The Stadium Pal Mini kit is the 500 ml portable urinal for men. It is completely discrete and safe to wear for almost any occasion. The kit became popular began in the late 90’s and Coloplast started it all with their 7 Day Kit . After they discontinued making the kit BioRelief.com came up with the idea of renaming it the “Mini”. Essentially it holds half as much as the original Stadium Pal. Many people forget that it used to help men manage urinary incontinence. Rather its for convenience, urge incontinence, or recovery from prostate surgery there is not an easier item to use that allows for complete freedom without worry about where the closest restroom is.
Safer to use than in indwelling catheter, and more practical than an adult undergarment, it has opened the doors for so many men who used to be afraid to go out in public for fear of having an accident. What makes it unique is the male external catheter. Made of 100% Silicone it is a latex free material that is clear to see through so that skin can be inspected if necessary. Male externals come in different sizes. The measurement needed to determine the size is a girth measurement. Using the “Sizing Guide” allows for the best fit, and takes all the guessing out of which size to choose.
The STADIUM PAL consists of 4 simple components:
- The Male External Catheter worn like a condom (7 ea.)
- 20″ (cut to fit) flexible hose with connector (1 ea.)
- Wide Velcro Latex free straps (2ea.),
- Collection bag (500 ml)with drain valve(1 ea.).

How to size a male catheter
To determine the correct size of male external catheter use the provided measurement guide. Print out the PDF file and cut out the half moon circles. Rest the guide across the penis while it is in a relaxed state. Choose the size that it best fits into. If you find yourself in between 2 sizes choose the smaller size. If after you apply the catheter and it feels a little tight, you can take a blunt pair of scissors and snip the band at the base of the catheter. This should relieve the pressure.
For men with sensitive skin who wear a male catheter
Use of a skin barrier can help men who may have sensitive or frail skin. This will create an invisible barrier between the skin and the adhesive inside the sheath of the catheter. We like to call it “fake skin”. This invisible shield when applied to the skin will leave it feeling a little tacky. The adhesive in the catheter will now come in contact with the barrier and not the real skin. The skin barrier can easily be removed in the shower with soap and warm water.
Male external catheter is hard to remove
Removing the male catheter should just be as easy as putting it on, but if it is too difficult an adhesive remover can be used. Snip the band at the base of the catheter and work the remover under it. Gently peel away the catheter. The adhesive remover is also used for any suborn residue left on the skin from the adhesive. Taking a shower and using warm water and soap will also help with removing the catheter. Remember to take your time and be gentle.
Urine remains in the tube and catheter collapses
Some men have an issue with the leg bag and urine is retaining in the tubing and the catheter is collapsing while on the penis. What is happening is a vacuum effect when the leg bag is drained. When the urine is draining it is pulling the air with it creating the vacuum effect. This collapses the catheter and will not allow all the urine to drain from the tubing and the bag will appear to be stuck together.
An easy way to alleviate this is to first make sure that there is a small pocket of air in the collection bag before the bag is used for the first time of the day. This can be done by blowing into the tubing before inserting the catheter in it. Then when the bag is drained do not drain the entire amount from the bag. Leave a small amount of urine in the bag ( an ounce or so) and this will prevent the vacuum you may experience. It should not interfere with the operation of the bag, but it’s better to not have this.
