  • Patent number: 11446174
    Abstract: A skin care device includes a receptacle that includes an outlet port and defines a chamber that extends from the outlet port to a sump, which is defined by an impermeable portion of the receptacle, and is disposed for receiving one end of a tube inserted through the outlet port. Wicking material is received over a permeable portion of the receptacle for location over a particular region of the skin. When a vacuum is applied at the sump, the particular region is cooled by evaporative cooling when the particular region is moist. The device includes at least one vent that is so disposed as to promote air flow and to prevent a vacuum from occurring at a portion of the skin adjacent where the wicking material is located while the vacuum is applied. The device can be used for wound care and to dispose wicking material within a skin fold.

  • Patent number: 11090183
    Abstract: A container for collecting liquid for transport, comprising: a web of flexible porous material defining at least a portion of a chamber in which liquid can be collected for transport. The chamber is configured to receive a tube in a position within the chamber that enables the tube to transport liquid from the chamber while the liquid collects within the chamber upon being drawn through the web when a partial vacuum is applied within the chamber via the tube. The porous material comprises a web of spun plastic fibers, such as spun polyester fibers. In one embodiment, the web of spun plastic fibers is configured to define an elongated portion of the chamber. In another embodiment, a backing of non-permeable material covers a portion of the web and is so combined with the web as to further define the chamber.

  • Patent number: 10973678
    Abstract: A system suitable for collecting and transporting urine away from the body of a person or animal may include an assembly having a fluid impermeable casing, a fluid permeable membrane, and a fluid permeable support. A reservoir is defined by the fluid permeable support. The fluid permeable membrane can define a cavity. The casing can define an opening such that the cavity is accessible via the opening. The assembly can also include an outlet in fluidic communication with the reservoir. The assembly can be arranged such that a user's penis can be disposed through the opening with the urethral opening disposed within the cavity and such that a fluid can flow into the body from the urethral opening of the user's penis, collect in the reservoir, and flow out of the outlet.

  • Patent number: 10952889
    Abstract: A container for collecting liquid for transport, includes a shell having a port adapted for receiving tubing and configured to define a chamber that has a window in an exterior surface of the shell. The window is so positioned that when a wicking material, which is adapted to be applied against a particular source of moisture and which is so dimensioned that when the wicking material is received within the shell and applied through the window to the particular source of moisture, the shell is at least partially closed so that when tubing is inserted through the port into the shell chamber and the shell is otherwise closed a partial vacuum can be created within the shell chamber to draw moisture into the shell chamber through the wicking material for collection as a liquid within the shell chamber for transport from the shell chamber via the tubing.

  • Patent number: 10850014
    Abstract: A liquid collection device for use in drawing liquid from an opening in a body of a person or an animal. The device includes a perforated container, and an outlet port. The perforated container defines a chamber shaped to collect liquid drawn into the chamber through perforations in the container. The outlet port enables liquid to be drawn from the chamber by a partial vacuum applied at the outlet port. The container is configured to receive wicking material that covers at least some of the perforations and is also configured and dimensioned for placement of the wicking material in, or over approximately an exposed breadth of, an opening in a person or an animal, so that upon said placement of the container with at least some of the perforations being covered by said wicking material, when a partial vacuum is applied at the outlet port, liquid can be drawn from said opening through the wicking material and into the chamber and from the chamber through the outlet port.

  • Patent number: 10376406
    Abstract: A urine collection device has a chamber assembly, which includes a layer of wicking material and porous material. The porous material is configured to form a chamber in which urine can be collected for transport; and the wicking material is disposed about the porous material. The chamber has a port for receiving a tube so that urine collected within the chamber can be transported from the chamber by being drawn from the chamber when a partial vacuum is applied within the chamber via the received tube. The chamber assembly is so dimensioned and configured that opposing portions of the assembly are sufficiently adjacent as to define an opening through which the head of a penis can be inserted. A layer of impermeable material is so attached to the chamber assembly as to cover one side of the opening and thereby provide a receptacle for receiving the head of an inserted penis.

  • Patent number: 10376407
    Abstract: A device for collecting urine flowing from a penis in such a manner that the urine can be transported from the device as the urine is being collected. The device includes a flexible layer of porous material; flexible wicking material disposed on one side of the layer of porous material; and a flexible layer of impermeable material secured to the periphery of the other side of the layer of porous material and so covering the other side of the layer of porous material as to define a chamber between the layer of porous material and the layer of impermeable material. Urine can be collected within the chamber for transport through a tube extending into the chamber through a port in the layer of impermeable material. The device includes a receptacle for receiving the head of a penis.
