Raised toilet seat - hole not large enough for elderly man!?

by Carol
(Charles Town, WV)

Bought a CAREX raised toilet seat with armrests for my 98 year old dad because he had such a hard time getting back up from the regular toilet seat.

Now, when he sits on the CAREX, his "junk" points straight out through the groove, as if the groove was made to cradle "it", and of course the pee goes all over his pulled down diaper and pants, ultimately covering the bathroom floor with pee.
HELP ME Please!

You know when potty training little boys, there was a cup in front of the little "junk" and it directed the stream down into the bowl. Why aren't these raised seats made similarly for grown men?
