    Padded seats for hotel?

    My bp take up to two hours on toilet. At home seat is padded. In a hotel it would not be.

    1. Is it safe to be on a non-padded seat for very long? My sense is that even with weight shifts it would be dangerous.

    2. Is there a portable cushion or other device for safely using hotel toilet seats?

      Have you tried something to shorten up your bowel program??? Magic Bullet?? Enemeez???

      The Roho toilet seat pad is OK, but the straps are easily torn:



      The Carex one is OK for some:



      Sammons makes this one:



      I assume you don't need a raised toilet seat...

        I'm in Australia, but the company here that supply commodes also make a raised toilet seat that is pretty much the same as the padded cushion on a commode, but has metal support that fit on to the toilet seat. Not sure if this helps you as it's still pretty bulky for transport. I definately wouldn't be using a hard seat for that long.

          I have the roho and the carex. I actually prefer the carex one. I would not recommend either of them for two hours though.
