SIT LESS, SQUATT MORE.

"We were not meant to sit on toilets" proctologist Michael Freilich famously told TIME magazine in 1978, after President Carter had hemorrhoid troubles. "We were meant to squat in the field".
 
 
 
Your body is designed to eliminate waste by squatting, not sitting. The reason for this is a bit of biological geometry. It is a known and proven fact that the toilets we use in our western society are a contributing factor to irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids and even chronic bowel diseases through an unfavorable ergonomic posture of our 90° seating position.
 
 
A foot stool put in front of the toilet forces us into a healthier squat position which happens to provide an effective quick fix to the issue.

MEDICAL BACKGROUND:

The puborectalis muscle forms a sling around the lower rectum. Our body uses this muscle to prevent the sphincter from too much strain.

 

SITTING:
 

sitting

 

Sitting and standing tightens the puborectalis muscle like a bend in a garden hose, causing blockage to the rectum.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 


SQUATTING:

Squatting is our natural defecation posture since prehistory. it relaxes the puborectalis muscle allowing for an easier, faster and healthier elimination.
We hope you establish a new healthy habit by using your stuul regularly.

"Designing a better Squatty Potty is Stuul's business, and we can certainly say that have that end covered. Stuul is the toilet stool that you're not embarrased to keep out. It's signature, one-of-a-kind look is not only good on the eyes, but also holistically amazing for the gut. I have to say, since using Stuul, the bar has truly been raised for bathroom products everywhere."

"This unique toilet stool design looks like a sculpture: is out of the way when not in use. It doesn’t come with the strange stigma many people still associate with toilet stools today through its neutral and unobtrusive architecture."

"The discreet design makes this toilet stool a much more attractive option that the infamous Squatty Potty. That material makes the Stuul comfortable and keeps it from adding any wear and tear to your tiles."

"Stuul® stands for the “toilet stool revolution” Made in Germany. The designers follow their great role model, the squatty potty from the US, but also very clearly differentiate from it – especially with regard to the design and the choice of material."

"While, there are competitor products out there that do something similar, none look quite as discrete and may we even say sexy than Stuul does."

"Very few of these toilet stools are particularly stylish. Let alone have they deserved a design prize. Stuul is completely different: Stuul combines the health benefits of a conventional toilet stool with the visual appeal of a modern design object. Above all, Stuul is convincing in practical tests: Since both footrests can be positioned flexibly, everyone is guaranteed to find the most comfortable position for defecation."

"Another attribute of the Stuul that makes it so classy is that it costs about one hundred American dollars, so it's a particularly great bathroom accessory for those of you who shit gold.

"All-in-all, the Stuul toilet stool is an excellent product that accomplishes more than its competitors can. It is a fully functional set of toilet stools combined into an attractive sculpture that isn’t an eyesore and doesn’t take up two feet of bathroom space. The Stuul was designed holistically with every important factor in mind."
