What is the difference between a urinal or bed pan?
A urinal is only meant to pee. You can close a urinal well with a cap, because it happens occasionally that the urinal is accidentally knocked over. That is why a closure is essential for every good urinal. A bed pan, on the other hand, is primarily intended to absorb stools. All bed pans are supplied with a cover for any odors or accidents.
What is the difference between a female urinal and a male urinal?
The neck of the urinal makes the difference. The design of a female urinal has been adjusted so that women can pee easily. With male urinals , the neck is slightly longer so that it is pleasant to use. There are also specially designed urinals for people who wish to use them from a wheelchair.
How do you use a urinal or bed pan?
Place the urinal somewhere that you can always reach quickly. Sit or stand somewhere where you feel comfortable, open the lid (if there is one), pee in it, and then close the lid again immediately. This way you prevent spills or accidents. For people who urinate from their bed, we recommend choosing a urinal with backflow protection, this prevents spillage, even if the urinal falls over or falls to the ground.
Other words for urinal include. urine container, bed pan, toilet pan, toilet pan, urine boat or piss glass.
