Fantastic customer service!
Because the Advantage Urinal System stays in bed with patients, and can remain there throughout the night, it helps to promote independence and dignity. Not only can the system be used by those who are bedridden, but can be used by those who are wheelchair bound or experiencing any medical condition that inhibits the ability to use the bathroom. For anyone in this type of condition, the Advantage Urinal system allows the individual to use it under his/her own power, maintain privacy and a feeling of self-reliance.
The noninvasive nature of all of The Advantage Urinal Systems is one of the most important features and benefits to those that use them. The loss of bladder memory can be permanent and cause ongoing difficulties and medical conditions. Both indwelling and external catheters can destroy the “urge” from the bladder (people can no longer feel the urge to void). Needless to say, this can lead to a negative effect on lifestyle and happiness.
I feel so fortunate to have found this product. My husband is incontenant and on a diaper since his spinal cord bleed left him nearly paraplegic. Until I found the Advantage Urinal System I had to get up every 3 hours each night to change him. Needless to say it was causing me sleepless nights and consequently drained my energy to face the next day. I can now get maybe 5 hours of consecutive sleep at night. It has made a tremendous difference in how I feel. I can better care for my husband if I am not so tired. I decided to order another urinal and accidently ordered the wrong one. The owner of the company was so kind as to call me and help me get the correct system. I will definitely recommend this to every one in the medical field that I come into contact with. Thank you Larry for inventing this great product. God Bless you for your caring heart.
The 1st stage (urinal part) of the Advantage Urinal is made of polypropylene, which is germ resistant. The closed cell rings on the Comfort Male, and the Comfort Female are also made of polypropylene. The ring feels much like a foam sponge, but does not absorb fluids. This is very important for it to remain germ resistant and for cleaning. A glass of warm soapy water rinsed through the system and drained out of the bag keeps the unit ready for use (note: it is a good idea to put a tablespoon of bleach in a glass of water and run it through the systems weekly).
The Advantage Urinal System is appropriate for a variety of medical reasons and conditions including those who have had strokes, amputations, fractured limbs or joint replacements, paraplegics, fraility, limited mobility, obesity, difficulty ambulating/walking, old age, etc. For anyone with a need for a personal urinal, the Advantage Urinal System is a must have.
