Incontinence is no longer a problem with the Sheath Urinal. Fits like an athletic supporter. Great for active men and also those confined to bed or wheelchairs. Sheath urinal, rubber tube and drainage bag (attached to leg) are undetectable so you can be comfortable and confident.
I have been using this product for more than a year and by now I have worked the bugs out. The hose for the bag kept pulling out so I used a 7/16 "O" ring to hold the connector in place on the sheath. The next was to use a catheter holder (leg band) to hold the hose to the bag in place on the upper part of my leg. This can be purchased at any medical supply store. I use what is called a Folley Bag at night when I go to bed. The bag is on the floor and it holds much more then the leg bag, so now I can sleep all night without filling the small bag. Actually more comfortable and I don't have to worry about leakage because eveything goes into the big bag on the floor. In the morning when I get up I change to the smaller leg bag and I am ready for the day with no worries of leakage or sogginess. A tip for those having trouble with the sheath. When disconnecting from belt for cleaning or whatever, put your thumb nails in the metal snaps between the belt and the sheath and just pry them apart. This is very useful and reduces tearing of the sheath. Wash sheath using soap and hot water. It will last longer. SAVE PARTS such as connectors and so forth from old worn items. When I started using the big Folley bag it was one I kept when I got out of the hospital. At the end of the long hose is a connector that you can plug another hose into and if you had save the connector from a bad leg bag you can plug it into a 6 inch piece of hose and push the other end onto the hose from the Folley bag. Now you can screw this into the end connector on the sheath. Works fine-last long time. And one last word about everything. All things wear out over a period of time so it is always helpful to have a spare on hand. I found that the bags will last almost a year if cleaned properly so I always clean the bag I am taking off which means I clean the little one at night and the big one in the morning. I use an old sheath to screw onto the hose to the bag I am rinsing out and that way I can fill the bag with hot water and then of course empty. That way you don't end up growing stange things in the bags. Again, leg bands, Folley bags and even hoses can all be purchased at any medical supply store. Hope this information is useful.
