Title
(EN) Urethral cap
Abstract
(EN)
A urethral cap is provided for alleviating urinary incontinence when attached to the body of the user. The cap has at least a partially deformable cap body with a hand gripping portion and a body contacting encircling surface. The body defines a chamber so as to allow for a vacuum seal when applied to the body so that there is an atmospheric air pressure seal between the urethral cap and the body to prevent urinary flow beyond the urethral cap.
