Bedside Commode Weight Capacity: A Guide With Over 140 Examples and Illustrations

by

 

After my Mom had her hip replacement, we found that raised toilet seats were not at all to her liking, and that we needed something more sturdy, and which could be used in different rooms from the bathroom, as well as being used over the toilet, eventually.

In my research for Mom I found bedside commodes with 29 different weight limits for the different models, so you really do need to check. To make this job easier, I made a listing here with the different models, manufacturers and weight capacities, all in this post – over 140 examples of bedside commodes and their weight limits.

Bedside commode weight limits range from 220 lb to 1500 lb.

 

Portable bedside commodes weight limits

 

In this article, I have listed over 140 bedside commodes of the main types  of bedside commode, according to their maximum weight capacities, or limits, and then each type within that weight limit.

I have included the manufacturers’ product numbers for the different commodes to avoid any confusion if you search for them, as the names of the commodes tend to get very muddled, but the numbers stay the same.

Bedside commodes around 400 lb and above are typically referred to as bariatric, or heavy duty bedside commodes.

 

In the sections following the weights limits, you will find a brief illustrated guide to the different types of bedside commode.

What are the main types of bedside commodes ?

 

The following types of bedside commodes are the most common types and can all be –

 

  • folding
  • padded
  • lightweight
  • bariatric or heavy duty
  • wide and extra wide

 

If you want to read more about the different types of bedside commode, their functions, their suitability for our elderly parents, and the experiences I have had with them as a caregiver to my parents, with my tips on how to use them properly, you can find that article here, “Bedside Commodes: How To Make The Right Choice ?”.

Portable bedside commodes

 

The static bedside commode is commonly referred to as the 3-in-1 commode and the all-in-one commode.

 

But in fact there are a number of types –

 

  • basic static folding bedside commode – folds like a chair and can only be used as a bedside commode
  • static stacking commodes, which can be used as a bedside commode and as a raised toilet seat over a toilet
  • static shower/bath chair and bedside commode which is waterproof and can be used as a chair in the bath or sower and as a bedside commode – some models fold, some don’t

The 3-in-1 bedside commode is also a static bedside commode, but it is more versatile, and can be found in a wide range of models with variations and capacities, that the other basic commodes cannot match.

Its three main uses –

 

  • bedside commode
  • as a raised toilet seat
  • as a toilet safety frame when you remove the seat, pale and lid

 

The models can be found to support a whole range of different weights, all the way up to 1500 lb.

Drop arm bedside commodes

Static drop arm bedside commode

 

Drop arm commodes are very similar to the standard 3-in-1 bedside commode, except that the arms are not fixed, and can be moved out of position to allow side access and may also be removed on a lot of models.

Drop arm commodes are used generally by people who are transferring from a bed, or by wheelchair users, as they can slide over and in from the side.

In some cases it helps for caregivers to give assistance with cleaning from the side, and this is why the arms are made, so they can be swung up or down, or removed.

As well as finding drop arms on static commodes, they can be found on shower chair commodes and on transport, or rolling, bedside commodes.

Static drop arm commodes are can also be used –

 

  • as a bedside commode
  • as a toilet safety frame
  • as a raised toilet seat over a conventional toilet

 

Transport or rolling bedside commodes

 

Transport, or rolling, bedside commodes are bedside commodes with wheels, which also allow the commode to also be used as a transport chair.

Transport, or rolling, bedside commodes typically have casters, or rubber wheels, up to about 5″ in size.

There do exist commode chairs with larger wheelchair size back wheels, which are known as “self-propelling” transport commodes.

The transport commode can be used as –

 

  • a transport chair
  • a bedside commode
  • a raised toilet seat over a toilet

 

Attendant transport bedside commode

Self-propelling transport commode

Shower transport bedside commodes

 

Shower commodes have been specifically designed for wheeling into the shower, but won’t function if your shower has any kind of rim, or step, if it has very tiny wheels.

As with the transport bedside commode, there are two types of model, the “attendant” model where the user is pushed by another person, or the “self-propelling” model with large wheelchair type wheels, where the user is able to wheel themselves around without assistance.

The shower chair and bedside transport commodes’ functions include –

 

  • as a shower chair
  • a transport chair
  • a bedside commode
  • a raised toilet seat over a toilet

If it is important to you that your shower transport bedside commode can be used over a toilet as a raised toilet seat, you must take care not to buy one which has any horizontal bars across the back legs, as these will not allow you to push the commode over the toilet.

Often these commodes don’t have a great range of adjustable heights, if any, and this may mean that they can’t go over a toilet, so check with the seller that the shower chair commode is able to go over a toilet, and make sure that it clears the rim of your toilet bowl.

Transfer bench commodes

Transfer bench commodes are a bench for transferring into the shower or bathtub, combined with a commode.
 

Bariatric bedside commode

Bariatric commodes, also called “heavy duty”, as I noted earlier, are for larger individuals, usually start with weight capacities of  400 lb, and can go all the way up to supporting 1500 lb for some static commodes, and for rolling commodes 750 lb, and understandably the structure of the commodes change a little.

Extra wide bedside commodes for adults

 

Bedside commodes are mad for users of all sizes – 

  • seat widths range from 13″ up to 31″
  • seat depths range from 14″ up to 23″
  • widths between armrests range from 17 3/4″ up to 31 1/4″

Extra wide frames and seats can be found on a whole range of bedside commodes.

As well as the seat being wider, the frame is also wider, typically between 24 and 26 1/2″ in between the armrests, as opposed to around 19″ on a standard bedside commode.

The seat form is a touch more elongated – deeper from front to back.

If you want to find out more about the different widths, heights, depths, materials and the specific models, you can read about that in my article “Do Bedside Commodes Come In Different Sizes ?”.

Bariatric bedside commodes with a large seat opening

 

Elongated bedside commode seats

 

For easier access for personal cleaning, some bedside commodes have seats which are elongated in form, front to back, giving more depth and space than a rounder design.

The standard bedside commode seat is typically 14 1/2″ deep and 13″ wide, and elongated bedside commode seats are generally between 15 1/2″ to 19″ deep.

The seats may also be open front or closed front, depending on the model, with the open front affording even greater access for personal hygiene.

 

Elongated seats with extra wide frames

 

The seats are designed to give greater width for the thighs and hips, and elongated to make cleaning yourself easier.

The extra wide frames are typically on commodes with weight capacities of 400 lb and up.
