How can a portable toilet help in treating urinary incontinence?

ANSWER

If you have difficulty walking, talk to your doctor. You may benefit from a portable toilet that can be placed close to your bed or living area. In addition, move electrical cords, throw rugs, or furniture out of hallways and walkways so that you do not trip or fall on the way to the bathroom.
