Support-The old-Toilet / Older Toilet

Support-The old-Toilet

iF concept design award

The problem: Older people often encounter difficulty in using the toilet. Once they have finished, they need the help of crutches or other people in order to stand up again. The answer: With our design, you use the toilet the other way around so that when the person has finished, he or she can use the toilet tank as a support for their hands and arms when standing up. This means that older people get the added leverage they need to be able to stand up with confidence by themselves.
