Ideas for nocturia

Posted , 8 users are following.

Most of the older men in the world are walking back and forth to the bathroom at night.   Its too bad make our trips productive ie: put in treadmills in the hallways leading to the bathrooms so we can generate electricity when we walk back and forth at night.  Maybe help light Yankee Stadium or bring electricity to some poor village in India.

    What a great idea! As we in the UK are still in the EU as yet we may be able to get a grant to set this up. This green energy is at a premium. A whole new method of generation opens up. Hydro electric power is limited in its scope but we can go to pee anywhere and our lack of flow will not impede this new form of generation.

    jjj57989 you may one day be declared a hero for your far sighted visionary plan.

    Great idea! Only problem is that you will find yourself walk back & forth more often than needed when you have the electricity generating machine in your hall way. Another one is that when you hit the bathroom, you try to pee but no more urine left in the bladder because you forget how many time you already went.

    I like that and have a suggestion to increase generation output. Why not put a tiny PPT (p*ss propelled turbine) coipled to a tiny generator in the toilets. The visual needle measuring generated voltage may well be good biofeedback to make us wee better smile

    TreMENdous idea!  My fear is that some unscrupulous profiteer will get wind of this idea, and before long ... charges on top of surcharges. No thanks.  I have a 30' hose that extends from my ... bed ... to the bathroom.
