Emptying your leg bag just got a lot easier.

Imagine being able to empty your own urine leg bag with just the touch of a button or wave of your wrist. That’s life with the Melio Self-Emptying Leg Bag System

Here’s how this innovative, closed system transforms this routine, yet important, task.

  • The integrated Sensor in the Melio Self-Emptying Leg Bag System monitors the urine bag level, sending a signal to the Controller when the leg bag is approximately 2/3 full.
  • The Controller on your waistband alerts you when the leg bag is approximately 2/3 full via a flashing amber light and a discreet vibration, You can also turn on an audio alarm.
  • When you’re ready to empty the urine bag, simply push the buttons on the top or bottom of the Controller to activate the Pump. If you have limited dexterity, you can use the magnetic bracelet to activate the Pump—simply hold the bracelet against the front of the Controller.
  • You can empty the urine bag without raising your leg using the extended Discharge Tube. Place the tube under your clothing and tuck it into your waistband for easy access.

The Leg Bag, Pump and Discharge Tube are an integrated, disposable unit. The Controller is rechargeable and is designed to last years with reasonable care.
