The Worlds First Antibacterial and Hydrophobic Urine Director
It is massively inconvenient and unhygienic for any woman, old or young, highly active or partially/permanently mobility impaired, not to get to a toilet in time. And if you do then you don’t want to sit on an unsanitary public toilet. There are other times when one is not available or when you simply need to go. For these occasions when nature calls just use the highly hygienic and easy to use Whiz Freedom.
Every woman should have one.
Available both on NHS prescription and for private purchase. Pick one up today.
Whiz® Midstream® and CleanCatch® are registered trademarks of Oxford Devices Ltd.
The Whiz® freedom and Whiz® Relief are CE marked medical devices and are registered with the Irish Medical Board (IMB) in the EU as a medical device under the EU Directive 93/42/EEC and as a medical device in the USA and throughout the world whereever it is sold
The Whiz freedom is antibacterial, hydrophobic and highly portable. Cleverly made, it will fold up when put in your pocket and spring back into shape when you need it, because it is hydrophobic it can be flicked dry (no need to rinse it each time) and the antibacterial properties of the material from which it is made allow the device to be re-used over and over with no degradation in its hygienic properties.
The Freedom is a soft and gentle, ingenious device and it allows women of all ages to wee in a standing up, sitting down or lying position without undressing. The Freedom means no more waiting, squatting holding on or hiding. Called a urine guide (also referred to as urine disposer or portable loo) its carefully (and cleverly) designed highly flexible lily shape fits comfortably the outer curves of the human body and is externally held against the groin. Once you start, nature and gravity do the rest. Urine is directed away from the body so there are no flowbacks, splashes or spills, you don’t even have to remove outer or under clothing. CE marked, FDA approved, and medically approved, the Whiz Freedom preserves Dignity and Liberty whatever the circumstances. It gives women able bodied or mobility impaired the choice to wee wherever and whenever they choose.
Thus aside from allowing women to wee in a standing up, sitting down or lying position, the Whiz Freedom can be used in confined spaces such as while in a wheelchair or a car, or when you are in crutches or using a Zimmer frame or in a glider (you are up there for many hours) or underground exploring caves. For added Flexibility or in real confined situations the Freedom can be attached with our medical grade connector extension to any bag or receptacle including a catheter bag. It is also an important item to have for any women going into hospital who may be even temporarily mobility impaired.
The Whiz Freedom and the Whiz Freedom with Extension tube are both available on NHS Prescription (for purchasers in the United Kingdom) and are also approved by the Continence Foundation. It has also been used by the Police and the military but is not an official standard equipment item. Not yet!

A Short History: The Whiz Freedom was born out of another product the Whiz Cleancatch – an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical device which automatically captures a mid stream urine sample for pathology examination. Prior to begining the clinical trails for Whiz Midstream ethic approval permission from the Authorities had to be obtained. At this meeting, the Chair of the Ethic Committee Board conversationally said as a doctor she is caught in traffic jams – can Jbol Ltd invent a solution for this. And so we did. It was a long long process with so many issues such as re-useable or disposable, shape, hygiene etc. We believe we have now developed the best and most hygienic urine director – it is the first and only one that is hydrophobic and anti-bacterial.
Below is a check list of some of the Features of the Whiz Freedom. As we are always open to customer comments to improve our product please tell us about any other feature we should consider. No other urine director can offer all this level of hygiene and customer convenience.

Technical Specification Sheet – Available on Request
The broad area of the opening (nicknamed the “Lily”) must be uppermost. It will not work otherwise. Some women think that the broader section should go to the bottom to avoid leakage but trust us – it does not work in that position. Part of that thought stems from a historical concern that no previous device has ever worked properly and been leak free – until the Whiz!
This unique shape was design tested in clinical trials in 2003/4 with over 1,400 women who used it and some 1,000 women at open air festivals in the most trying of conditions. Since 2004 tens of thousands of women have used it worldwide. It works and is leak free.
Some tips to aid use:
- Ensure that the Whiz is held snugly against the body (it’s not designed to enter the body). It will not leak, over-fill or splash back.
- Try your Whiz in in the shower and you will see how easy it is to use – sitting standing hovering or crouching – whichever is most comfortable until you’re confident enough to use it away from home.
- To avoid disrobing completely try pulling your panties to one side (unless you are wearing boxer shorts) and then using the Whiz.
- Aim the Whiz downwards and never use it facing the wind!

