Deficiencies of presently available external male urinary incontinence appliances have led to the development of the device described herein. The device applies intermittent pressure about the anterior penis with force concentration on ventral surface, transmitting occlusive force to urethra. Healthy volunteer evaluation has shown no observable loss to tissue viability or vascular impairment to the distal penis following device application.
