Abstract: A bedpan providing ease of use, comfort, and cleanability. The bedpan includes a body member defining a reservoir shaped and dimensioned for receiving bodily waste. The body member includes a closed base section adapted for retaining bodily wasted deposited within the bedpan and an open support section. The support section includes a central opening providing access to the reservoir defined by the body member. The central opening is defined by first and second inwardly inclined walls extending from a first end of the body member toward a second end of the body member. The support section further includes a forward support surface adjacent the first end of the body member. The forward support surface has a forward end adjacent the base member and a rearward end adjacent the first and second inwardly inclined walls, wherein the forward support surface is generally horizontal and tapers downwardly as it extends toward the base section.
Abstract: A urinal device for use by female persons not having the use of their legs while seated in a chair or wheelchair. The urinal device has a pie-slice shaped shallow pan with a swollen, bulbous cross-section lip completely around the periphery thereof and a perforated splash plate. A handle is affixed to the pan opposite the narrow end of the pan so that the impaired person may insert the pan beneath her body without lifting her body or legs from the chair seat. The pan is continuously drained during use by means of a drainage hose connected to a urine receiving container.
Abstract: A conventional bedpan having sidewalls topped by an outwardly curved seat contains, in the forward end, a cabinet with a wall opening into the bedpan and containing a large extendible tube which may be withdrawn to function as a urinal for male patients.
Abstract: A portable bedpan operated by pump comprising a body including a water box, a remnant box, two filth boxes, and a vacuum pump, a pan engagable with the body, a pushing cylinder located in the body for pushing the bedpan and the front end of cylinder being detachably connected with the bedpan, a plurality of hoses contractibly connected between the first filth box and the bedpan, the first filth box sucking filth of the bedpan, the second filth box being interconnected with the first filth box so as to receive overflowing filth from the first filth box, a remnant box for accumulating remnant filth of the pan bottom, and plurality of valves installed at each connecting hose for regulating the fluid flow in connection with the pumping operation.
Abstract: A urinal having a semi-rigid housing is useable by either a male or a female to receive urine discharged by a person whether in a seated or in a supine position. A cappable opening to the collector includes a spout configured to receivingly support a penis when used by a male and the combination of the spout and opening is configured to develop a seal extending from the vaginal opening to a point above the urethra to prevent urine seepage when used by a female. Opposed sides of the collector are concave to mate with the curvature of the user's thighs and help maintain the urinal in place during use. A specially configured handle at the upper rear end of the housing aids in manipulating the urinal into and out of position of use and in minimizing the danger of inadvertent tipping.
