Featured invention at the DaVinci Inventor Showcase 2011
The Gota’ Go Personal Care Device is a concealed, catheterlike device to accommodate, permit, and retain male urination in situations where a bathroom break is not possible or desirable. The design intent is that the Gota’ Go Personal Care Device would have wide application in situations ranging from male incontinence to law enforcement to long-haul trucking.
The Gota’Go™ Personal Care Device is similar to a jockey-strap and has an elastic cotton waistband (sized Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large), fitted with hip or buttocks straps that supports an under-crotch support similar to that offered by a pair of briefs.
The male’s penis is inserted into a soft molded rubber or plastic sheath, the end of which would open into a small-diameter, pliable plastic or rubber surgical tube. This outflow tube is equipped with a synthetic round-the-thigh strap fitted with Velcro closures, surgical rubber or plastic.
The Gota’Go™ Personal Care Device could be worn on either leg. The upper end of the receptacle bag is fitted with a one-way release valve for emptying the accumulated contents.
While the basic Gota’Go™ Personal Care Device is equipped with a 9-ounce collecting bag, the urine-collecting bag could be manufactured and sold in various capacities, depending upon the user’s needs. The entire Gota’Go™ Personal Care Device system would be disposable or washable and reusable, depending again on the consumers preference.
