Description
The user stores everything he needs to be able to drain his bladder at night in a fabric bag with a loop. The bag contains a catheter, catheter bag, toilet paper, a small bottle of hand rub, wheelchair gloves, and other things that easily could disappear between the pillows, like a book or alarm clock.
The catheter is kept in place with a rubber band attached to the loop of the bag to prevent it from falling out of the bag. The wheelchair gloves are used when turning in bed for better friction. The hand rub has skin-friendly tape to be able to hold it more easily.
During the night the bag sits on the wheelchair handle and is easily accessible.

Users comments
By having draining materials accessible from bed the user does not have to get up at night, which saves time and energy.
