This bedside commode is great. It was recommended by my Occupational Therapist, after I fell in my home. Both my knees are gone and need replacing, so until I am able to have the surgery, my walking is limited. So having the bedside commode in my bedroom has been a big help. My only complaint is that when you removed the pot sometimes the seat itself moves and then when you go to use it, the back of my leg has been pinched to the point that it has bleed because of the screw that's in the front and the seat moved over and my leg was pinched between the lid and screw when I sat down. So make sure when you replace the pot, make sure the lid has not moved over to the point the screw is not covered by the lid, so if you are a big girl, the back of your leg is not pinched. One other complaint is the handle on the bucket is a piece of crap, so don't pick it up by the wire handle, pick it up by handles on the side of the bucket. I also pour a little Fabroso in it after washing it out, so that it doesn't smell until you have to empty it.

I bought this because I had the same model over one of my toilets since early 2013, but some of the frame had rusted and one of the support rods for the splash guard had broken partially off due to rust. But generally, I had been happy with the commode. When the new one -- same model -- arrived -- I noticed a serious difference from the old one, despite the same model number: namely, that the back bar is RIVETED on rather than merely screw-bolted on. That meant the back bar -- which Medline's own website videos say should not be used when the unit is used over a toilet -- could not be removed readily! Terrible. I had to get my handyman to use a drill on the rivets to remove the back bar. If you do not remove the back bar, the unit sits too far forward over the toilet, causing misalignment of the splash guard over the toilet bowl flush hole. MAJOR FLAW IN DESIGN FOR USE OVER A TOILET. GO BACK TO A SCREWED ON BACK BAR!!!

I bought this commode to act as a permanent raised toilet in my mother's bathroom. She's tall and large and this seat is constructed to fit her needs. The price is very reasonable as well. However, there is one problem: the toilet seat! This seat is an example of bad engineering! Although this is a bariatric commode, the actual toilet seat is a standard sized seat! It is much too small and uncomfortable for a large person to sit on. It pinches and buckles and leaves little room in the front to clean properly as it's a closed seat. The front should have been designed open and the seat should have been designed for a larger person. It is truly a great flaw.

After a week with this, my mother reverted to using the seat from her last barometric commode (the frame of the commode finally gave up after 15 years). However, that seat's attachment broke after little more than a year, forcing her to reattach the seat that came with the Medline frame. She is not happy, so I am not happy! We are desperately searching for a replacement toilet seat! Please comment if you know where we can find one!

This the second bedside commode I've had since becoming a above the knee amputee. The first one is 15 years old and I felt for safety purposes it was time for a new one.
My commode arrived within 2 day! I'm so pleased at the 2 day delivery. It came assembled. Only the seat had to be popped in place. The legs can be adjusted to the height that is most comfortable. The width is perfect. The cost was very reasonable.

I love my new bedside commode. It's made by Guardian and came with instructions.
I'm so pleased Amazon can supply so many products for those of us who are challenged.

The overall structure of the commode is sturdy however the liner that fits in the bucket next to the support bar leaves a gap and for a man it can create leaking on the floor. I put it in the shower for my husband to sit on for shower and the two support bars underneath the bucket filled with water and dumped rust all over the shower floor. I actually went to a medical supply store and bought one with
a continuous seat all the way across.......much nicer and true to the name bariatric. LD Florida

This is a very high, quality product. Made extremely well yet, easy to pickup and move around. Plenty of room so that, once your seated, you can open your legs easily to reach between them to clean yourself. With narrower commodes, the legs couldn't be spread enough to gain access between them for adequate reach for cleaning one's self. I bought two, one for home and one to be used at the adult-daycare we use. I highly recommend this product.

I ordered this commode for a family member. She needed a commode that could be use independently or as a "riser" over a regular toilet. The comments I received is that the commode is very solid, well-made, plenty wide enough for her approx. 230# frame, and fits well over the toilet. Based on their comments, I would say this fit the bill perfectly and would be something they would recommend.

Poorly designed. It pinches the person using it in the front and in the back on both sides. It could be made usable by cutting away part of the seat in the back and perhaps something else done in the front. Other than the pinching and the related issue of a seat that flexes a lot, it seem alright.

It's nice as nice as commodes go. However, I suggest you take the handle off the bucket because it will eventually fall off and what a mess that could be. Also if you are fat and most likely you are if buying a bariatric whatever, this thing pinches the legs to the point of bleeding. I suggest trying commode seat covers. Would I buy it again? No.

I was disappointed. The seat is very uncomfortable to sit on. It is also very heavy.
