10 Best Raised Toilet Seat With arms 12

The Drive Medical Raised Toilet Seat is built to fit standard and elongated toilet bowls.  That includes most toilet makes and models too.  The arms are easy to remove and adjust.  Because of this, you have flexibility in your home setup.  In the front of the seat is a knob that locks the seat into place, thus it is easy to install tool-free and is stable.  Simply remove your old seat and pop on the Drive Medical Raised Toilet Seat.

Carex Health Brands Toilet Seat Elevator

raised toilet seats with arms 22

The Carex Health Brands Toilet Seat Elevator is a true toilet seat riser.  It’s not meant to be sat on by itself.  Instead you place your old toilet seat on top of it.  This model is for elongated toilet bowls, however, you can get the round model here.  The seat installs like a traditional toilet seat would, only with longer bolts.  You’ll remove your old seat, place the Carex Health Brands Toilet Seat Elevator down, and then screw in your old seat.  The long bolts come with the seat.

The arms can be removed and can also be made to fit your bathroom however necessary.  If you need one, two, or no arms, you can change that how you like.  The Carex model is of course easy to clean as well, however, isn’t as easily removed like other raised toilet seats with arms.  detailed cleanings will need a little more work.

What others have said:

  • “I am happy to say that I made a good selection and this one is a winner.”
  • “I have two bad knees (waiting for knee replacement surgery) and this elevated seat was so helpful.”
  • “The height was wonderful and the handrails made it extremely useful.”
  • “Works great and was easy to install. I like the handles a lot, especially that they are not steel (our last one had enameled steel arms and eventually rusted).”

Drive Medical Premium Seat Riser

raised toilet seats with arms 32

The Drive Medical Premium Seat Riser (which we highlighted in our overview of toilet accessories for the elderly) is much like our last model in that it attaches to the toilet via your personal seat.  However unlike our last raised toilet seats with arms model, this seat fits on any type of toilet (round or elongated).  With a universal toilet appeal the Drive Medical Premium Seat Riser is as its name implies, “premium.”  But that doesn’t mean you’ll get this riser at a premium price!

The padded arms are around 20 inches apart and can be removed if need be, either one or both.  That provides flexibility for wheelchair-bound individuals and tight bathroom spaces.  There are zero tools needed to install the Premium Seat Riser and the bolts needed come with the riser.

What others have said:

  • “I am so thankful for and happy with this purchase; I had my hip replacement surgery 3 weeks ago, and I couldn’t have found a better, more secure, or stable elevated toilet seat!”
  • Bought this for my 95 year old mother in law, it works really well, and helps her to feel more stable getting on and off the toilet.”
  • “This is perfect! I was so impressed I bought a second one the next day for my upstairs bathroom.”

Carex E-Z Lock Raised Toilet Seat

raised toilet seats with arms 1231

This model is a lot like the first model we displayed on our list and would be a competing product to it.  The Carex E-Z Lock Raised Toilet Seat features an easy to use locking mechanism.  This secures the seat to the toilet bowl along with the brace on the opposite underneath side of the seat.  While it doesn’t bolt onto your toilet, it will be very secure.  The padded armrests are removable and the seat will fit on any shape of toilet bowl.

This very lightweight seat is also easy to take and transport to your desired location.  If you’re on a long trip, this seat can be quickly attached and detached in a moment’s notice.  You can leave the original toilet seat on the toilet and attach the E-Z Lock Toilet Seat with ease.

What others have said:

  • “The Carex met all our expectations. It took about 30 seconds to install. Fit our round commode well, tightened with no more than hand strength and has remained snug without further adjustment.”
  • “This is what you need for those surgeries that make it difficult to get up and down from a sitting position. This Carex E-Z lock raised toilet seat with the raised handle arms is working perfectly for me.”
  • “My wife recently had a total knee replacement and this raised toilet seat by Care-Ex made things much easier for her when using the bathroom.”

Tall-Ette Extra Wide Elevated Toilet Seat

raised toilet seat with arms

The Tall-Ette Extra Wide Elevated Toilet Seat is a bit different in comparison to our previous models.  As you can see, raised toilet seats with arms like these come with legs to help further stabilize the seat.  These models are likely the most stable raised toilet seats with arms you’ll find, simply due to have four connection points to the ground.

Now, the width of the Tall-Ette is pretty nice overall.  Much like an extra large toilet seat, it has a large surface area covering 22.5 inches by 18.5.  The legs are aluminum and are adjusted to fit over any toilet.  This is great because it can essentially work on ANY toilet type and size.  All that said, the arms are not removable like previously mentioned models.

What others have said:

  • “Used by a 94-year-old lady daily (about a month now); she leans more heavily on one arm than the other because of a very weak knee (injured in an industrial accident and had surgery 50 years ago).  This seat has no slippage, no shifting.”
  • ” I read a lot of reviews on Amazon & settled on this one. So glad I did. It was quick & easy for my husband to put together. It’s sturdy & comfortable. I especially like the padded grip bars.”
  • “I decided a raised toilet seat with the stability of legs was important. Turns out this particular one is just perfect!”

Raised Toilet Seat w/ Safety Frame

raised toilet seats with arms 432

Like the last choice of our raised toilet seats with arms, this option from Personal Care Products comes on four legs.  The seat is built into the frame which is crafted with 1-inch aluminum pipes.  The seat itself stretches down toward the toilet bowl, as you can see in this picture, giving you the ultimate flexibility in height options.  The top of the seat is adjustable between 18 and 23 inches.  Zero worry about installation for this raised toilet seat, you simply slip it over your toilet and it’s ready for use!

The grips are vinyl and the legs have stoppers on them, which helps pass along more stability to the user.  As mentioned before, raised toilet seats with arms are most stable in this format.  The legs on the ground help give maximum stability to the seat.  However, again like the last model on our list, this raised toilet seat from PCP is not good for tighter environments.

What others have said:

  • “My Mom really likes this and it is SOOOOOO much more sturdy then the ones you just screw on top. Highly recommend it for anyone that has balance issues and difficulty getting off the toilet.”
  • “It’s perfect because you do not have to worry about tightening bolts. You can also move it from one bathroom to another.”
  • “This toilet seat is very sturdy and safe and just what my 95 year old dad needed.”

Medline Locking Elevated Toilet Seat

raised toilet seats with arms 543

This Medline Elevated Toilet Seat is another bowl-locking raised toilet seat option.  As you can see on the front, there is a mechanism to lock the seat onto the toilet bowl.  It can be easily installed and uninstalled without the need to remove the original toilet seat.  The arms can be removed much like the others and the seat can hold up to 350 pounds, making it one of the stronger seats on this list.

To be transparent, pay close attention to the specifications of your home toilet.  The Medline isn’t as universal as some of our other options and could raise some issues if you have an elongated toilet bowl.  Be sure to measure your toilet bowl for this or any other seat on our list.

What others have said:

  • “I bought this for my 91 year old mother-in-law when she comes to visit us and she really benefited from using it. Now my wife is using it regularly because she says it’s so convenient.”
  • ‘I purchased this seat last summer. I was told I would need it as I was having a hip replacement and was not allowed to bend my hips over 90 degrees. The seat is really nice.”
  • “Bought it for my parents, recommended by a friend, and they absolutely LOVED it!
