A Unique Concept in Toilet Seat Risers
Father and Son, Nigel and Michael Gillingham, started out owning and operating a residential care home in Scotland and a disabled care center in Southern England.
As Owner/Operators they experienced firsthand the issues of stability, sterilizing, and visibility that the available toilet seat risers had for their clients.
- Poorly fitting seat risers: With small holes making them uncomfortable and difficult to clean one's self afterwards.
- Fixed seat risers: Seats with handles are difficult to transport, and harder to remove and clean.
- Wobbly seat risers: Causing stability problems and embarasment for visitors and owners alike.
Necessity is the Mother of Invention
Mrs Gillingham insisted that Nigel, her husband and Michael, her son could come up with something better.
When Nigel's wife went through a hip operation she was forced to make due with the plastic toilet toper that masquerades as a toilet seat riser.
Then when they retired because of their own disabilities,they encountered the same issues as their clients, in a more personal form.
Nigel's wife had a few requests for this new Toilet Seat Riser!
- It had to be easy to remove and clean!
- It had to be of a Sanatary material!
- It needed to blend in with the existing toilet! She was tired of running to hide the toilet seat riser from guests.
- AND it needed to be stable, no more sitting down on the toilet only to wonder if you would fall off at any second!
