Raised toilet seat
This is a revolutionary product, designed for Lumex, that set the standard for all other toilet seats, raised or flat. When we designed this there were only two kinds of raised seats -- ones that needed to be permanently assembled to the toilet or ones that rested on the bowl rim, and both were uncomfortable. The permanently mounted versions meant that people who didn't need it were uncomfortable in using it and people fell off the loose ones. We created a simple connecting device that allows anyone, including people with disabilities, to attach and remove the seat easily, created a contoured top that was truly comfortable to sit on because it was contoured to fit the body and is inexpensive enough so that people of limited means can afford it..
Designed to help Patients increase breathing function after medical procedures, our challenge was to have this medical product design look interesting, work accurately and meet manufacturing cost parameters.
