The PottyCap is a portable urinal developed by a physical therapist. The need stems from the number of women who enter long term care facilities and are either in the process of losing or have lost the ability to control their urination, thereby causing multiple problems from wet garments to falls trying to get to the bathroom. The most common problem for women in health care settings is bedpan usage, because of the unnatural position of lying on their backs to urinate. While female urinals exist, patients have reported they are difficult to use.
Thus the PottyCap was created.
