SedMed Solutions, co-founded by Jeremy Bronen and Timothy Krupski, has created a patent pending toilet lift assist product to help the elderly and disabled get on and off the toilet. Timothy and Jeremy saw that too many senior citizens or otherwise disabled people were struggling with daily toileting activities leading to falls, injuries, and even deaths. This company and this product were founded on the principal of caring for and helping the people we love - our families.
