The Self-Contained Air Toilet (SCAT) is a personal self-contained toilet that slips on like a pair of underwear or shorts and inflated when needed and collapsed when not in use. There are four essential parts to this design: 1. the inflatable SCAT cups, 2. the Pee Poop Pods (P3), 3.the shorts or undergarment, with pockets, that secure the P3s and 4.the proper flow controllers that ensure accurate inflation and waste disposal direction. Consisting of two basic units, the crotch less shorts and the SCAT device, users can simply put on the shorts, insert the device and snap the appropriate connections to the proper ports. The waste flows through the air-vacuumed tubes, through the waste controllers and into the proper Pods for storage.
My mother-in-law inspired my innovation of the Self-contained air toilet; SCAT is important because of it's intended purpose to remove waste away from the body and impacts the users health and safety.
To demonstrate to my son that with critical thinking, and a driven purpose, anything is possible.
The SCAT has the potential to allow astronauts in space the opportunity to have longer flights in case of emergencies, continue working without unnecessary delays due to natural causes and provide comfort and dignity when dealing with this necessary human function.
The SCAT can also be used for: bedridden individuals who are unable to move, coma patients, long surgeries, military personnel, and even truck drivers on long hauls.
