Peg,
What a great idea to help individuals with low mobility use a toilet safely and more easily than other commodes.  It can reduce the risk of falling since the highest risk of falls is the evening trip to the bathroom.  I love the built in transfer board.  I wonder if creating the commode in different colors would make it look more like a piece of furniture and less clinical for home use.  Great idea!

Hi Mary,

Your invention sounds amazing.  Can you share what kinds of materials are used to create better balance?  Thanks so much!

Hi Anya,

Thanks so much for your comment and idea. I wholeheartedly agree with you! I think that to be covered by Medicare/Medicaid we need FDA Class I device certification. Part of that process includes a history of safe use, if I recall correctly. It will be great to reach that point and help strengthen older adults in a class setting who are on Medicare/Medicaid. Thank you for sharing! With Appreciation, Cate
