The Squatty Potty Toilet Posture Stool
The Squatty Potty toilet posture stool makes having bowel movements easier.
With our UrineAide home bathroom urinal product, we fully promote and endorse men using the toilet standing up, but unfortunately, with that other bodily function, standing is very much not advised. So you must sit for that one, and we fully endorse that position! However, sitting to have a bowel movement can at times be an uncomfortable, straining situation, for both men and women. But it doesn’t have to be.
Difficult, straining defecation can be a result of constipation due to diet or prescription medicine use, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s Disease, and other gastroenterological disorders and conditions, both temporary and permanent.
The folks at The Squatty Potty have used science to make a seemingly straightforward bodily function an easier task to perform, much like what we have done with the UrineAide. They discovered, through study and research, that if your hips are flexed to bring the knees higher than normal, (like squatting in many countries) the angle of the anorectal canal becomes more of a highway than a back road. The anorectal canal becomes more straight versus curved and kinked, and that, my friends, is pretty much it in a nutshell. Very simple, yet very useful science.
So, after figuring that out, they also decided to make the Squatty Potty easy to use, easy to clean and easy to slide away under the toilet. The 7" squatty potty works with both standard (14" - 15.5") and comfort height (16"-18") toilets. At the end of the day, it’s just a stool, but it’s a stool with a purpose! They have even made a folding, portable model for travelling. The Squatty Potty could be the answer to ending strained and uncomfortable bowel movements, and for the reasonable price it’s well worth your consideration.
