A revolutionary urine drainage system that replaces night drainage bags and bottles, providing a dignified night’s sleep.
What is U-drain?
The U-drain system is permanently fitted by experts into an individual’s home. With a lot of the component hidden behind the bedroom wall, all that is on show is a wall socket the size of a telephone socket, which is placed by the side of the bed about 30cm up from the floor. The socket is connected to the house drainage system so fluid can easily drain away behind the scenes and removes the need for night drainage bags, giving an individual a much more dignified night’s sleep.
How does it work?
An easy device to use, individual’s or carers can connect the urostomy appliance or leg bag to the wall socket at night, and any urine or dialysis fluid flows away effortlessly. Carers can simply disconnect in the morning and use a specialist syringe to flush the tubing with water and disinfectant.
The tubing that connects the individual to the socket needs changing every seven days or every day in the case of automated peritoneal dialysis.
Fitted with a one-way valve, U-drain eliminates odours and stops back flow
Who is U-drain suitable for?
U-drain is suitable for individuals with the one or more of the following:
- Urostomy Pouch Wearers
- Catheter & Leg-Bag Wearers
- Sheath Wearers
- Urinal Users
- Paraplegics & Quadriplegics
- Automated Peritoneal Dialysis Patients.
If you or the person you care for uses a urine night drainage bag or bottle, then U-drain could make a huge difference. U-drain removes the need for night bags to be changed during the night, along with the removal of the smell of stale urine and no sticky dialysate.
U-drain is available on prescription and is more cost effective than night drainage bags
