A squatting position when using the toilet is considered by some researchers to have major benefits, particularly for bowel health, but also for the prevention of pelvic floor damage that may occur when straining during defecation.
Squatting straightens out the anal canal, making bowel movements easier and causing less strain on the pelvic floor, particularly for anyone with a tendency to constipation.
However, adapting the western-style toilets in our homes is hard without costly and permanent plumbing alterations. Squatting usually means either a pile of bricks on each side of the existing toilet, or abandoning the existing toilet altogether in favour of a bedpan on the floor instead.
The In Lieu Toilet Converter overcomes this problem, by allowing you to use a standard western-style toilet as a squat toilet. Moulded in polyethelene, in one firm, stable piece, it fits 99% of Australian toilets, and is easy to clean and use.
In plain white, the In Lieu suits any bathroom decor. It fits neatly around the base of a standard toilet pedestal, yet is also easily moved out of the way if required for the comfort of visitors and family members who prefer a western-style toilet. It weighs only 4.5kg, incorporates hand recesses for easy lifting, textured footprint areas for good grip and raised heels for stability.
The In Lieu comes with a short booklet on its benefits and use, written by its Australian designer, Wallace Bowles.
It is the ideal solution for discreetly converting your existing toilet into a squat toilet, and for easily incorporating the healthy practice of toilet squatting into our day-to-day western lives.
It also provides a safe, hygenic, flexible and low cost workplace solution for employers seeking culturally appropriate toilet facilities for staff from diverse ethnic backgrounds.
