Shutoff Valve Invented for External Male Catheters

By , in PR PR Health on .



Thanks to the creative thinking of an inventor from Lula, Ga., there is good news for males who use external catheters. He has conceived of a much less bulky option than the conventional tube- and-bag assembly currently on the market.
He developed a prototype for the patent-pending THOMAS VALVE CC to provide a more dignified and discreet alternative for external male condom catheter users. As such, it is more comfortable and invisible under clothing. At the same time, it facilitates sanitary conditions and is durable to withstand continuous use. This novel device is also safe, practical and easy to use, clean and maintain. In addition, it is convenient, effective and affordably priced.

The inventor’s personal health issues inspired the idea. “Having to use a catheter bag strapped to my leg after I had my prostate removed was difficult for me,” he said. “Looking for a better way, I created this device for use with an external male condom catheter.”

The original design was submitted to the Atlanta office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
