A McGuire urinal is composed of an elastic waistband, also known as a suspensory garment, with an attachable sheath. The flexible sheath connects to the fabric waistband using snap closures. The waistband has either a lace up or velcro fastener at the back for a secure fit. This system is a comfortable solution for men who experience surge or overflow incontinence. The sheath urinal is an alternative to adult diapers or liners and can easily be worn during the day. All of the components are washable and can be reused, making it an economical solution for incontinence.
There are different sheath styles available to use with your McGuire urinal system. One type of sheath has an adapter at the tip that allows it to work with any type of tubing and urinary leg bag. Other sheaths have a specific connector that only works with a McGuire-style leg bag from the same brand. A McGuire leg bag includes tubing that has a special connector at the end, allowing it to be used only with a sheath urinal. It is important to verify which type of leg bag works with your sheath before purchasing.
A urine bag holder is designed to keep your catheter bag in place on your leg. This product is available in the form of straps or a fabric sleeve. Le g bag straps can be made out of fabric or a rubber material. Some straps have a velcro closure, while others have button fasteners. A cloth holder is an effective alternative to straps. This sleeve-like garment goes around your calf or thigh and has a pocket that the bag slips into, preventing it from coming into contact with your skin.
