New Toilet Design May Shorten Restroom Waits

February 18, 2020

Facilities that host crowds, such as entertainment and sports venues, face challenges moving a large amount of people through their public restrooms. A new toilet design may speed up restroom patrons, European Cleaning Journal reports.

The toilet, created in the United Kingdom, slopes forward at 13 degrees, so users need to brace their legs to avoid sliding off. As this stance causes discomfort in the leg muscles after several minutes, restroom patrons are motivated to spend less time in the restroom stall.

The toilet’s creator said he was motivated after noticing that restroom stalls often become a private texting and social media space for people seeking a break from work. He also believes the slanting toilet may have a health advantage over traditional toilets, which can contribute to weakened pelvis muscles caused by restroom users sitting too long.
