Current work process for bedpans

Steel bedpans and urinals are inefficient to use and cleaning them for re-use takes a long time. As many separate actions are involved, the nurses touch bedpans and urinals many times and therefore have to disinfect their hands just as frequently.

The Olla process

Seating comfort

The Olla is much easier to sit on than a traditional steel bedpan and because of its bioplastic surface, it doesn’t feel hot or cold.

Designed with the patient in mind

The bedpan is easy to use and its ergonomically shaped seat is comfortable. If necessary, a handle can be attached to the Olla’s side.


The Olla’s structural design

Thanks to our smart design, the Olla can support up to 150 kg (approx. 330lb). The elevated front also makes it easy for women to use the Olla.


Partition and scale markings

Urine and faeces are separated, so taking samples for further examination is simple. This, in turn, makes it possible to start treatment sooner. The scale markings in the Olla clearly show the volume of fluids.



The lid provided with Olla seals the bedpan completely, so no unpleasant odours can escape. The membranes in the lid allow for samples to be taken for examination after the lid has been closed.

The most important features

Design innovation

The bedpan's oval shape ensures seating comfort for both men and women. The partition makes it possible to collect urine separately.


The biopolymer the Olla is made of is 100% biodegradable in the Pharmafilter installation.

A cleaner environment

The Olla bedpan is for single use and is completely ground up and disposed of by the Tonto. This means no bedpan washer is required, saving a lot of water.

Making work easier

The Olla is more hygienic in use and weighs just 400 grams (approx. 0.9 pounds).

Optional extras

For even greater ease of use, the Olla can also be supplied with a lid and handle.
