Go back to basics and adopt the perfect squat with SquattyPotty.
The human body was designed to squat to defecate. Only when our knees are raised above our hips does the puborectalis, the muscle which chokes the rectum, fully relax and create on open exit. When we sit on the loo our body remains in this continence mode and we're forced to strain to force faeces past the rectum and are unable to completely empty the bowel.
Ecxessive straining puts immense pressure on the blood vessels and muscles surrounding the rectum which can lead to haemorrhoids and even faecal incontinence in extreme cases. Straining also puts pressure on the pelvic floor and can lead to bladder weakness. Plus, ineffective waste elimination can cause faeces to build up and stagnate in the bowel, resulting in constipation and infection which leads to appendicitis, IBS and even bowel disease and cancer.
SquattyPotty allows you to achieve the perfect squatting position without you having to lose the comfort of the sit-down toilet. It was designed with advice from medical professionals so that it positions the feet and legs at the perfect angle to take the body out of contienence mode; the puborectalis relaxes, the rectum straightens and gravity can do it's work in eliminating waste. Defecating is easier and more complete, and when you're done SquattyPotty simply slides away under the toilet bowl.
This 9 inch model is designed for toilets 16 inches tall and higher. Measure your toilet from floor to bowl with seat lifted up to determine its height. It's constructed from high quality, stylish tao bamboo and perfectly complements any sleek modern bathroom.
