Evaluation

Just from the simple idea of having an incline on the footrest of the toilet pan, they have made great progress in comparison to conventional products. This forward incline reduces stress on the ankles, stabilizes the center of gravity when squatting down, and makes it easier to stand up again. Also, this forward inclination on the footstool helps indicate the direction of the toilet's use. This simple device has become a wonderful solution.
