bathtubs and shower walls for a strong hold. There are indicator lights on the bar that turn green when the item is secure and red when it needs to be adjusted. Both of these bathroom safety products are easy to install.
The purpose of Bowel Maintenance is to regulate your bowel schedule to reduce discomfort. A bowel management routine can include using suppositories, an enema, or colon cleanser. Suppositories help bowel function by releasing bisacodyl into the body to quickly evacuate bowels and relieve constipation. An enema is a form of bowel cleansing using saline solution that draws water into the colon. Bowel stimulation helps fully absorb nutrients into your body and has a positive impact on your overall health.
