How Much Does A Bedside Commode Cost ?

by | Beginners Info, Personal Hygiene

After trying raised toilet seats for my mom, and finding them rather unsatisfactory for a lady of almost 90, at the time, we moved on to bedside commodes which were much more successful. We needed the commode chair for a period of time after hip replacement surgery for my mom, but she still uses it as a raised toilet seat today – some 22 months later, and loves it.

Bedside commodes cost between $ 37.99 and $3303.88. The average price for a static bedside commode is between 100-200$. The more specialized shower/transport bedside commodes  bariatric commodes are the most expensive.

So what are the different types of bedside commodes ?

Bedside commodes don’t just have to be used by the bed, as their name implies, and are often used for multiple functions.

The most common types of bedside commode are –

  • static portable bedside commodes
  • drop arm commodes
  • transport or rolling bedside commodes
  • combination shower chair, transport chair and bedside commode
  • and a specialist type called transfer commodes

All of these types of bedside commode come in a range of versions –

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

I have a much longer article in which I discuss in depth the different types of bedside commode, their functions and their suitability for our elderly parents and the various situations to which the different types are best suited. You can find that article here.

Now for some brief outlines of each one of the different types of bedside commodes that I noted above, and that you will find in the price lists of the different bedside commodes.

Static portable bedside commodes

Static bedside commodes are extremely versatile, hence you will see them frequently referred to as 3-in-1 commodes and all-in-one commodes.

These commodes have at least 3 intended uses –

 

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

The frames for lighter models for smaller people are generally made from aluminum, and for the bariatric, and heavy duty frames steel or special plastic constructions are used.

Drop arm bedside commodes

Drop arm commodes don’t have fixed arms like the standard commodes. Their arms may swing up or down, and may also be removed on a lot of models

The drop arm models are to help with access and in some cases for getting onto the commode from the side, and is destined mainly for use by wheelchair users and individuals who need to transfer onto a commode from a bed but who cannot stand.

These models are also useful even if the user can stand, as they can give a caregiver access from the side if they need to help the user with cleaning themselves, or any other job which a fixed armrest would obstruct.

Drop arms may also be found on all the other types of commode as well as on a standard fixed commode with drop arms, but is in its self a specific type of bedside commode.

Static Drop arm commodes are designed for a number of functions –

 

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

Mobile shower transport, transport commodes may have drop arms, but cannot be used as toilet safety rails.

Transport or rolling bedside commodes

Transport or rolling bedside commodes are bedside commodes with wheels, enabling you push your loved ones around the home.

The transport commode can be used as –

 

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

Shower transport bedside commodes

These commodes have been specifically designed for wheeling into the shower.

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 – but only certain types can do this, so do check if this is something that you need it for

Transfer bench bedside commodes

These are transfer benches and a commodes combined.

The transfer commode can be used as –

 

  • a commode
  • and a transfer bench for the bath or shower

Portable bedside commodes Prices in the US
