Tips and tricks – The Stand Aid

Here’s a solution to a delicate problem: the Stand Aid PTA, or power-toilet assist. Several of our members have raved to us about this “life-changing invention” that restores independence and dignity to those whose weakening muscles make it challenging to rise from a toilet seat after answering nature’s call. 

According to the company’s website, “The PTA will simply raise your toilet seat up to 13″ above your existing toilet height. It is powered by a 12 volt rechargeable battery and will lift up to 400 pounds. The beauty of the PTA is its simplicity and effectiveness. It attaches to your toilet with no modification. Professional installation is not needed and unit ships via UPS fully assembled. The arm rests are strong enough to push against yet will also flip out of the way for easy transfers to a wheelchair.”

One of our members called this device “invaluable.” He said, it’s “a bit expensive but the solution to a bad problem. I can vouch for the reliability and have three of them.”
