Foldable Toilet Stool For Better Digestion During 2024 Summer Travel Announced

Published April 16, 2024

With this announcement, the company offers a convenient, easy-to-carry travel accessory that can help individuals ensure a healthy bowel movement during travel. Bowel movement can be negatively impacted during travel, due to jet lag, changes in schedule, environment, diet, and lifestyle habits, as well as stress and anxiety around flying or other modes of transportation.

The Squatty Potty Porta Traveler, which folds down to be about the size of an electronic tablet, is designed to easily fit into a suitcase. When unfolded, this stool sits at the standard height of 7.75 inches, allowing users to lift their legs high enough while sitting on the toilet that their body takes a squat-like position. As the company explains, the ideal position for complete and healthy elimination is a squatting posture, as it aligns with the physics of the human body.

Squatty Potty also explains the concept behind its line of toilet stools, noting that sitting in a squatting position enables the puborectalis muscle to fully relax so that a healthy bowel movement can seamlessly occur. However, the Western toilet is designed to put people in a sitting position where the puborectalis muscle can only partially relax, affecting bowel movement.

The foldable Squatty Potty Porta Traveler is available in gray folding plastic. This doctor-recommended collapsible stool comes with a canvas bag so customers can discreetly carry it in their luggage or backpacks while traveling.
