The Squatty Potty was the first of many toilet stools now on the market. Toilet stools help remedy the unnatural position for pooping caused by Western toilet thrones. Our digestive systems were designed around the squat for pooping, not the seated position where our knees are parallel to our hips. The Squatty Potty forces the users knees to an elevated position, mimicking the squatting position, while providing a comfortable footrest and compatibility with any Western toilet. Furthermore, it has a simple but elegant design that is meant to be easily tucked around the toilet for storage.
