Squat Toilet Adapter

About seven months ago I read a very interesting post on LATOC with title
Psychological effect of cars and sitting in chairs. This post inspired me to come up with the idea of squat toilet adapter.

In most of Asia, squatting is a way of life. Squat toilet can heal constipation and many other health problems. The benefits of squat toilet is well documented in Squat - Don't Sit post.

In western world, squat toilet is near impossible to find. Folks living in apartments can't change their toilets even if they want to.

This wooden frame structure is made from 2X4 and panels which I got from local hardware store. When this structure is placed over the existing toilet, it is possible to use the toilet in a squatting position.
