Though bathroom aids can be helpful for clients of any age, the Squatty Potty team is aware that their products are frequently used by older clients, and those with pre-existing health conditions. Their new folding bamboo stool is designed to be ready to use out of the box, with no assembly, installation, or tools required.

Originally launched in 2013, the Squatty Potty is a simple device that changes the way clients position their bodies when using the bathroom, which medical professionals suggest results in less bodily strain and more complete eliminations. The new bamboo version of the stool helps to reposition the client’s legs from a 90-degree to a 35-degree angle, to naturally loosen the puborectalis muscle.

Research suggests that while human bodies are designed to eliminate waste while squatting, most toilets put the user in a 90-degree position, which pinches the puborectalis muscle, and makes the process more strenuous. The Squatty Potty corrects this by repositioning the user’s legs in a manner similar to how humans would have squatted before the invention of the modern toilet, relaxing the relevant muscles, and allowing waste to flow smoothly. A third-party study has determined that up to 85% of users find their bowels empty more completely when using a stool, than without. The same study also indicated that up to 71% of users believe their bathroom visits are shorter in duration, due to the use of the device.

The new bamboo version of the popular bathroom aid is made almost entirely out of sustainable bamboo, with a velour dust cover for storage or travel. While this version of the Squatty Potty is collapsible, it uses sturdy, simple hinges, which can easily be flattened or extended by most users, even if they suffer from mobility restrictions.

One satisfied client said, “Nice design upgrade to the famous comfort. We love the style and fold-away function. Also, my boyfriend had never used a Squatty Potty before and he called it “life-changing”. He’s not wrong.”
