For the elderly, the handicapped, and small children, a toilet seat riser with arms is a must-have for those who experience difficulty sitting or standing. The toilet seat riser with arms provides much needed support while getting on and off the toilet and is quite easily attached to your toilet. Some are even designed to be used with your regular toilet seat and lid so as to not alter your bathroom decor.
