Uro-Safe incontinence bags are made from heavy duty vinyl for extended wear, odor containment, and leak resistance. Each leg drainage bag is also equipped with a Little Red Anti-Reflux Valve. Some Urocare brand leg bags have a patented thumb clamp valve that make opening and closing the leg bag easy, especially for those with limited dexterity.
Express Medical Supply also carries a variety of Leg Bag Holders to keep the urine pouch securely in place. A urine bag holder can be in the form of straps or a fabric sleeve that goes around the leg. The straps stay secured via velcro, buttons, or tabs. Urinary leg bag covers can either wrap around the thigh or calf, depending on personal preference.
A Catheter Night Bag is a larger capacity bedside drainage bag that prevents leaks from happening while sleeping. The night drainage bag includes extra long catheter tubing which allows for freedom of movement while sleeping. The overnight drainage bags easily hook to a bed post or catheter bag stand and have an anti-reflux valve to prevent backflow.
A helpful item to go along with a home catheter is a Night Drainage Bottle. It is a plastic container that collects urinary drainage overnight. A catheter tube connects to the opening of the drain bottle, which can hold anywhere from 2000-4000 cc's of liquid. These bottles are reusable and have a wide base to prevent tipping.
If you are going to be using a catheter drainage bag or drainage bottle overnight, having extra Catheter Tubing on hand is essential. Catheter tubes can be cut to your desired length and are made of materials such as vinyl, latex, and rubber. Catheter clamps are combined with medical tubing to control the flow of urine output to the tube. Some catheter tubing includes a clamp, or the items can be purchased separately.
