P-Mate is a Disposable Urine Director so females can stand to pee or avoid transfer to the toilet from a wheelchair!
- No more squatting over a public toilet or porta potty.
- Wheel up and pee.
- Easy to use: just position, pee and toss.
- Easy to transport, folds to fit in a pocket!
- Great for women in a wheelchair or with orthopedic conditions.
P-MATEs are disposable, sanitary, single use cardboard urine directors used to promote hygiene and comfort by allowing females to urinate standing or from their wheelchair. When unfolded to the “open funnel” position and snugly placed between the legs to fit against the body and tilted downward (use of gravity is a MUST) it allows females to stand to void (pee); which eliminates the need to “squat”. Also allows those in a wheelchair to wheel up facing the toilet and pee without need for transfer!
P-MATEs work well for women with orthopedic conditions (especially knee and hip), for use in port-o-lets/ porta potty (public loo); they are also good for little girls who are not quite tall enough to perch over a toilet. Actually they are indispensable for anyone who wants to avoid possible exposure to any number of diseases or conditions that may be present on public toilets or port-o-lets, while providing the comfort of standing or peeing from your chair. P-MATEs require lowering the pants (and underwear) slightly to accommodate the downward tilt that is necessary to prevent spilling. P-Mates are made of recycled materials and finely waxed cardboard for stability. They fit discreetly in pocket or purse. Shaped to the female body form, the female urethra empties urine from the bladder into the cupped flow area.

LIVING WITH DISABILITY:
“They have given me freedom from my home for longer periods of time.”
“I am a 27 year old with Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy. Public restrooms have always been a challenge. I do not have the strength to rise from a public handicap toilet. So I take a plastic cup with me. To keep from returning home every time I needed to go to the bathroom, I found an alternative that was not fabulous but got the job done. I would stand and peeing in my plastic cup. This worked okay…..until the cup was almost full and I was not done. I would then have to stop peeing, dump the cup in the toilet, re-position, and resume peeing. This was very tricky and not much fun, but better than hurrying back home every time nature called! I checked in to a Lady J, but did not feel it was very sanitary. Lady J’s are made of hard plastic and are reusable. I didn’t feel this would solve my problem because it would have to be cleaned after every use and was rather large to carry around with you. So my hunt began for something disposable, and I found P-Mates P-Mates TM are incredibly easy to use – my very first try was a complete success. They work great!! No more pinching it off to empty the cup. P-Mate has given me freedom from my home for longer periods of time. Thanks!” – B. Welch
