Title:
TOILET SEAT-LIFTING DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2000041609
Kind Code:
B1
Abstract:
A toilet seat-lifting device including a lever assembly (42) coupled to a toilet seat. The lever assembly (42) is mounted on a platform (44) that rests on the floor and a pedal attached to the lever assembly (42) in such a manner that as the pedal is pushed downward, the toilet seat is lifted from a lower position to an upper position. The platform (44) provides a stable support for the lever assembly (42) without having to directly attach the device to the toilet's base or floor. Also, the seat-lifting device is adapted to allow mounting of a stand (46) on either the right-hand or left-hand side of the toilet. Further, the lever assembly (42) includes an adjustable connection between a lift arm (72) and a pedal-connecting arm (70) to accommodate different height of toilet bases and/or different desired upper positions.
