The user has a suprapubic catheter. In order to be able to drain his bladder without assistance he devised a holder for the urine tube. The holder is a potato masher without a handle that he stores between his legs. When he needs to use it, he places it in a holder on the wheelchair (see associated tip). The urine tube, which goes directly into the bladder, was lengthened. On the end is a valve taken from a urine bag. A key ring sits in the flap of the valve. The tube lies under his shirt.
To drain the bladder he places the potato masher upside down in the wheelchair attachment, uses the mouth stick to pull out the urine tube and attaches the tube by threading it over the potato masher so that the flap sits in place. He drives up to the toilet so that the urine runs directly into the toilet. He inserts his finger into the key ring to open the valve and drains his bladder. The valve closes without using the key ring.
The potato masher is stored between his legs and is also used as a holder for the mouth stick and snuff container, which are therefore always accessible.
This device represented tremendous freedom for the user. Since he can take care of going to the toilet without assistance he can now manage on his own for a long time during the day. Even if he is out, urinating is not a problem.
The user spends much of his time in the kitchen when solving problems and therefore he often uses kitchen utensils.
