Maintain your independence and dignity with the Dignity Lifts BL1 basic toilet lift
The BL1 is a safe, sturdy, and affordable toilet lift. It helps you keep your dignity and prevents bathroom falls. Dignity Lifts are the smart way to remain in your home as long as possible. The BL1 is our most affordable model.
Dignity Lifts help you get down to and up from the toilet easily
They give you a slow and steady lift back to the upright position. It takes a brief 26 seconds for this lift get you from fully seated to a standing position. Strong handles ensure you'll be able to do this without the need for a helper.
Dignity Lifts prevent falls
If your leg "falls asleep" on the toilet, it can be very difficult to keep your balance. Bathroom falls are especially dangerous because there are many hard surfaces. It is better to have a steady, safe way to stand up.
When is a good time to consider a dignity lift?
One sign you will benefit from using our lift is when you start using a walker. The need to steady yourself when walking is an indication that you will probably also need assistance standing after using the toilet. You should also consider a dignity lift if you have trouble standing up from a seated position.
The Dignity Lift BL1 works with most toilets
It will work with toilets that have bowl heights of 16 inches all the way up to 18 inch bowl heights. The lift adjusts with its adjustable feet.
The Dignity Lifts BL1 will likely fit in your bathroom
The lift has an overall width of 23 7/8" and a depth of 27". The toilet nook in houses is supposed to be at least 24" (per building code) so this lift fits in normal bathrooms.
The Dignity Lifts BL1 will fit you
Our basic lift has a weight limit of 300 pounds and the distance between handles is 20", which is as wide as most office chairs.
The BL1 will stand you all of the way up
The lift raises the back of the toilet seat 9 inches. Typically the lift begins at 18" and ends at 27" tall.
Installing a Dignity Lift is easy
It is as simple as removing your current toilet seat and putting the Dignity Lift BL1 in its place. The BL1 is a little heavy, so you want to make sure the installer can lift 50 pounds, but once in place, it is extremely stable and secure. If you don't think you are able to install the lift yourself, we offer White Glove Delivery as well. We also offer installation videos (see below) so you or your handyman will have no trouble installing your toilet lift.
The BL1 plugs into the wall
Be sure the plug is on a GFI circuit (bathroom circuits require this to prevent electrical shocks). If you have a plug near your toilet, maybe one you use for a blow dryer or shaver, that will work. Do not run an extension cord from a different room to power your Dignity Lift. Outlets outside the bathroom are not safe for applications that are close to water. If you don't have good access at the toilet to electricity, you should consider our Deluxe Toilet Lift - DL1 it has a rechargeable battery that only needs to be charged once per month.
