MissWizz is the first dry urinal for women in which they can urinate upright without contact. To urinate, the user stands above the wide spout of the urinal. This can be done in 2 ways: with the face away from the urinal as with a normal toilet or with the face towards the urinal itself.
By choosing an upright posture (read: slightly bent by the knees), no other need is stimulated, so that a rinse is no longer necessary.
With a urinal, there is also no odor nuisance that occurs with chemical toilets.
Veel vrouwen gaan op openbare toiletten een verkrampte houding aannemen om geen contact te maken met de bril. Bij het gebruik van het vrouwenurinoir is er geen contact met het urinoir noodzakelijk en de houding vraagt geen grote spierinspanning.
A female urinal cabin occupies the same surface area as an ordinary chemical toilet. Inside are 2 ladies urinals attached, separated with an intermediate compartment. So if 20 ladies' urinals can be placed on the same surface of 10 chemical toilets, there will be shorter queues!
A urinal that is mobile and not dependent on water connection can be placed anywhere more easily. As a result, there is a sanitary solution for both genders.
No water rinsing is needed for a simple pee. This means that an average large festival of 300,000 visitors can save as much as 12,000,000 liters of drinking water per day!
That's an enormous ecological progress, but also a huge cost-saving factor.
The concept of the female urinal and name 'MissWizz' was born as a graduation project Product Development from Ellen Lejeune at the university of Antwerp.
The thesis was redesigned into a cheaper and feasible design for testing. This first working prototype is being realized with the financial support of the City of Ghent and was tested 3 years in a row at the Ghent Festivities.
310 users were interviewed, of which 94% of the women were satisfied and would still use the female urinal again.
This prototype enjoyed spontaneous media attetion in newspapers, on the radio and on a TV show 'Goedele Op Dinsdag'.
A second prototype was necessary to test the practical side of the cabin.
The design had to be mobile, easy to transport and comfortable for the users. Crowdfunding was established in the summer of 2019 to finance the construction costs. The prototype was built in stainless steel and plastic tarpaulin. 2 zippers served as an entrance. The cabin contains 2 female urinals, from which one is mounted at a lower height for smaller women.
Also this time the project enjoyed spontaneous media attention in newspapers, radio and even the VTM news on TV (22/07/2019).
10 years after the graduation project, the mobile female urinal for festivals will be launched on the market.
