A few years ago, a gag gift made a real splash on the golf course, and that was the Uroclub. The Uroclub was a portable urinal, cleverly disguised as a golf club, so that you can relieve yourself on the course and empty it back to the club house later on.

Understanding the human body is important to everybody, and as part of that understanding is knowing that as our bodies age, or when accidents happen, sometimes extra support is needed. Some issues can be embarrassing, and often people will try to ignore them until it’s too late or cause quite the mess; but at BioRelief we believe that education and an array of high quality products can help break the stigma of health issues, and provide solutions for those that need them.
Most people don’t think twice when they see certain products, that they are just something that is there and available for people that need them – but, in the hands of those people that need them, they are everything. BioRelief has a whole host of products that are medical in nature and have helped thousands of people get past a medical issue, whether it’s something temporary, or just the new normal now that they are aging or had an onset of issues.
