  • Catheter valves

    I just replaced the collection bag attacked to my Foley catheter with a flip flo valve. This is much more convenient than the bag. I just open the valve every few hours and direct the urine into the toilet. The valve also allows your bladder to collect urine and not be empty all the time which is more...
