Many people have heard about the Stadium Pal because of David Sidaris and his monolog on the David Letterman show, World's Smartest Inventions or The Big Bang Theory . As funny as these are we felt the need to clear up some misconceptions about how and why it is used.
Of course the thought of wearing a urine bag isn't the most attractive thought to have, but for many men this is a welcomed solution to a problem that men face. Urinary incontinence is not a laughing matter for some. We marketed the Stadium Pal for men who wish to avoid standing in restroom lines at sporting events, but the same device is used by many who are recovering from prostate surgery, or as people get older develop "urge incontinence". This is when someone feels the need to go, but the muscles in their body aren't strong enough to hold it back until they can find a restroom. Originally called a male external catheter and leg bag system, the Stadium Pal has given it something that is easier to remember and talk about.
Another area that needs explaining is the male external catheter. As David mentions this is kept on by an adhesive lining inside the sheath. This is true; an adhesive creates the proper seal necessary so that there are not any leaks. The last thing someone wants is a leaking catheter. And the removal is not the horror that everyone perceives. They are rolled off the same way that they are rolled on. The complete system is air tight so that there is no chance of odor escaping, and the thought of any a full bag of urine strap to your leg isn't something that people want to pronounce to the world. That's why there is a valve at the bottom of the bag to empty it. As you can see from our video the entire system is completely discrete and no one will know it is being worn. Of course people will begin to wonder how one person can sit and continue to drink at a sporting event or tailgating and never get up the use the restroom, but with the item being discrete how could anyone really know?
The Stadium Pal gained its popularity in the late 90's and is still a product that gets attention today. The truth is that it REALLY WORKS. Many products come and go, but this still finds new uses every day. Anyone that has been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans can tell you the stories of how difficult it is to find a restroom when you need one. The fine for public urination there is no laughing matter either. Motor cycle riders that compete in the "Iron Butt" find that without using the Stadium Pal their chances of completing the event are slim to none.
Still there are those who will never see that it is a useful item, and want to poke fun at those who use it. Just remember when we were born we all used to wear diapers because our bodies weren't trained yet to know how to hold it, and in the later stages of life we may find ourselves right back where we started when we were children. Except now we have a choice of what type of device to use. The Stadium Pal doesn't sound all that bad compared to a diaper. As a matter of fact it's better than standing in line at a sporting event missing what I paid to see. You can find the Stadium Pal, and Stadium Gal at http://www.biorelief.com/product/stad...
