Description
Under the mattress is a custom-sewn sheet that hangs down on the side. Pockets sewn on the side are used to store catheters and the remote control device for the bed.

Users comments
When the user goes to bed she asks her assistants to prepare a catheter by opening the package and connecting it to the urine bag. These preparations allow her to drain her bladder independently at night.

The sheet is discreet and the pockets are barely visible.
