The device has been developed to help women avoid unhygienic public washrooms.
Students at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi have launched a 'stand and pee device' for women called "Sanfe". The device has been developed to help women avoid unhygienic public washrooms.
"Sanfe" is introduced with a #StandUpForYourself campaign on the World Toilet Day. Under this campaign, 100,000 free samples of the product will be distributed to women across the country.
The device has been tried and tested at the AIIMS. It is priced at Rs 10.
Archit Agarwal, a BTech student and Co-founder of Sanfe, said, "Lack of hygiene in public washrooms exposes one out of every two women to Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). Concerned by this we innovated this female stand and pee device so that they can maintain a safe distance from the toilet seats and protect themselves from the possibility of getting infected."
"Sanfe will also liberate females from the constant burden of withholding their urge to pee. The product will be ideal for pregnant women, women with arthiritis, differently abled, to be used at public toilets at railway stations, trains and bus terminals," he added.
