Go to the bathroom
sit on the toilet and answering two things (the call of nature and WhatsApp messages) is a modern activity that we all take for granted. The problem (for Mahabir Gill, at least) is that there are people who spend a lot of time in there, occupying a place that others need with varying degrees of urgency and wasting hours of work.
Mahabir Gill is jumping to international fame for these days as the founder of StandardToilet, a company that created a toilet with a particular design detail: est
leaning forward about 13 degrees. By being slightly down, forces the legs to support the weight of the body and leave it well placed on the toilet.
It is a minimal effort, but after a few minutes (five, Gill calculates) it makes it annoying to continue sitting on that toilet and forces the user to stand, release it and continue with the day. Gill says that the inclination is designed to avoid any type of injury. It is not clear, however, how it takes with another worldwide trend in these issues,
He proposes to use a bench to lift the feet while sitting on the porcelain and simulate the squatting position, which facilitates the bowel movement.
Some say that the chairs of some bars have a similar design, perhaps not as pronounced, to prevent diners from installing for hours at a table. But this is about saving employers money (
Gill specifically tells Wired) and prevent people from feeling comfortable sitting on the toilet (
especially if it is one of those Japanese with a thousand functions, padded and warm) and abuse the situation to spend half a day in there, especially in offices or public places with few places and much demand to sit.
