Scrotal Catch

July 9, 2012

A Cincinnati, OH-based researcher has received a patent for an incontinence product for males adapted to protect the male genitalia, inferior abdomen or pelvis after surgery, wherein the incontinence product is placed against or in proximity to the body of the male to absorb and contain urine and fecal matter, the incontinence product comprising a scrotal catch wherein the scrotal catch is attached to at least a portion of the incontinence product, and wherein the scrotal catch is configured to separate the interior surface of the incontinence product into: an anterior compartment which supports, protects, and/or covers at least a portion of a male’s scrotum; and a posterior compartment.

Wherein the scrotal catch is liquid permeable and flexible, such that the scrotal catch conforms to a contour of the scrotum, and is positioned behind the male genitalia to act as a barrier to separate the male genitalia from the site of expulsion of fecal matter, thereby reducing and/or preventing fecal matter from entering the anterior compartment and contaminating a surgical site.
