It all started in May, 2010 Judy Edwards was using a makeshift squatting platform of boxes and phone books. Although the platform worked, it was unstable and inconvenient. She and her husband Bill asked their son Bobby to develop a better solution. Bobby consulted with doctors, nurses, alignment specialists and natural health experts to identify the perfect angle, height and position ideal for squatting. The design is now the Squatty Potty – the solution for fast, proper, and easy elimination.
