Did you know that the mobility equipment most requested for aide and independence is an over toilet chair?

It's any wonder when toilets are too low for the average Australian.

"When we have any issues with the lower back, hips or knees or any muscle weakness, it is the action of getting on or off the toilet that is really difficult," said Janice Ellson, founder of Elan Medical Supplies.

"This then uses far more effort and energy I am sure we would rather use on a pleasurable activity."

The over toilet chair is one of many mobility products that Elan Medical Supplies sells and/or rents out from it's Beenleigh and Gold Coast stores with the option of delivery and install.

The Elan team will be sure to ask questions about the purchase of items that may be required as they could be available at no cost through Queensland Health," Janice said.

"Our very knowledgeable team have regular training and many have been with us for well over ten years.

"We love to remind you or advise you on services you may be eligible for."

The majority of business is for hire of mobility equipment and sales include a one week trial of which the rent is deducted from the price if the customer decides to purchase.

No product is inferior. For example, an over toilet chair must be made out of aluminium to avoid rust and should have a splash guard and a lid.

"Your toilet seat and lid is removed and replaced with a height adjustable chair to raise the seat to a comfortable height for you," said Janice.

"While you stand, have someone measure from the back of your knees to the bottom of your heel so you then know what height your over toilet chair should be set at for more comfortable transfers for an essential part of life."

During delivery, staff will install and adjust the equipment to individual measurements as well as explain how to use the items.

Elan Medical supplies has been in service for 25 years and believes in old fashioned service, offering additional in-home repair and maintenance to customers.

"We understand how a piece of equipment can enhance your independence and increase your safety while you live at home forever," Janice said.
