Plumbing for people with disabilities: toilet

see examples:

Toilets and urinals with automatic drainage or manual push-button control should be used in bathrooms for disabled people. The use of toilets with an electric or hydraulic vertical movement mechanism is allowed. The recommended height of the toilet seats is 0.45-0.5 m, a backrest is desirable.

At least one of the sides of the toilet should have a free space of 75-90 cm for the wheelchair to maneuver and transfer from it to the toilet and vice versa. Handrails can be a structural element of special toilet bowls for disabled people or can be mounted separately. If the sink and toilet are located opposite the toilet door, then it is advisable to place the door opposite the sink, rather than the toilet, to provide more space for maneuvering the wheelchair. It is convenient when you can use the sink directly from the toilet, but this should not interfere with maneuvering in the toilet area. The best option is to place an additional small sink next to the toilet.
