Meet Bill, Judy and Bobby Edwards, the designers and owners of Squatty Potty. They have always been a very health conscious family, but after a few years of some colon issues they were seeking to find a natural and inexpensive solution that would help correct and heal the problems they were experiencing. That's when they found a wonderful and simple solution.... “Squatting!” The simple knowledge of getting our knees up while going to the bathroom made a remarkable difference. But they couldn't find a good permanent solution for putting us into a squatting position. After trying different stools, books and buckets and stubbing their toes too many times, they decided there had to be a nicer looking and better solution to their problem. So that's when they came up with the Squatty Potty toilet stool. They feel they have designed the perfect toilet foot stool that wraps around your existing toilet and stores out of the way when not in use. It's their goal to change the way we poop, one 'stool' at a time.
