I don't honestly think this think is a miracle worker and it won't suddenly whip your bowels into tip top shape, but it will help with elimination. We both agreed it didn't make you go unless you had to go (which saddened me a bit, albeit it was an unreasonable expectation). However, it did make 'to go' a little easier. Also, clean up (ahem) was also much easier. So maybe it's eco-friendly in more ways than one (bamboo + less paper needed!).
The looks of this are quite nice. It blends in well without looking like something that belongs in a hospital. It tucks under the toilet well so you can sit (or stand for guys) without it being in your way. Pull it out when you need it. I mention this in the video, but when assembling it, do NOT tighten all the bolts UNTIL you're finished. You will likely need to put torque at some points while tightening to make sure it doesn't wobble. Overall, I'm very happy with this!
