Utah mother and son Judy and Bobby Edwards have invented the Squatty Potty. It’s a toilet stool designed to relax the puborectalis muscle for “for fast, easy elimination.” It can help with straining issues such as hemorrhoids, pelvic organ prolapse, constipation, and IBS. One of Squatty Potty’s most vocal supporters is TV and radio personality Howard Stern who says, “Squatty Potty changed my life. I get a full release. I do!”
The Squatty Potty comes in a variety of designs, too. The stools come in a molded plastic ($25), sculpted plywood ($60), adjustable bamboo ($80), and there’s even an inflatable Squatty Potty ($30), for when you have to go, on the go.
