Keep Your Pants on, clean, and out of the way!
- Leaves both hands free to self cath.
- Pants and underwear securely out of the way.
- Avoid embarrassing wet spots and odors.
- Holds the drainage bag too.
The PantHook™ is the solution for the age-old problem of not having enough hands to easily self-cath. A discrete black panel about the size of your palm, the Pant Hook™ slides under your cushion; pull the hook up and snag your pants and underwear, and it acts as a third hand. Keeps pants and trousers securely out of the way to keep them clean and leave both hands free. If you are using a closed system, a secondary hook can hold the bag.
Mark Van Linden, a T10 para from Grand Rapids, Mich., is the brains behind the PantHook™. He devised the hook after two-plus years of using a “hideous-looking thing with surgical tubing” that he’d received during his initial rehab. He loved the way the device helped make cathing easier and mess-free but hated the way it looked. Applying the skills he’s learned in the auto industry, he started prototyping a more discrete replacement in December 2012, and by February of this year he had it down.
The Pant Hook™ is already changing Van Linden’s life. When he is not working in his job with the federal government, you can find him in his van, parked by a McDonald’s so he can use the free Wi-Fi to respond to orders. “This has taken off so fast,” he says. “I can’t keep up with it! It’s like overnight stardom.”
