Hi, I’m Willy and I am the Manfred Sauer mascot. I have been a part of the UK company for over 25 years and enjoy every minute.

My key role within the company is to get people talking about continence and urology. Forget the stiff upper lip and let’s get talking!

Urinary incontinence is NOT an inevitable consequence of getting old, having had children, or a disability. So why should we keep it to ourselves? It’s far better to be open and get some help and support.

Did you know that the NHS estimates that between 3 and 6 million people in the UK have some degree of urinary incontinence? Only 1 in 5 women affected by the condition seek help—more than 10% of men aged 65 and over have urinary incontinence to some degree.

So, if you are suffering, you are not alone! Maybe it’s time to pick up the phone and ask for some help. You may like to call our Helpline on 01604 595696 where someone will be more than willing to point you in the right direction.

I like to get people chatting about various products too. Here at Manfred Sauer, we have a range of urinary sheaths; some great specialist drainage bags; our NephSys which is a secure and comfortable solution for anyone with a nephrostomy in place; and if you haven’t yet come across our URIbag (pocket-sized urinals) you really should take a look.

Apart from being enthusiastic about getting people talking, my other great love is travel. I have been to some wonderful places both in the UK (I love the West Country) and overseas including Jamaica, Dubai, Canada, USA, and Spain. I love the camera so in my next blog I will share with you some of the places I have been in more detail along with some holiday snaps.

Bye for now and don’t forget … Get talking!
