Eco-pi by MedPaper logo

A Cleaner, Better Way to go...

How it Works

eco•pí™ is designed to assist patients who are leaving a urine specimen for any reason. A cup is placed in the center of the funnel and the funnel is placed under the patient. As the patient empties their bladder the tray directs all of the urine into the cup. Then the cup can easily be removed and the paper funnel can be thrown away.

Millions of wasted samples... and counting

The world’s leading health care diagnostics company estimates that millions of urine specimen are unusable upon arrival due to lack of urine or volume of urine.

Who it's for

I originally designed this for women – specifically in the OBGYN offices – pregnant women, elderly etc. but as I started paying closer attention I realized this was for all types of patients and it is needed in all areas. (Pediatricians, retirement homes, labs, etc.)

What others are saying about eco•pí

The real question is, why still plastic?

When designing ecopi, people would ask me, Why paper? And I always answered with, Why NOT paper? With 6 million tons of single-use plastics being thrown out every year, and hospitals being a large contributor to that number, why wouldn’t we use paper? While there is a place for plastic in hospitals, Dr’s offices, labs, etc, there is a huge opportunity to move into an area of paper. Ecopi is 99% recyclable paper, yet strong enough to hold full cups of liquid. Because it can be thrown away after use, it also cuts down on wasted water and energy for washing and sanitizing. I believe now is the time to look closer at the medical field and replace plastic with paper where we can – and it is starting with urine specimen samples. Patent pending.
