The new device has just been released to public domain. If you've ever got stuck in traffic or been caught short, then indeed this could be the device you've been waiting for. While it's far from the most glamorous of devices, the makers of this reusable urine bag claim it could end hours of misery. In fact, they claim the HeWee Go Active is the ideal solution for any man who needs to relieve himself without actually going to the bathroom - because it can be put on in the morning and worn all day.
The jockstrap-like device allows the wearer to insert his penis into one of three different-sized condom-like sheaths. He can then urinate through a small tube into the washable and tear-resistant plastic bag which can, apparently, hold nearly a pint's worth of liquid. The fluid collection bag is strapped to the thigh or leg and the urine is directed there with a flexible surgical tube connected to the sheath.
A spokesperson for the company said: 'The HeWee Go Active fits securely onto the wearer and, unlike medical urination systems, can be washed and reused again and again.'
It comes with an adjustable support belt of up to 40 inches, but for those with a larger waist, they can order a ten-inch extension strap. Meanwhile, there are three different size sheaths, measuring 30, 35 and 40mm.
A spokesperson added: 'The man chooses from two diaphragm sizes and three sheath sizes. 'A rubber flange containing the chosen diaphragm fits through the reinforced ring on the front of the support belt. 'The sheath is then rolled over the penis to provide a good fit, with any excess left rolled. 'This rolled section of the sheath stretches over the front part of the flange and is held securely in position.'
The device is already available online through customdivers.com and is set to become more widely available later this year.
