DO-IT-YOURSELF-ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To provide individuals with neurological disabilities greater freedom in meeting toileting needs when away from home. This device is a faux leather bag attached to a wheelchair, which houses a sealed holding tank. A Bard bed urinary bag, which holds twice the amount of a large leg bag, was used. The sealed holding tank connects to the individual via tubing and a catheter, which is changed daily. The pouch is suspended from the underside of the wheelchair seat (most seats have holes where screws can be attached). Another piece of faux leather that matches the wheelchair upholstery can be attached to the front of the chair to entirely cover the pouch. Another pouch can be added in the back to hold a radio or speaker. Velcro secures the flaps. The Web site article includes diagrams for making this pouch. MATERIALS: Faux leather, eyebolts, clips, grommets, Velcro, black electrical tape, urinary bed bag, catheter, and tubing. TOOLS: Scissors, drill, and sewing machine. SKILLS REQUIRED: Assembly, sewing, and cutting. TITLE: Doing It Yourself. JOURNAL: Quest. REF: Volume 14, Number 1, January/February 2007.
