The answer to your question is as follows:

One may use western style toilet but he should be cautious about impurities splashing on the body and clothes. It is possible to bend on the toilet to avoid splashes from the toilet bowl water. He can also wipe toilet seat with tissue paper or clean it with water and sit on it to relieve himself. He should make sure that no drops of urine splashes onto the body or clothes. If he is not able to squat low enough or sit on high pan and he has no option but to stand then he may urinate standing. It is makruh to urinate standing without a valid reason. Therefore, this should be the last option as the chances of urine splashing are greater and also it is difficult to make istinja in this manner.
(And Allah knows best)
