Make Toileting a Breeze with the Best Toilet Aids for Disabled & Elderly
For most people, going to the toilet is a simple – and private! – action that doesn’t require
second thoughts and special planning. But what happens when such a simple action gets
hindered by mobility limitations?
For many handicapped and old people, toileting can turn into a permanent struggle. The lack
of privacy and autonomy brings about unnecessary emotional stress, confidence loss, and a
difficult to manage feeling of embarrassment. We emphasize the word ‘unnecessary’ for a very
good reason: with the appropriate adaptive equipment specifically designed for disabled and
elderly people, you will no longer need assistance to keep your private matters … private.
There is no need to sacrifice your dignity and self-reliance simply because you are getting older
or having mobility issues!
At Aids4Mobility, we put at your disposal a wide range of comfortable, practical, and versatile
toilet aids. From urinals and bedpans to commodes, toilet frames, toilet seats, stand-alone
grab rails, incontinence care, and many other useful accessories, we boast the highest-quality
toilet aids in the UK! Obviously, always at the best prices and guaranteeing full customer

Please note: VAT is removed in the checkout process
In the UK, disabled people do not have to pay VAT when buying certain disability aids and services (This can be claimed by friend or family member purchasing on their behalf). Not everything supplied to disabled people is necessarily zero-rated for VAT. Goods and services on which you do not have to pay VAT are usually known as 'zero-rated' or 'eligible for VAT relief.
Who is eligible for VAT relief?
You must be 'chronically sick or disabled' to qualify for VAT relief. The HMRC comment on this is as follows. A person is 'chronically sick or disabled' if they either:
have a physical or mental impairment that has a long-term and severe effect on their ability to carry out everyday activities;
have a condition that doctors treat as a chronic sickness - like diabetes, for example;
are terminally ill
VAT Relief on our Disability Aids
All products on the Aids for Mobility website are flagged with an option to claim VAT relief during Checkout if it applies to that item. When you add a zero-rated product or service to your Basket, you will be asked to tick a checkbox to confirm that you, or the person for whom you are buying the item, are eligible for VAT Relief.
How VAT relief works
If you are claiming VAT Relief you will be asked to complete an extra few questions during Checkout, where we will ask you to provide brief details of your disability and confirmation that the product is for 'personal or domestic use'. We will keep a record of this declaration along with your order details. You can then buy the product(s) in your Basket at a price that excludes VAT. You will be asked to make this declaration each time you place an order that includes zero-rated products. It is a legal requirement that we record this information for every order, and we apologise for the inconvenience.
