Question: What is the different between squatting and elevating?
A. We choose to talk about the features of our product in a manner that we feel is more in align with our message of elevating ones' health and life. Squatting is a verb that conjures up all sorts of interesting visions in ones' head, and we choose not to be associated with the "visual" of squatting. We'll leave that door open to our competition. Elevating on an easyGopro is different than squatting on a toilet platform. Squatting is something you do outdoors and requires spreading your legs and lowering your buttocks down to your heels. We don't go that far and we don't think you want to either. It's not necessary as results are similar when elevating at a comfortable distance on a toilet stool that is 7.5" high. You could say we eliminated the squat also.
Q: Where is easyGopro sold?
A: We currently sell on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, and the entire EU as well as Amazon.ca and Amazon.jp and right here - which is where we prefer for you to buy our stool. Why? Because you are guaranteed to be buying direct from the brand and not from a 3rd party seller that may be used - YUCK. We do list on ebay.com off and on, and has the digital world would have it - we can't stop 3rd party sellers - so just know - we as the Brand only sell here, on easyGokids.com and on Amazon, period.
Q: Are the labels removable?
A: Yes. We use a special BOPP film material that are extremely easy to remove and leave no residue. You can leave them on or take them off - we love our product's sleek and discreet design without labels once in your home - but don't forget to tell your people that it's easyGopro and not that other "squat" brand.
Q: How is easyGopro different from Squatty Potty?
A: Squatty Potty, (that other "squat" brand) is designed as a squatting platform and is large in size and shape. Our design is patented in 5 countries and was designed by Gecco Vision an ergonomic product design firm that takes their design research seriously...unlike other toilet stools that claim to be "original" and are oversized or look clinical - easyGopro excels in size, shape, function, quality and design. Plus it comes in awesome colors!
Q: Is it safe for potty training?
A: Our stool was not designed as a potty training device. But, with close supervision and hand holding, yes it is safe. We don’t recommend ever leaving a child unsupervised in a bathroom.
Q: Why are the rubber feet stapled?
A. Our design is so elegant and minimalist that the rubber feet are delicate in nature and thus do not have the typical girth of rubber feet. The feet need to be stapled to insure they are secure without disrupting the aesthetics of the overall design and function.
Q: Why should kids rest their feet?
A: Research shows 60% of school age kids do not use the toilet at school. Childhood constipation continues to be a growing concern as the causes are different from adult constipation. Dangling feet is proving to be the largest contributor as it may take up to 6-10 years before your child’s feet reach the ground. The physical discomfort and inability to create proper pressure for elimination leads not only to severe constipation, potential prolapsed rectum and enlarged colon but fear of the toilet in general and emotional difficulty for child and parent. Until now the transitional years have not been addressed – with a simple branding shift from easyGopro® to easyGokids™ we are able to embrace the problem while offering a different use than what easyGopro® offers adults.
Q. I have a different toilet stool, why should I buy easyGopro?
A: We have simply the most compact and aesthetically pleasing design that works perfectly and has given 100's of thousands of people relief from their ailments. You can read our reviews on Amazon.com.
Q: I have a low toilet in one bathroom and comfort height in another, do I need to buy different heights?
A: No. We designed our toilet stool to work with every toilet on the market.
Q: How long before I see results?
A: Most of our customers experience a difference immediately, but everyone is different so take a little time to adjust and then watch the magic.
Q: Is it okay to use easyGopro™ when doing number 1?
A: Yes. It can help empty the bladder more completely by elevating the feet and eliminating with a pelvic tilt.
Q: Is it okay to use if I’m pregnant?
A: Absolutely! We've heard from several expecting Mothers that using easyGopro made a huge difference for them in their comfort of elimination.
Q: How do I clean it?
A: Clean with water and soap, then dry. You can also use a ready wipe to clean.
Q: What makes easyGopro® different from easyGokids™?
A: Nothing but the labels and logo. You see, we feel kids are special and respond better by taking ownership – creating a sub brand that allowed us to address the serious problem of dangling feet and childhood constipation was important to our mission. Kids need to rest their feet, while adults need to elevate their feet. Two very different problems are solved with one cool toilet stool. easyGokids™ and easyGopro™ are the same height, length, width and weight. All labels are easy to remove.
Q: Why can’t I just use a stack of books or step stool?
A: You can, but why would you? Books will get in the way, be ruined, and are potentially dangerous. A step stool may work but it’s not necessarily the right height, doesn’t have a slant, and doesn’t store neatly away under the toilet when not in use. You can see a comparison at the bottom of “Form and Function” page of other stools.
Q: What makes easyGopro different from other products?
A: Other toilet stools on the market are big and bulky and don’t guarantee to fit your toilet like we do. Here are a few comps:
- Smaller Size: 17″ x 8″ x 7.5″ vs. 21.5 x 12.5″ x 7″ or 9″
- Compact & Convenient: Fits all toilets and bathrooms guaranteed – there’s no guessing or measuring.
- Professional Ergonomic Design: clean, unobtrusive
- Light Weight: 1.3 pounds vs. 5.4 pounds – safe for kids.
Q: My husband is 6’10” will it work for him?
A: Yes! This is the importance of professionals that specialize in ergonomic design and research. We developed a footrest for all ages, body types, and heights. In fact our designer is 6’8″!
Q: Can my kids use it as a step stool at the sink?
A: We have had customers tell us that their kids use it to brush their teeth, wash their hands, etc. Some customers even buy an extra one for under their desk to elevate their feet while working. And others use it in the bathroom to paint their toenails or wash their feet. It’s truly a handy bathroom stool with health benefits.
