 Let's talk dirty?

Toilet seats are a fact of life.  

What are the most common problems with toilet seats for people in less than perfect health?
1)     lack of cleanliness
2)     uncomfortable against bony bottoms
3)     skin shear created while transferring
4)     pain from existing compromised skin - bed sores
5)     length of time spent sitting on toilet
6)     hard surface constricts blood and air flow
7)     bare skin against toilet seat
8)     heat from sitting on seat
9)     sweat/moisture trapped against skin
10)   lack the comfort - the EXPENSIVE OFF toilet positioning aids don't help
11)   used by more than one person - seat gets moved
12)    ¾" height eliminates patient retraining by OT; no change is perceived by patient
13)   unlike other pads -  this pad stays firmly attached to toilet seat
14)   need for product with simple maintenance
15)   toilet too low for easy transfer

The Dimensional Gel Toilet Seat Pad & Cover addresses ALL except for #15.  

It works so well because it is THIN; it's only 3/4 inch thick and ½ inch is GEL.  Thicker GEL is undesirable because it does not increase comfort - may require OT retraining - increases cost - and is a little more work to maintain.

Toilet seats manufactured and sold as "soft toilet seats" have a solid cover over foam with a hole in the bottom of the cover to allow air to escape from the foam.  This is why they make noise.  They tend to split when a heavier person sits on them repeatedly.   The solid cover creates a build up of sweat and heat.  The foam flattens and is not particularly effective as a means of softening the toilet seat.
