    I really like the mini pocket pack catheter kits. Really small , easy to pack and they contain everything. I get them from Summit Express. Steves a great guy who owns the company. He will send you samples and works with you and your insurance. He has been great in helping me the last six years. His # is 888-269-6605 Steve Gottlieb. SummitExpressMedical@yahoo.com. Shoot him an email and feel free to tell him Joe Monte from Pa. He will take good care of you. Best of luck.

    Lightbulb It is Still in development but this might be an alternative.

    Smokey, There is a new company by the name "Spinal Singularity" http://www.spinalsingularity.com/ Here is an Indo Go Go Campaign for their latest development: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/t...ularity#/story Here is a youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=KhKBgcHnlpk 1) Pass ON THE WORD. 2) If you think think you would like to contribute, do so. 3) Help Captain Derek Herrera develop his new device that might help more on this website.

    That's neat. It would have been nice if the site could provide more information about it.

    Interesting, but I don't see how it's really much better than an indwelling catheter. The catheter remains in your bladder 28 days? Do you need to wear a piss bag? Use an overnight bedside drainage bag?

    Thx Joe. Exactly which mini pocket pack catheter kits you talking about? I probably need one that has a piss bag attached.

    "The user will then go to a bathroom where they can safely empty their bladder by squeezing the duckbill check valve at the base of the penis. The user will be able to control emptying of the bladder by applying a gentle amount of pressure to the valve (similar to a CamelBak Bite Valve).
    "
    I guess it depends on how you look at it. You could say its the same as indwelling cath except you arent emptying a bag because it "tells" you when you have to go. Or you could say its the same as cathing your normal amount of times per day except you arent inserting and removing caths 4 or 6 times each day. I like this idea and cant wait to see where it goes. I'd like to see them add an option to use a drainage bag, just incase you want or may need to go that route. Having options is nice.

    Anyways, I just switch to 'Coloplast Speedicath' and I like them alot. They are pre lubed. Makes the process quicker and cleaner IMO.

    haha That was good.

    Yes, at home I use the plastic urinals. And when im out I carry around an empty gatorade bottle. I save the bottles after I drink the gatorade so I can rotate out a fresh bottle often.
