    My Dad has been intermittent cathing during the day (3x per day) and placing a foley overnight for almost 3yrs. He uses a clean foley each night and washes and re-uses collection bags. I believe there is someone on this site that cleans their foleys and re-uses, but now i forget who..... Smokey, I think, does intermittent cathing during the day, inserts a straight catheter at night and tapes it down (!) and leave it in place overnight to drain (see his post above). A touchless system might be risky, since those don't hold a lot of urine.....
