Kohler Company Introduces the Hyten Elevated Toilet Seat

Kohler Co., a global leader in the innovation and manufacture of plumbing products, introduces the Hyten Elevated Toilet Seat – a new solution for consumers who are Aging-in-Place or those with mobility issues. Each year, about 1 million seniors do some type of bathroom remodeling (Aging in Place Market Situation & Opportunity). The Hyten Toilet Seat adds three inches of height for comfort while sitting and improves accessibility while lowering to and raising from the seat, and the simple upgrade seat is easy to install without the need for a completely new toilet.

The design of the seat is sleek yet functional, without looking institutional, providing a solution for those experiencing mobility issues without compromising on function or design. The Hyten boasts top mounting hardware for easy installation with a screwdriver and no reaching under the bowl to install. The seat will be available in a round-front and elongated options to fit existing toilets. Grip-Tight bumpers prevent the seat from shifting, increasing security, while Kohler’s Quiet-Close hinges ensure the seat lid won’t slam. A quick-release button makes removal for cleaning simple.

When paired with Kohler’s numerous Comfort Height toilet options, the overall resulting height of the toilet is 19.5 inches, vastly improving the ease of getting on and off the toilet for consumers. As aging homeowners are faced with unplanned changes in their ability to access and use their existing bathroom independently, the Hyten toilet seat offers added accessibility in the space. By enhancing safety through this simple addition, aging-in-place consumers can often stay in their homes longer.
