AbstractOmni Measurement Systems, Inc. of South Burlington, Vermont has designed a comfortable, automated bladder relief system for female and male aircrew members flying long-distance missions in aircrafts without toilet facilities. The system does not use anytype of catheter, is compact and can be worn so that it is not visible to others. The pilot can chose between two hands-free and odor-free methods of urine collection: either an attached bag or detachable bag. The system keeps female pilots dry afterurination, unlike the adult diapers currently being worn. For male pilots, the system not only keeps them dry, but requires significantly less time and attention to use than currently available "piddle packs". The Omni Bladder Relief System could easily beadapted for use by ambulatory, bedridden and wheelchair-bound adults with urinary incontinence. It can be used by civilian, hang glider and glider pilots whose aircraft lack toilet facilities, and long-distance truckers and race car drivers whose vehicleslack toilet facilities. It can be adapted for use by rescue workers, firefighters and other professionals who cannot remove their protective suits to urinate. It can also be used by male and female ground troops, and soldiers in tanks.
