Bedside commodes are designed to allow patients to do toileting without having to go to the bathroom. This may be due to patients unable to walk far or for convenience. Active Mobility stocks a wide range of bedside commodes for both bariatric and non-bariatric patients.
A bedside commode is a moveable toilet that doesn’t use running water. It has the appearance of a char with a toilet seat and has either a bucket or container underneath; this container can also be removed for cleaning after it has been used. It is commonly used, as its name implies, at the bedside by patients who are unable, or have difficulty, getting to their bathroom by themselves either because they don’t have the strength to do so or enough time.
