Urological care consists of more than just managing incontinence. From the doctors’ office to assisted living facilities, to even traditional care at home, the little things that make up urological care make a big difference. Here are some of the most important urological products you may not recognize as such:

Bedpans and Urinals

Bedpans and urinals are in every hospital and every assistive care facility, and they are one of the most common urological care items on the market. These devices catch a patient’s excrement while they’re lying in bed. Bedpans are a go-to for hospitals since many patients are bedridden for a while. They also work well for people who suffer from incontinence, especially while sleeping.

Leg Bags

Leg bags, just like bedpans, can be useful for those who are bedridden or struggle with nightly incontinence. Bedside drainage bags and wheelchair bags are designed specifically for this purpose, while the average leg bag is meant for daily use. Since they can attach to a catheter, leg bags act as an on-the-go form of storage for those who struggle with incontinence daily, allowing them to stay active without worrying about leaks.

 

Stoma Care

Another form of urological care comes with stomas. Ostomies are life-saving procedures that reroute the body’s excretions to a surgically created opening, called a stoma. Stomas require their own special care procedures and products, including drainage bags, tubes, cleaning supplies, and skin barriers. Although the type of care required is different, urine can be redirected through a stoma, making ostomy products urological nonetheless.

Clinical Supplies

Among the many assistive devices in urological care lie the clinical supplies. These include collection containers for urine samples, pH test strips, and other diagnostic supplies. Irrigation aids and syringes allow doctors to clear a patient’s urinary tract without surgery.

Accessories

Urological accessories, including catheter accessories and the like, are more likely to be purchased for an individual user. For example, someone who uses a leg bag might need adhesive or a leg bag sheath to help them stay comfortable on the go. Wheelchair users struggling with incontinence may benefit from drainage bags that attach to their wheelchairs, and extension tubes that allow their catheter to reach the bag itself.
