Commode

What is a commode?

A commode is a moveable toilet. It does not have drainage or a flush affixed and has to be emptied after every use. A commode can be used in any part of the house and is convenient for the elderly population.

Who can benefit from using a commode?

  • Individuals with mobility issues, 
  • Individuals with a fear of falling 
  • Individuals prone to falls,
  • Individuals who have frequent falls, 
  • Individuals with neurological issues, 
  • Individuals with pain in their lower limb,
  • Individuals who need to use the toilet at night, 
  • Individuals with no carer to monitor them overnight.

What are the disadvantages of using a commode?

Emptying the commode is the main disadvantage. Furthermore, a user may be left with excretion in their room for a period of time, until a carer empties the commode.

What are the types of commode? 

  1. Static commode

It has four legs similar to a chair. There is a toilet seat on top of a basket to collect the excretion, instead of a seat in a chair.

  1. Commode on wheels

It is similar to a wheelchair. Instead of a seat in a wheelchair, there is a toilet. 

The user’s physiotherapist or occupational therapist can suggest an appropriate type of commode following assessment.
