    If I slide forward to the middle of my cushion I can reach the toilet from there.

    I just wash used caths and use as extension then just toss both in trash no bulk no extra cost.

    I'll be able to post a video of the 'Daily Traveler' soon, after finishing the prototype. Thank you for all of the feedback so far.

    Not too many times i really could think of needing ext. but the sleeve of catheter (seems pretty slick)now why didn't i think of that

    I'm guessing your device hooks to the toilet, which is a plus, but I wouldn't want anything that I had to clean or that was bulky (which pretty much rules out everything).

    I do the same think funklab does. It's simple and cost's nothing. Basically open up both ends of the catheter sleeve. Pee right into the sleeve and urine goes directly into the toilet.
