3-in-1 Commodes

3-in-1 Commodes

All-in-one or 3-in-1 commodes can be used bedside as a stand-alone commode, as an elevated toilet seat, or as safety arms over the toilet. Take advantage of our low-price match guarantee and free shipping.

Why are these commodes called 3-in-1?

It's simple. All-in-one (or 3-in-1) commodes can be used in 3 ways:

  1. As a bedside toilet in the bedroom;
  2. As an elevated toilet seat when placed over the toilet;
  3. As safety arm rails when placed over the toilet.

They are a great choice for seniors as they adapt to changing and/or alternating physical conditions and abilities. 

Using the 3-in-1 commode over an existing toilet, like a raised toilet seat with arms, raises the seat height and assists the user in standing.

Most all commodes and bedside commodes are adjustable in height and include a removable pail. Additional features may include a padded seat, elongated seat, oversized seat, increased weight capacity and/or splash guard for over the toilet use.

How do you install a 3-in-1 commode over a toilet?

Installing 3-in-1 Bedside Commode over toilet

I'm Chris Wilson with modified independence evaluations. We're here today to discuss a medicare three-in-one bedside commode. It's three-in-one because it has three primary uses, the first being next to the bed. It comes with a bucket and a lid.

We're going to take the lid and the bucket and set these off to the side and discuss its second use which is over top of the toilet.

We're going to use this (he's referring to a removable ring inside the bucket that he removes), put it inside of here (referring to putting that ring inside the commode. Now instead of a bucket, there is just a ring under the seat of the commode), put the seat down, come to the toilet, lift the toilet seat and the lid up and place this (referring to the commode) directly over top of it.

Now what you have is a good solid sturdy seated surface for the person to be able to come in grab a hold of sit down do their business and push to stand back up If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me at modify-independence.com.

Can 3-in-1 commodes be used in the shower? 

Thanks to the included pail, you can use the MULTI-USE 3-in-1 commode anywhere, including in the shower. However, if you need a  shower chair as well, you might want to consider a chair that was specifically designed for wet environments with the advantage of non-skid feet and rust-resistant aluminum frames, among other things. Check out our "shower chairs with wheels" category where you'll see all have commode pails and a few can even be placed over the toilet. They are all missing the 3rd advantage of 3-in-1 commodes in that they cannot be used as a safety catch around the traditional toilet. 

What's the benefit of an elongated seat? 

Elongated bowls are also considered more 'hygienic' because the larger surface area of the bowl provides easier access for personal hygiene.  The longer bowl size is also a requirement for ADA use as the longer bowl is generally easier to use for those with mobility issues. 

Does Medicare cover bedside commodes?

If your doctor orders a bedside commode, Medicare Part B will typically pay 80% of the allowable charges for your commode chair. That's because Medicare classifies commodes as Durable Medical Equipment (DME) which Medicare Part B generally covers when medically necessary.
