Berth on sailboat

Solution for persons with incontinence problems.

Each of the long sides of the saloon has a sofa. A large double bed can be formed by placing a wood board between the sofas with a mattress on top. The board has a semicircular opening through which the catheter bag can be placed. At night the user has a urinary condom and a bag with a long tube.

Authors comments
Urine may leak if the catheter bag has a short tube; this risk is greatly reduced by using a long tube. The urine bag can sit on the floor.
