Online PR News – 19-June-2015 – GA – [Liverpool, England, UK] June 16, 2015 - Albert Medical Devices, maker of Melio -- the revolutionary self-emptying leg bag system that you can control with a touch of a button (and tells you when it's time), proudly announces a new self-pay option from Community Medical for US leg bag users.

"Community Medical is family-owned and serves urology customers, rehab clinics and government healthcare facilities nationwide with medical products and supplies. We are thrilled to partner with them to expand the options available to US consumers who wish to obtain Melio without dealing with insurance paperwork.

Urinary leg bags are commonly used by people who have neurogenic bladder due to paralysis, multiple sclerosis or another condition.

"We are very pleased to be partnering with Albert Medical Devices in the launch of the Melio system. The product addresses an underlying but largely unserved need in a patient and user community eager for solutions that are up to meeting their daily challenges. The Melio system will change lives," Community Medical President Jim McHargue shares.

How Melio Works

The integrated sensor in the Melio Self-Emptying Leg Bag System© monitors the urine bag level, sending a signal to the wearer's controller when the leg bag is approximately 2/3 full. Worn on the waistband, Melio's controller alerts the wearer when the leg bag is approximately 2/3 full via a flashing light and discreet vibration.

The device also features an audio alarm. When the wearer is ready to empty the urine bag, they simply push the button on the top or bottom of the controller to activate the pump. For users with limited dexterity, a magnetic bracelet can be worn and used to activate the pump. Users simply hold the bracelet against the front of the controller to activate it.

Additionally, users can empty the urine bag without raising their leg using Melio's extended Discharge Tube. Different tube lengths are available to meet individual needs. Both the tube and controller can be worn under clothing or tucked it into the wearer's waistband for easy access. The Leg Bag, Pump and Discharge Tube are an integrated, disposable unit. The system's controller is rechargeable and is designed to last for years with reasonable care.
