A Hollister urinary leg bag is a latex-free incontinence bag that connects to a male external condom catheter to collect urine drainage. Hollister pouches feature a vented bag and tubing that prevent unwanted odor. This allows air into the system, which also eliminates the "vacuum effect". All Hollister urinary drainage bags contain an anti-reflux valve and are available with oval extension tubing to keep the fluid pathway open. You can purchase a Hollister urine catheter bag individually or as a set with leg bag straps included.
If you choose to purchase a Hollister urinary leg bag individually, there are several leg bag straps and holders to select from. A urine bag holder is designed to stabilize your leg bag and is available in a reusable or disposable variety. Leg straps for catheter bags are secured with buttons or velcro to keep it in the correct position. We also carry a cotton fabric leg pouch that can be worn on the thigh or calf. You can position the wrap so that the bag is worn on the inside or outside of your leg, depending on preference. This type of catheter bag cover keeps the drain bag from coming in contact with your skin.
Leg bag tubing and clamps are used along with a catheter to control the flow and drainage of urine. Leg bag tubing is available in various lengths and materials, such as vinyl, latex, and silicone. You may need to use longer catheter tubing if you are using an overnight catheter bag or bottle to allow for movement during sleep. Clamps are available in different formats, but all of them are designed to restrict and regulate the flow of urine. Other urinary catheter accesories include the Little Red Anti-Reflux Valve, which helps prevent back flow to an external catheter.
One popular type of Hollister male external catheter is an InView catheter. This latex free catheter is made from transparent silicone which allows the user to monitor the health of the skin. The material helps resist kinks, which prevents urine from flowing back up the catheter tubing. Because this urological catheter is 70 percent more adhesive than standard and special sheaths, it does not require the use of additional adhesive. These Hollister urinary products can be worn for up to 24 hours and are ideal for daily use.
