Title
(EN) Toilet seat lifting apparatus
Abstract
(EN) A toilet seat lifting apparatus comprises a first member for attachment to a toilet bowl rim 42 and an energy storage member in the form of a helical spring 30. The spring has a variable internal and/or external diameter along its length and is connected between the first member and the underside of a toilet seat 44 in order to urge the seat away from the first member. A second member 20 may be attached to the underside of the seat. The spring may be a conical spring and may be compressible into a planar spiral. The first member may comprise a C-shaped bracket which may be adjustable and/or inclined to grip rims of different shapes. The spring may be provided with a flexible sleeve or cover. Also claimed is a method of retrofitting a seat lifting apparatus, a toilet comprising the lifting apparatus and computer-readable instructions for 3D printing the lifting apparatus.
