Mobility Accessories Electric Leg Bag Emptier

Electric Leg Bag Emptier

The Electric Leg Bag Emptier (ELBE) enables the user to drain his or her leg bag at their convenience, with no outside help, an ability many thought unattainable.
The Power Wheelchair version operates using the wheelchair batteries (24 volts) and comes with a push button switch. The Manual Wheelchair version has a battery charger and its own battery pack.

What is it?
This device consists of a small, light weight valve that connects to the bottom of the leg bag. The size of the valve makes it easy to conceal under a pant leg for privacy. The switch used to operate the emptier can be located anywhere on the wheelchair, depending on individual needs, and is operated by simply pressing a button.

Who is it for?
The product is suited to wheelchair users that are unable to bend down far enough or have the detexterity to operate the leg bag valve on a standard leg bag. For people that do not have function in their arms, a puff switch is available.

What are the Benefits?
With this ability product users are able to increase their fluid intake because they are independent in draining their leg bag. This in turn reduces the frequency of urinary tract infections.

Under normal operating conditions the battery needs charging only once a week.
A battery and charger are available for use with a manual wheelchair.
