What is FUSION?

FUSION is a height-adjustable toilet stool that helps you squat to poop better and live well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to use the FUSION?

It is simple and intuitive. Sit on the toilet as you normally do. Pull out the FUSION to a comfortable position. Adjust the toe-piece height if and as needed, and then gently load your feet and lean forward a bit. After the use store it back under the toilet bowel. Easy enough?

 

Five reasons why get a FUSION 

FUSION's patent pending design offers unique functionality and experience, for everyone. Listed below are some key points.

#1. Squatting is better, FUSION makes it easier

It's no rocket science. Sitting creates a natural kink in the colon, to maintain continence. Squatting posture straightens the colon for a clean release. This is just how we are designed. Really.

Sit vs. squat; science behind squatting

Thus, sitting on the toilet is no good for constipation, hemorrhoids, pelvic floor dysfunction, urinary infections, and many other colon diseases. A simple switch to squatting can have a big impact, and FUSION makes it easier than ever. Remember the old saying, prevention is better than cure … in this case funner too!  

#2. FUSION is height adjustable, with ease

No tools required, no cumbersome mechanisms, no need of having different footstools for different-height family members, and no need to compromise on the squat!

You can easily adjust the toe-platform height to suit your height, experience, and taste! Thus, whether you are a beginner who never squatted before, or a pro-squatter, FUSION will serve you well.  

#3. FUSION = many in one

FUSION is like four different-height footstools + a massager, all combined in one elegant design, for the price and convenience of just one!

4 different levels + a massager

At the lowest level it works like the original TURBO Stool™, at the highest level it works like a flat-top stool, and then you can adjust the height to everything in between!   

#4. Now you can have a 'designer' FUSION!

Treat your feet with a designer masterpiece! Well deserved.

The designer option adds a whole new dimension to the FUSION ... a dimension that you can define and relate to. It can spark your morning, every single day!  

#5. Got bum? Get a FUSION?

Isn't that a good enough reason?! On a more serious note, we all poop. So why be shy, lets admit it and get over it. With the form and functionality of FUSION, no more hiding the stool from guests, no more embarrassments, and no more excuses. It will be a conversation piece ... a bathroom masterpiece!

Poop with style, and who knows, you may even inspire your fellow beings!

Product usage, specs, and sizing

Sizing: Because of the height adjustability, FUSION comes in only one size, and one size fits all -- this is one of the areas where we have excelled compared to others. It is worth mentioning here that the height can be adjusted easily and on the fly, there are no cumbersome mechanisms and no tools needed! Thus everyone in a household can enjoy optimal squatting based on individual height, experience, and taste … no compromise!

Our journey and current status

Our journey started back in 2012, and after several twists and turns we launched our flagship TURBO Stool in Jan 2016. During our TURBO campaign, we had also revealed the first FUSION model. Since then we have redesigned it to make it stronger, lighter, durable, and more affordable – of course, without compromising the quality.

What you see in our Kickstarter video is the real deal, the actual product, not just a prototype. We have gone through many concepts and design tweaks to get here, what we think is an optimal design. We have already done all the hard work and eliminated the risks. Tooling is also completed, and we are ready for production. But to get to this point we have spent countless hours, used up all our savings, and taken some loans. Now we need funding to purchase the raw material in volume, so that we can make it available at an affordable price to all.

Risks and challenges

TL;DR: When we launched the TURBO Stool, it was our very first product and we had only prototypes, and no manufacturing partners and no tooling – and we did fine. With the FUSION we are miles ahead, so we really do not anticipate any issues.

A more formal pitch: Anything worth doing has risks and challenges. However we have done everything we can to minimize those. We have literally gone through several concepts, extensive model tests, prototypes, and we have the tooling ready! What you see in the Kickstarter video is the real product from our test runs, they aren't just prototypes. So we are as ready as one can be.