Our customers told us that they wanted mental and physical comfort. They said they did not want any urine soaked disposable directors, but an eco-friendly and a hygienic device to balance their concern for the environment with their need to have a high grade product that could cope with bacteria.
Unique to all urine directors, the Whiz Freedom is made not only from a medical grade elastomer, but one which is machine washable to 40 degrees to the Freedom has been specially developed by us to be antibacterial and hydrophobic while being re-usable thereby giving total comforft to the user.
The Whiz is the first and only anti-bacterial urine director in the world. Being both hydrophobic and anti-bacterial makes the Whiz Freedom the last word in hygienic urine directors.
The Whiz is manufactured using a high grade medically approved plastic – called a TPE or thermoplastic elastomer. An agent has been added and the one used is an inorganic silver-based master batch offering both antibacterial, anti-microbial and antifungal protection. It does not have the heat stability limitations associated with typical organic products.
Applications of this agent include: Chopping board, protective film, gloves, kitchen drainer, waste bin/liners, utensils, pan/knife handles, lunch box, bath shower items, soap case, toothbrushes, shampoo bottles, emergency water tanks, toilet seats, hairbrushes, and combs as well as in electrical appliances (refrigerator, dish washer, iron, telephones, and mobile phones) automobile parts, stationary, contact lens holder, train straps and cosmetics.
It’s characteristics include: high resistance to heat up to 500°C, low toxicity, high degree of transparency, high performance at low concentrations, non volatile, excellent anti-wash characteristics, stable to ultraviolet light and long life.
We have also developed a product with a high grade additive that combined with our medical grade material and antibacterial agent will repell all liquid so the Whiz Freedom remains dry immediately after use â€“ all liquid rolls off ie is repelled off it. If any droplets remain on the surface, they are easily removed with a flick or shake. It is the first (and only) flick dry urine director.

Our Customer Testimonials
“Say goodbye to getting your gear off to pee in the middle of the night when camping! Just undo your zipper and slip on the “whizzer” as I call it. I am about to buy a truckload for all of my girlfriends because I believe it is the best product ever. No drips, no leaks. You don’t even have to hold it on tightly. Just place the perfectly moulded cup in position and let it flow. Shake it off and walk away. No mess, no fuss. Pure freedom. Stand up and pee like a man I say!”
“Wow, wow, wow – what a product! I’ve been waiting for this all my life. Finally an invention that advances feminine hygiene at a stroke.”
“No more waiting, squatting, holding-on or hiding! With the Whiz at my side I’m confidently prepared for any emergency.”
“It’s absolutely brilliant. I am a keen angler and having to wee beside a lake or river has always been a problem in the past. Disgusting public toilets are no longer a problem either. My mum and nan both want a Whiz now too and I would like one for my three year old daughter.”
“With a connecting tube I am able to use the Whiz in the wheelchair and also in the car. It is very quick and empties cleanly into a bottle with no mess. I am very pleased to have solved the problem of how to go to the loo when toilets are inaccessible or locked up. Thank you very much.”
“Yes – I was a frequent user of the Whiz during my expedition to the North Pole! I really don’t know what I would have done with out it. Sometimes the weather conditions can be really pretty fierce which stops you from going outside to pee. I know a lot of the girls were peeing in the porches of their tents but I preferred to use my Whiz and a Nalgee bottle. I would pee both whilst just being in the tent with my team and I even used to pee in my sleeping bag. Infact, I found the Whiz so easy to use I was able to pee in my sleeping bag without undoing the zips at all! Very usefl when its minus 40 outside.”
“This product has made such a difference to my life, I cannot tell you. I have got my confidence back. I am not permanently looking for aloo and it makes me feel good. Wow is what I say Fantastic!”
“With a bad back and loos that are too low the Whiz is an answer to my prayers.”
“At my age, I often find myself in difficult circumstances but with the Whiz I have been saved from many embarassing situations, especially when I am out and about. It has been a real life saver.”
“After 2 new hips and 2 new knees following chronic arthritis … I can go away for the day, tuck it in my bag and won’t be stuck for a toilet.”
“Many thanks – this will probably be the best Crimbo presi ever. I am a wheelchair user and a micro-light pilot. Oh those small airfield loos are horrible and the plying suit – one piece, plus layers of Damart. Ahhhhhh! Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
“Life Saver – my boyfriend was dead right.”
“Thankyou very much – when I went back to the campsite it was a dream life saver – no wandering through tents.”
