The design and shape of this basin are new; it is especially made to fit the male interthigh position. This is quite important, because this position in a male is a triangle with the base at the knees; in other words, the narrowed pelvis and the relative position of the heads of the femur in a male demand a quite different shape for this kind of basin than were it used for a female.

Another new point in this basin, and an obvious advantage, is that the splash, at any angle, is toward the floor of the basin.
