The Urinelle is a paper funnel cone that women can use to urinate while standing.
Every woman on the planet knows that feeling – a toilet is desperately needed but the seat is not incredibly inviting. Unfortunately, this kind of scenario is common in many public restrooms around the world.
While attendants do their best to keep up with the cleaning of toilets, users are not always mindful of others wishing to make use of public conveniences after them.
Adding the risks of infections being picked up even from apparently clean seats, many women spend half their lives either performing acrobatics or wishing they were male just so they can stand up while answering nature’s call.
Help is at Hand with Urinelle
Fortunately, Huikeshoven Medical BV have put their experience to good use and have developed Urinelle, an excellent product offering women of all ages a chance to safely go to the toilet without the need for acrobatics.
When flat-packed, this product, made from 100% biodegradable, natural materials (meaning it can be simply flushed away after use) is only four inches by seven inches in size, compact enough to store away in a handbag, so it can be taken anywhere with ease.
Opened up, it forms a cone which can be used to urinate while standing up, thus making life much easier for elderly ladies unable to hover over a seat with their knees part bent, pregnant women or simply any woman not wishing to touch a seat for whatever reason.
Although it is flushable, the material of the Urinelle is hydrophobic during use, meaning it will repel fluid and keep the user’s hands dry and clean.
The many Uses of Urinelle
This naturally makes the Urinelle perfect for any occasion, from a night out on the town or concerts to shopping trips or sporting events. In short, whenever the need arises to use a public restroom, the Urinelle will help to avoid using seats without the need to turn into a contortionist.
Although not exactly a potty toilet, the Urinelle is also perfect for camping or hiking out in the wild. Rather than having to find a secluded spot to crouch in, a woman using Urinelle can simply pop behind the nearest bush and stand up doing what needs to be done.
In such situations, it is of course necessary to carry a bag or plastic container in which to store used cones until they can be safely disposed off. They may be biodegradable, but leaving them under bushes is still not a good idea.
Consumer Responses to Urinelle

Its ease of use and compact storage make Urinelle an accessory found in more and more health and hygiene conscious women’s handbags.
