Patient organisation comments
The Urostomy Association gave the following comments on U‑Drain.
They noted that the U‑Drain is significantly different to current treatment options for people needing night urine drainage. Although it cannot improve health outcomes, U‑Drain could be a useful alternative to night drainage bags.
People considering U‑Drain need to be fully aware of all of the options for urine drainage before making a decision. It is important to note, for example, that people who choose U‑Drain may not be able to get night drainage bags on prescription anymore, and these are needed when they wish to stay away from home.
