FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Utah-Based Company Develops Self-Emptying, Hand-held Urinals
Bountiful (April 10, 2017) Bountiful-based Advantage Urinal Systems has developed a superior line of self-emptying, hand-held urinals for women, men and children to reduce the risk of infections and nighttime falls as well as providing a more restful night’s sleep for user and caregiver, alike.
“These are one-of-a-kind, personal urinals that are easy to use,
easy to clean and easy to carry. Many users and caregivers regain
a feeling of independence and dignity while greatly reducing the
potential for dangerous falls or infections.” said Advantage Urinal
Systems developer and CEO, Larry Garlock.
The patented design is available in models for women, men, children, even men with contracted anatomy. The urinal quickly self-empties into an attached reservoir bag where, due to an anti-reflux chamber, the fluid remains. The unit will not spill, even if dropped. Use of Advantage Systems virtually eliminates the threat of skin or bladder infection or loss of bladder memory, a problem all too common with indwelling catheters.
About Advantage Urinals Systems
As a caretaker, Mr. Garlock recognized that multiple night time bathroom trips prevented his patient and himself from having an adequate nights sleep. Catheters have well-known problems; fit, leakage, and user discomfort, in addition the those mentioned. Typical hand-held urinals need to be emptied after each use. Mr. Garlock set out to find a solution, the result is numerous patents and a new kind of urinal. The system utilizes a large reservoir bag which won’t need to be emptied until morning even if used multiple times through the night. Fluid drains quickly into the bag where it stays until it’s ready to be emptied. The system is easy to use, easy to empty and easy to clean. Thousands of Advantage Systems are already in use in Hospitals, rehab centers and personal care facilities.
