In July 2019, UK-based risk assessment software Protecting.co conducted a study and found many people were spending way too much time in the bathroom while at work… up to 28 minutes, if you can believe it.
According to the Daily Mail, researchers found that companies could be losing up to two and a half hours of productivity every week for each employee!
Now, there’s a new invention that intends to decrease the length of employee bathroom breaks.
The ‘StandardToilet’ features a slanted toilet seat that tilts forward by 13 degrees. The creator says this signature slant increases leg strain, not unlike a “gentle squat thrust.”
In turn, the StandardToilet claims it can also improve posture and decrease the chances of hemorrhoids and weak pelvic muscles.
