Squat helper toilet / Health care device

Squat helper toilet
Squat helper toilet

This product is mainly aimed at the difficulty of users with inconvenient lower limbs to use the toilet. Compared with the traditional auxiliary method, this product adopts the auxiliary design of mechanical arm and retractable backrest. By providing support to the user's underarm and back, it simulates the behavior of humans helping each other to squat up, so that the user can be more safe and comfortable when using the toilet. In addition, AI can be added to this product,which not only allows users to control the product through voice, but also helps some users perform simple lower limb exercises to improve their lower limb health.
