Analysis of advantages and disadvantages of seat toilet and squat toilet

Toilet seat defecation is more difficult, squatting toilet easily lead to numbness, dizziness. So which is better, sitting or squatting?

Today I am going to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of these two ways of toilet use. No more "difficulty choosing" when you go to the public restroom!


1. Squat Toilet


(1) Squatting defecation is more in line with the physiological structure of the human body.   Studies have confirmed that there is no significant increase in abdominal pressure during squatting.   At this time, the puborectal muscle is relaxed, and the rectum required for defecation should be small, which is conducive to fecal discharge;

(2) Squatting in the toilet for a long time, our legs will feel sour and numb.   In order to reduce the pain, many people will choose to make a quick decision.   So that can reduce toilet time, reduce the incidence of hemorrhoids;

(3) When people go to WC they prefer squatting toilets.  That's because the buttocks do not need to touch the toilet seat, which can reduce the chance of disease infection.


(1) For middle-aged and elderly people, the knee joint is already fragile. So it's easy to aggravate the degeneration of the knee joint if they often squatting in the toilet;

(2) When encountering constipation, squatting for a long time can easily lead to lower limb vascular and nerve compression, inducing or aggravating lower limb neurovascular lesions;

(3) Squatting toilet posture is easy to lead to dizziness, tinnitus, especially if you squat for a long time and then stand up, it is easy to appear postural hypotension, and even dizziness and coma.


2. Seat Toilet


(1) The toilet is a product of modern technology. Its biggest advantage is that it is comfortable and can relax the legs. This is a good option for older people;

(2) Sitting posture will not cause lower extremity neurovascular compression, which can avoid lower extremity neurovascular disease;

(3) Sitting for a long time will not cause dizziness, tinnitus, and there will be no postural hypotension when getting up, which is safer for the elderly.



(1) According to the physiological structure of the human body, the intestinal patency is reduced when sitting, and the abdominal pressure is reduced. If you encounter poor bowel movements, it is more difficult to stimulate intestinal excretion;

(2) Because the sitting position is more comfortable, people will do some other activities when they go to the bathroom. Such as reading books, smoking cigarettes, playing with mobile phones. This can lead to prolonged stool sitting and an increased risk of hemorrhoids;

(3) The skin is in direct contact with the seat when sitting on the toilet. If there are bacteria and parasites attached to the toilet, it may cause cross infection.

In contrast, if you are in a public bathroom, I recommend the squat toilet. If you only sit in the toilet, you can put a piece of toilet paper on the toilet seat to avoid contact with bacteria. If the home is a toilet, defecation can be placed under the foot of a small bench, the upper body slightly forward, which can increase abdominal pressure, help defecate.
