Initial Press Release
UNDER-TEC Corporation of Pueblo, Colorado, and its inventor Buck Weimer, has produced a new generation of protective underwear patented to filter out the bad smell of human gas (flatulence).
The underwear, called UNDER-EASE, is made from a soft, nylon (poly- urethane-coated) fabric with an “exit hole” cut from the back of the air-tight material near the bottom for gas to be expelled. This exit hole is covered with a uniquely designed “pocket” made from an ordinary porous fabric.
A high functioning, replaceable filter pad is inside the pocket through which all gas passes. This multi-layered filter pad contains, among other things, two layers of Australian sheep’s wool and a layer of activated carbon. This filter pad traps the 1-2 percent of human gas creating the foul smell (mostly hydrogen sulfide) but allows the remaining non-smelling gas (mostly methane) to pass through. It also allows the natural buildup of body heat to pass through.
Millions of people around the world suffer the embarrassment of their bad smelling flatulence. Some of this bad gas is caused by poor eating habits, but most because of Gastro Intestinal Disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome – Ulcerative Colitis, or Crohn’s Disease. (Mr. Weimer’s wife, Arlene, has Crohn’s Disease, and was the inspiration for the invention.) In addition, those people with a Lactose Intolerance, taking Diabetes medication or the elderly could also benefit from wearing UNDER-EASE.
Other products for flatulence on the market include medications that must be ingested or bulky cushions that have to be carried around. UNDER-EASE, on the other hand, can be worn as underwear and can be worn to bed over regular underwear. They can be worn to work under regular trousers or dresses without detection; and in most social settings (except bathing, swimming, hot tubs or other water-related activities).
UNDER-EASE are comfortable, washable, and should last 6 months to 1 year under ordinary conditions. Test marketing has validated the effectiveness of the filter, which can be replaced, and lasts 1-6 months; depending on use..
UNDER-TEC Corporation has moderately priced these protective underwear with filter pad at $24.95, and replacement filter pads at $9.95 (pk of 2). Order by calling 1-888-433-5913 or visit the Web site at www.Under-Tec.com.
