Comfort Squat Pan / squat pan

Comfort Squat Pan
Comfort Squat Pan

Long-time squatting in the public toilet which uses traditional squat pans causes numbness and pain. Traditional squat pans only offer a horizontal area for users’ feet which cause all the people’s weight rests on the ankles and that makes the users’ feet and lower legs tired. In this way the blood circulation of the feet and lower legs will be slow down and several minutes later, the body becomes numb. Comfort squat pan makes the standing area a small slope so that the users can put whole bodies’ weight on their heels and then gravity was absorbed by the ground. Comfort squat pan also prevent the male users from peeing out of the squat pan.
