The Welles Step is a specialized foot stool that positions your body so that you are squatting when you sit on the toilet. Squatting, by supporting the abdominal wall and the bowel as we bear down, brings with regards to a more finish bowel evacuation. In this way, people who use the Welles Step tend to have less hemorrhoids, hernias, anal fissures, varicose veins and use less laxatives. The Welles Step is commended for both men and women, young and old alike, and even children. Pregnant women will find it comforting and relieving. The Wells Step is a simple, but unfathomed solution toward alleviating the suffering of bowel troubles afflicting persons of all ages. Complete bowel evacuation leads to robust health. The Welles Step has been cautiously designed by Dr. Welles taking into full account the anatomical structure of the humane body, quintessentially the pelvis, the digestive tract and the colon; the precise geometric angle necessary for finish bowel evacuation with the application of the laws of anatomy and physics. Sturdy design conveniently fits beneath the toilet when not in use – merely slide out when needed. VIEW ALL PRODUCTS BY Welles

Fantastic Product Everyone Should Own
I can’t say enough about The Welles Step. It’s an amazing piece of equipment that everyone should own. I had a discomfort issue like so many Americans. This product has completely resolved that issue and it’s even made me more in tune with understanding when I need to use the bathroom. It’s a miraculous product. The modern toilet terrible for our bowels. The Welles Step corrects these problems and aligns our body back into the normal position we are supposed to be using when going.

This product is amazing. The modern toilet has taken a most miserable toll on western society. So many of our colonic ailments (hemorrhoids, bowel cancer, constipation) are not found in parts of the world where people defecate in a squatting position. This foot rest is an elegant solution to the problem. Much easier than squatting (our ankle tendons have lost their flexibility) and much more discreet than systems that provide a structure to place above the toilet. It allows your body to eliminate more fully in the position it was designed to be in. It’s fabulous!!!

dont buy this item (at least not at this price)
By David Betesh
first of all the price is ridiculous. I guess they are pricing this as a medical device which is always 4 or 5 times the price it should be.
second the design is very poor, the enamel cracks off and rusts very badly. Your entire bathroom floor will be covered with chipped rust. also they give you 2 little screws to hold a wood piece, of course that wood piece gets rotted with fallen urine over time, (when men use the toilet in the standing position). i still use this, but i was very unhappy with the construction and price, besides i am still not convinced it does wonders for releiving bowel strain. if you are constipated, you are going to stay constipated, stool or no stool. if this would have been about $25 like it should be then i might up my rating to 3 or 4 stars.
