Portable urine collection system.

UrAssist[TM] is a discreet, portable urine collection and containment system developed for men and women with limited mobility suffering from urge or functional incontinence. Created by Preferred Medical Devices, UrAssist uses vacuum pump-assisted technology. The battery-operated system, which draws urine from a collection cup through a plastic tube into a collection bag that stores a day's amount of urine, easily attaches to most wheelchairs and scooters. The collection bag is stored within the unit, which has audio and visual alarms to alert users when the bag is full. UrAssist is easy to maintain and the rechargeable battery lasts up to two weeks between chargings.
