United States Patent O 3,194,238 URINARY DEVXCE Lee K. Breece, lira, San Pedro, Calif, assignor, by mesne assignments, to Resifiex Laboratory, Los Angeies, (Satin, a corporation of Caiifornia Filed Mar. 1, 1963, Ser. No. 262,084 2 Claims. (Cl. 128-295) This invention relates generally to a urinary device and, more particularly, to a urinary device adapted for use by adult females who may be incontinent or have diificulty in controlling discharges from the bladder.

The containment or collection of an involuntary discharge of urine by a female has been the subject of several prior proposed devices which were externally applied and covered pro-genital organs in an attempt to direct such flow into a suitable receptacle or collection bag, either carried on the leg or placed adjacent the patient if the patient was bed-ridden. Such prior devices could be readily associatedwith an immobilized patient and, in general, were satisfactory. However, when a patient was only partially immobilized, was capable of sitting up or changing position in bed, or was an ambulatory patient, such prior devices often shifted due to such movement of the patient and body pressures created by such movement. In such instance, capture and control of the discharge Was incomplete and not satisfactory. In general, such prior devices presented several disadvantages or difiiculties as incomplete, nonpositive sealing around the urethral orifice, discomfort in wearing such prior devices, change in position of such devices when the patient moves, bulkiness of external padding sometimes used. Lack of capability to maintain a positive sealing relation with the urethral orifice during various movements of the body of the patient was perhaps the major disadvantage. The present invention contemplates essentially an internal type of female urinary device which is so constructed and arranged that it obviates the disadvantages of prior proposed external type devices and those internal type devices which utilize other body cavities for maintaining position of the urinary device, such as Patent 2,483; 079. The present invention contemplates a urinary device which includes a deform-able resilient, flexible tubular fitting .or member adapted to be internally inserted between labia of the vulva for sealing engagement under sli-g-ht pressure with surfaces surrounding the urethral orifice and wherein such tubular member is retained in position without discomfort to a mobile or immobilized patient. The tubular member is short in length, readily laterally deformable at itsinner end portion and has an outer end portion which is adapted to be releasably connected to a support means. The support means generally comprises a flexible resilient, triangularly shaped, support member having side Walls of selected configuration for engagement with external surfaces of the labia of the vulva. The tubular member communicates through a port in the support member with a suitable drain tube which may conduct discharges to a suitable bag or receptacle of selected type.

The primary object of the present invention therefore is to disclose and provide a novel urinary device adapted for use by females for directing urine evacuations to a suitable receptacle. An object of the invention is to disclose and provide a novel urinary devicewhich can be worn without discomfort and which retains its position during usual movements of the body of a patient.

Another object of this invention is to disclose and provide a urinary device for incontinent patients which is simple and inexpensive.

-A further object of the invention is to disclose and 3,194,238 Patented July 13, 1965 provide a urinary device for incontinent patients which can be easily and conveniently associated with the urogenital organs of a patient.

Still another object of the invention is to disclose an internal type urinary device having means to eifect a positive, slight pressure seal about a urethral orifice without discomfort to the patient and to maintain such seal during various movement of the patients body.

A further object of the invention is to provide a sanitary, readily clean-able, female urinary device.

A still further object is to disclose such a device which is readily adapt-able to fully incontinent patients and which may be simply modified for use by slightly incontinent patients.

Many other objects and advantages of the present invention will be readily apparent from the following description of the drawings in which exemplary embodirnents of this invention are shown.

In the drawings:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a urinary device embodying this invention.

FIG. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary top plan view of a support means and tubular member embodying the invention as shown in FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view taken in the plane indicated by line III-'II-I of FIG. 2.

FIG. 4 is a transverse sectional view taken in the planeindicated by line IV-IV of FIG. 2.

FIG. 5 is a transverse sectional view taken in the same plane as FIG. 4 showing a modification of the device for slightly incontinent patients.

In FIG. 1, a urinary device embodying this invention is generally indicated at 10. Device 10 generally comprises a support means 11 and a tubular means such as tubular member or fitting 12 carried by the support means. The support means 11 may be suspended from a Waist belt 14 by a pair of front straps 15 and a back strap 16. The front straps 15 may be attached by suitable fasteners 17 to the front of the support means at corners thereof and may extend upwardly along the groin at the depression between the thigh and the lower abdominal portion of the body. For this purpose, the upper ends 18 of straps 15 may be adjustably located and fastened to the waist belt 14 by suitable spaced fastener elements 19. The back strap 16 similarly has an upper end 20 adjustably attached to the waist belt 14 at suitably spaced fasteners 21. It will be understood that the fatseners 17, 19 and 21 may be of any well known snap-type or other type of fasteners.

The device 11 may be of generally triangular shape and may have a wide front top portion 23 adapted to be placed over and to cover the lower pubic region. Member 11 tapers toward the rear to a back end 24 suitably configured, in this example, rounded and providing sufficient space for fastener 25 for back strap 16, the fastener 25 being of similar type as fasteners 17.

FIG. 5 shows the device modified and adapted for use by patients only slightly incontinent. In such instances, the wearing of a leg bag or the connection of device 10 to a fluid collecting receptacle is usually not necessary. Device 10 may be modified by removing tubular member 12 and connector 50 from the part 38 in the main wall 30 of the support member 11 and inserting a plug means such as a suitable circular plug 60 of an impervious material slightly stifler than the soft, flexible material of the support member 11. Plug 60 includes an annular rib 61 on its circumferential edge face 62, the annular rib 61 being received within the annular groove 42 provided in the side member 11. The plug is thus interlocked and grapsed by the port margins of wall 30.

A pad 64 is provided with a configuration generally corresponding to the configuration of the chamber or cavity 65 defined by the side walls 27 and the overlying portions 28 of the side walls. Pad 64 is thus readily held within the side walls 27. Pad 64 may be made of any suitable soft, absorbent material in order to absorb the slight discharges of the patient. The pad 64 may also be treated with suitable well-known sanitizing and deodorant agents.

Removal of the pad 64 and plug 60 permits the sup- I mally upstanding resilient open ended tubular member having an inner end portion laterally and longitudinally resiliently deformable and an outer end portion, said inner end portion having an outwardly directed peripheral lip adapted to be internally received between labia minora for sealingly engaging surfaces surrounding a urethral orifice; and support means connected to the outer end portion of the tubular member and having an ovate flange for engaging external surfaces of the labria majora to retain said tubular member in position with respect to the urethral orifice.

2. A female urinary collection device comprising: a pliant support means provided with a port; an axially compressible tubular-like open-ended fitting carried by the support means in communication with said port and having an inner deformable end adapted to be internally received and held between labia minora and to sealingly surround a urethral orifice; said pliant support means including a resilent flange with surface to engage labia majora for retaining the position of said fitting and means connected to the support means for conducting fluid from the port to a collection receptacle.
