First-of-Kind Power Wheelchair Accessory – The PUMP™ – Provides a New Level of Independence for People with Spinal Cord Injury
The PUMP is the wheelchair pump – it’s a new power wheelchair accessory from BIOTX Ltd. which allows a person with a spinal cord injury to easily empty their urinary leg bag directly into a toilet or urinal with a simple press of a button. The PUMP (wheelchair pump) was designed primarily for people with tetraplegia or quadriplegia. Having said that, The PUMP (wheelchair pump) will also benefit those who are paraplegic who have difficulties emptying their urinary leg bags. The PUMP gives people with a spinal cord injury a higher degree of independence, dignity and privacy by allowing bathroom or public restroom use without help from anyone else.
The PUMP (wheelchair pump) is sanitary and installs easily. It provides numerous health benefits to those with a spinal cord injury by allowing the person the opportunity to drink as much as desired – which results in better hydration and avoids the risks of urinary tract infections, Autonomic Dysreflexia and hypotension. In addition, people with a spinal cord injury using The PUMP will enjoy the increased freedom of mobility and a reduced reliance on caregivers.
DryDiapersPlus and DryDiapersPlus Canada are excited to announce that we are authorized distributors of The PUMP (wheelchair pump).
To order The PUMP (wheelchair pump), please visit us at DryDiapersPlus or DryDiapersplus Canada.

Incontinence: More widespread than you think
Wellness Brief featured in USA Today – (reposted as written on page 5)
You’ve seen those commercials with the frequent bladder urges, and you’ve been hearing the phrase “over-active bladder.” So it seems that the once-taboo topic, urinary incontinence, is finally out of the closet. Over 25 million Americans suffer from some degree of incontinence— 75-80 percent of them women. Yet for all the attention this subject is receiving, “many continue assuming it’s part of the normal aging process—so they don’t bother discussing it with their doctor,” says the Albuquerque, New Mexico, urogynecologist Rebecca Rogers, M.D. In fact, incontinence, or loss of bladder control, is an eminently treatable medical condition—or rather several conditions.
It comes in varieties. Stress incontinence (associated with coughing, sneezing, and laughing), is caused by a weak sphincter muscle in the bladder. Urge incontinence (a.k.a overactive bladder), by contrast, is a sudden, uncontrolled need to urinate. This is due to bladder irritation, bowel problems, or neurological damage.
In women, anything that places stress on the pelvic floor—pregnancy, childbirth, menopausal hormone loss—can cause incontinence.
In men, it tends to result from blockage from an enlarged prostate or from prostate surgery, says Dr. Rogers, professor of Obstetric Gynecology at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center.
Other triggers include obesity, smoking, caffeine, spicy or acidic food, carbonated beverages, diuretics and cardiac and blood pressure mediations, dehydration, and overhydration.
To minimize or avert incontinence, maintain a healthy weight, exercise frequently, eat plenty of fiber, avoid smoking, and practice behavioral training. For example, when you feel the urge to urinate, wait 10 minutes before heading to the bathroom. Gradually increase the delay to several hours.
Treatments Many treatment options are now available, “which can be tailored to suit the goals and expectations (of ) each patient,” says Dr. Rogers.
- Urethral inserts—to prevent leakage in women.
- Radiofrequency therapy—to tighten and strengthen the urethral muscles.
- Hormone therapy—topical estrogen, to help restore tissues in the urethra and vagina; testosterone supplements, to help strengthen the urethral muscles in women.
- Oral medications—to tighten or strengthen the urethral and pelvic floor muscles, or to relax overactive bladder muscles.
- Botox—injected into the bladder muscles to deaden contraction producing nerves. It offers success in the 70 percent range, says Dr. Kobashi.
- Electrostimulation, biofeedback, and pelvic-muscle exercises. Management Tools
- For chronic bladder dysfunction, catheters come in a variety of shapes and sizes, some with smooth anti-bacterial coatings, which helps avoid urinary tract infections. What’s more, Medicare is now covering the cost of disposable singleuse catheters.
- A mainstay for the bedridden, but useful for active people too, incontinence garments come in a wide array of sizes, shapes, and absorbency. Attends makes numerous pads, briefs, and extended-wear briefs. Unique Wellness makes a brief said to be comparable to NASA’s Maximum Absorbent Garment.
- For maintaining urinary health, recent scientific research shows cranberry products protect in urological health along with cancer and heart disease.
