A Biffy? Many people ask how and why we came up with such a different product and name. Well, the story begins with a doctor trying to improve the quality of cleanliness for a patient. A young boy who was born with congenital Phycomelia, a condition which means he has no arms below the elbows, had a difficult time cleaning himself. The doctor, Warren Smith, started thinking of ways that he could help this boy clean himself after using the restroom, and the Biffy was born. After developing the device he realized that this was not only good for the disabled but for everyone – we all want and need to be clean.
The next step was to name this new invention and that idea came from one of Dr. Smith’s patients as well. A British woman excused herself one day to go and use the biffy. What is a biffy? The patient explained that in England, that is one of the names they use for the bathroom. Dr. Smith liked the name so much and thought it was so unique that he decided that would be the name of his new invention.
The original Biffy was a rough version of the sleek Biffy we offer today and as it helped out the original patient as was intended it also it also started the process of bringing the Biffy to you our customers. We can proudly say that the Biffy has become the #1 Bidet to have in your bathroom for cleanliness, reliability and ease of use! We cannot tell you how many people have told us “I love my Biffy!”
The Brain Behind the Biffy®
We want to tell you a little bit about the person who invented a product who has changed the lives of thousands. Dr. Warren L. Smith is one of the founders of Family Doctors of Boulder City, where he has remained in practice since 1980. He graduated from the University of Arizona School of Medicine, after which he served his residency at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Smith has been certified as a family physician by the American Board of Family Practice since 1980. Though he maintains his practice in Boulder City, Nevada, he is also licensed to practice medicine in Utah, California, and Arizona. Dr. Smith was also recognized as the Nevada Family Physician of the Year in 1986. He is trained and certified to perform many in-office surgical procedures, including vasectomies. He is one of Nevada’s foremost doctors in performing colonoscopies and EGDs. So, as you can see, the invention of the Biffy is just one more way Dr. Smith has found to change people’s lives for the better.
