This bamboo potty stool makes your shitting experience & bowel movements more relaxing and easier. It elevates your feet and transforms your posture to a squatting-like posture, providing relief for people who suffer from constipation, hemorrhoids, IBS, or other colon issues. By realigning your hips and rectal canal, pelvic muscles are relaxed, enabling your colon to empty more efficiently and with less strain. When not in use, it can be folded down to 1 1/4″ H for easy storage. Unfolded, it measures 17″ W x 11″ D x 7″ H.
