    clinically speaking, it is true that squatting opens up the colon and allows for a more 'complete' evacuation. many colo-rectal physicians recommend raising your feet up on a small stool while you're on the toilet to allow for a modified 'squat' position. i've tried it and it works.

    Handing the kids toilet paper as napkins was a nice touch.

    It sounds like a line from one of the cheesy sci-fi/comedy/porn stories that I keep blocking out but never writing.

    Ha! I just saw this company pitch its idea on Shark Tank!

    Great show, by the way.

    Howard Stern has been advertising the Squatty Potty for years on his show, even telling his audience he uses one, with great results.... icon_biggrin.gif

    first time I ran into a standing toilet was skiing in Sankt Moritz. We'd crossed into northern Italy on a day trip, asnd I was like... came right back out and asked the driver how to use it.

    I seem to recall this principle was established scientifically and medically in the mainstream some several decades ago. There was an entire porcelain facility developed to replace an existing toilet, which involved supporting the entire squatting position with a "fitted" shape to support the back of thighs and the calves. It did not look like a typical toilet at all. It was written up in national publications, although I don't recall exactly which, but something rings true that in Parade Magazine (back in its heyday) may have been one place.

    This footstool incarnation of the principle is certainly much less expensive and is easily adaptable to existing facilities.

    One thing that I noticed when visiting "Fallingwater" in PA is that Frank Lloyd Wright installed super low toilets in the house. Someone on the tour asked a docent about it. Evidently, it was requested by the Kaufmanns for the reasons mentioned by the squatty potty folks.

    A guy did a series on this and digestive health a few years ago. They were referred to as poop boxes, but then he featured the squatty potty on his channel.
