You tap that illuminated area of floor with your foot and the ring rises. After you use the toilet and walk away a sensor detects that you’ve left and flushes and closes the ring and lid. The toilet can even tell if you were sitting or standing and adjust to flush with the least amount of water needed. If you had sat down for longer than a minute the toilet would have used a longer flush. For around $6.000 this experience and more can be yours.
Other areas of focus are on products that help bedridden people and disabled children use the restroom. But if you want to think further into the future a big area of excitement is in biometrics. The idea is that sensors in the toilet could analyze urine and fecal matter and track your bodily changes to provide useful health information or warn you of any problems.
The standard height for a toilet seat is 17 inches one inch lower than the standard height for a chair seat. However most manufacturers also produce at least some of their models in a “comfort” height which is typically 19 inches. From a medical perspective lower toilet seats are recommended for typical users. However for those who have trouble getting into and out of a sitting position (such as the elderly or even simply the very tall) the comfort-height seat may be easier to use. If you don’t find standard toilets to be an issue ignore the comfort option and worry more about the distance your toilet sits from the wall.
On the other hand some say that the frequent use of bidets especially warm-water bidets can disturb the normal microflora in the region below and even facilitate infection by fecal bacteria according to a research paper by Pankaj Garg and Pratiksha Singh published for the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons.
Taking the two-piece look to the extreme retro chain-pull toilets with tanks set higher on the wall give a certain old-world charm to a room. A well-made high-tank toilet will function just as well as a “close-coupled” (standard) option so the choice comes down to look more than mechanics in most situations although these toilets can be a little more expensive. If you want your toilet to be noticeable and charming instead of minimalist and hidden away this is an option to consider.
