Who Can Use the Oxford Ranger Commode and Transporter Seat?

The Oxford Ranger Commode and Transporter Seat is suitable for individuals who struggle to get in and out of a bath but who would otherwise be able to enjoy a bath with transfer assistance. It's particularly suited if you still maintain a good deal of independence and can sit upright comfortably but would benefit from a little help when using the bath. The seat also includes side handles, helping you to feel safe and supported.

Please note that the Oxford Ranger Commode and Transporter Seat has a safe working load of 125kg or 20 stone.

How Can Carers Benefit from the Ranger Commode and Transporter Seat?

In addition to improving the bathing experience for the user, the Ranger Commode and Transporter Seat also helps to reduce the strain on a carer by eliminating the need for physical exertion when assisting a loved one or patient with bath transfers. This improves safety for the carer, ensuring they can continue to support their patient or loved one as required.

Will My Bath Be Suitable for the Oxford Transporter Seat?

The Ranger Commode and Transporter Seat is suitable for most bath-side locations. It can be secured either at the end of the bath or on the right- or left-hand side, ensuring it can be used is virtually any environment.

If you fit your hoist to the side of the bath, a width of 810mm and a length of 430mm will be required. Please see the diagrams below for more information.
