TOUCHLESS TOILET

The toilet seat lid of the iTouchless Touchless Sensor Toilet Seat, available from

SENIOR TOUCH LLC, automatically raises when the user approaches its front sensor, making it ready for seated use. A wave of the hand over the top sensor raises the seat for standing use. After the user departs, both the seat and the lid will lower, without a touch. This automated function eliminates the need to touch the seat by hand. Built-in motion sensors ensure the seat will never close during use. The seat comes with a rechargeable battery and fits most elongated and round size toilet bowls. It is available at a limited introductory price. Call (800) 660-7978 and mention discount code #1031.
