http://MedwayCorp.com – The Easy Toilet Riser from Medway can’t be simpler when it comes to keeping it clean, especially compared to those other toilet seat risers!
This is a pretty strange topic for any of my blogs, right? Ha! I laughed when I watched this video… this is the sort of company I like.
So anyway, it was gettin’ to be a really painful sight to see, watching my aunt get up from the stylish, elongated crapper my friend the Fifaridu and me put in the terlet in preparation for her arrival from California back in the early spring of 2000. No one deserves to go through that sort of thing after living a full life.
Heard about toilet seat risers which solve this issue from someone, somewhere, oh, wait, that’s right, it was that social worker. Google came up with tons of hits for the sort of contraption shown in the vid. Most were simple like he shows and some were pretty fancy. They weren’t all that cheap either, considering. Further digging revealed that there was displeasure with the performance and reliability of these things.
Then I came across this Medway riser, also via Google, made in USA, even. It immediately appealed to my science and engineering trained head. I was like, “Doh!” Quite frankly, it made all the other ones, yes all of them, seem like a really bad joke. Strangely enough, ordering it from the company was the cheapest route as they had free shipping.
So I, with the help of a new friend Ron, just put one of these things in for her yesterday at the lunch hour.
Comes with a Chinese tank hose, it does. Sigh. For the price I thought they could do better. Anyway, didn’t need it in my case. The base itself is strong to be sure and works perfectly. I just wish it was six inches longer, as the snoot of this particular toilet hangs out a bit past the front of the riser… which doesn’t assist the elegance department at all. I’ll think of something for it.
The weird thing for me was that all of the people I told about it got this wild glazed over look and pronounced it bad and extolled the virtues of the contraptions I has initially looked at and nearly bought. Every single one of hem. Including Ron! It was almost like a trigger idea for them to go all Manchurian Candidate on yer ass. Spooky. I thought them all to be quite temporarily insane. Big pharma conspiracy theories sprang up like mushrooms.
It certainly does the trick. When she is sitting on it now, her feet don’t touch the ground. And standing back up, (the whole reason for the thing in the first place), is now relatively effortless, which pleases us both and although she can no longer verbalize that, one can tell.
