PRLog - Apr. 2, 2012 - KIMBERLEY, British Columbia -- The Shewee is an ergonomically designed, moulded plastic device that allows women to urinate while standing up and without removing clothes. It comes in a hygienic resealable pouch or case, and by holding against the crotch directs urine away from the body.
The Shewee can be used in situations where squatting is impractical, difficult or potentially embarrassing, or anywhere toilets are unhygienic or not always readily available.
The reusable Shewee is an essential item for every active woman including those who travel, ski, run, hike, cycle, sail, those in the police force, paramedics, armed forces, fire services, mountain rescue as well as pilots, rock climbers and for festivals where the only option going into the portable toilets on site - with the Shewee you can stand and aim!!
Shewee is designed at just under seven inches long, it is lightweight enough to be carried in a woman’s backpack or pocket and can be easily washed or sterilised. It is made with a smooth liquid repellent coating to ensure cleanliness and hygiene at all times, and whether Shewee is used with or without a container it prevents drips, splashes and bare bottoms.
Shewee is now supplied in retail outlets all over the UK and has distributors all over the world including Canada and North America.
Shewee was patented in 1999 in the UK and Canada in 2008. It was entered in to the annual New Designers Awards, where Samantha Fountain the designer won the James Dyson Product Design Award. More recently Sam won the Silver Award at the British Female Inventor and Innovator Awards. Since appearing on BBC’s UK Dragons’ Den over 6 years ago Shewee is now a purse essential!
