An inventor has created a disposable product to eliminate odors and sometimes embarrassing sounds that can happen when a person breaks the wind.
Leopold Trimmel from Hofstetten-Gruenau, Austria, has designed a pressure relief filter, called the Oxxxo Bodykat, which helps the gas to be released in a controlled manner.
It is said that the product traps the gas, prevents any unpleasant odor from escaping and also helps to alleviate pain, since the user will be able to avoid an accumulation of wind that could lead to swelling.
According to the website, Oxxxo Bodykat & # 39; It is intended for people with food intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, damaged intestinal flora or incontinence.
An Austrian inventor has created a filter designed to eliminate odors and noise that can occur when passing gas. Leopold Trimmel said that he has given people something they needed but they were too embarrassed to discuss
The company's website describes the passage of gas as a "normal process" and advises that your product be inserted better after a bowel movement.
The user can continue with their daily activities with the 6×40 mm product that is "automatically" removed during the next bowel movement and can remain in the toilet.
Mr. Trimmel said that with 'oxxxo Bodykat', he has given people something they needed, but they were too embarrassed to argue.
The inventor said that he had always "wanted to invent something that everyone needs", but that some people think that he He's pulling his leg when he tells them about his invention.
He said: I've scrambled a wasp nest. Except that nobody talks about that.
He added: "We use perfumes, deodorants and everything that is possible to deal with the smells, but to the intestinal intestinal gases … For this there was no solution, until now".

After applying for a patent for eight years throughout the European Union, the inventor has finally received one and is now looking for business partners so that mass production can begin after receiving 30,000 orders.
Currently, it can be ordered online since Mr. Trimmel is convinced that people will find it more discreet.
He said: "It's still a taboo subject, the inhibition level of ordering something like that online is less than having to pay him in the pharmacy's box."
