SPIN UP / Closestool


Due to increased pregnant weeks, frequent urination and inconvenient action, inconvenient standing and sitting and security become main issues as gravidae use closestools. In order to guarantee gravidae to enjoy both security and comfort in using lavatory, “SPIN UP ” utilizes thread structure operation mechanism for gravidae to control height of lavatory seats without external forces by applying force with two legs for sliding to drive lavatory seats for 180 degrees of horizontal rotation, such that the load on knees and legs could be reduced when sitting. So, the goals for safe and effort saving standing aid and sitting aid are achieved.
