A squat stool, also known as a toilet stool or a bathroom stool, is a device that can be used while using the toilet to achieve a more natural squatting position. The stool is placed around the base of the toilet and elevates the feet and legs to simulate the squatting position, which is believed to promote easier and more complete elimination of waste from the body.
The use of a squat stool has become increasingly popular in recent years, as more people are becoming aware of the potential health benefits of using a more natural position while on the toilet. Advocates of the squatting position claim that it can help reduce the risk of constipation, hemorrhoids, and other digestive issues by allowing for more efficient elimination of waste from the body. Squat stools come in various designs and materials, including plastic, wood, and metal. Some models are portable and can be easily carried around while travelling.
