NEW to Optimum Medical, our Ugo Pro Leg Bag range!

NEW to Optimum Medical, our Ugo Pro Leg Bag range!

As specialists in urology and infection prevention products, we always have the comfort of patients and healthcare professionals at the forefront on our minds. So, naturally it made sense for us to extend our existing Ugo Leg Bag range to include a range of leg bags which contain a pair of disposable gloves and apron in every pouch. We call them our Ugo Pro Leg Bags!

It has been well documented over recent years that the highest incidences of healthcare associated infections are related to indwelling catheters. In the UK alone, catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) costs the NHS and private organisations approximately £86 million every year (more than £1,600 per episode).1 Evidence from EPIC3 suggests that microorganisms which cause CAUTI gain access to the urinary tract through a variety of routes, including potentially via a contaminated urine drainage bag.2 Our Ugo Pro Leg Bag range has been specially designed to help reduce the risk of CAUTI by including a pair of sterile, disposable gloves and apron with every Ugo Pro Leg Bag to help maintain aseptic technique.

Available in 500ml capacity with a choice of tube length and T-Tap or Lever tap drainage options, Ugo Pro Leg Bags provide a cost-effective solution where sterile, disposable items such as gloves and apron may not be readily available in a community setting. Our new Ugo Pro Leg Bags also aim to improve efficiency, leaving more time for what’s important, caring for patients.
