This year, PVA Summit attendees who attended the event expo in Jacksonville, FL also had the opportunity to meet representatives for the Melio Self-Emptying Leg Bag System and Community Medical Products (CMP), one of the urology suppliers that offers Melio to their customers that include veterans, health care facilities and consumers. CMP also launched MiWay Self Catheterization Aids, GripSolutions, and the #1 Urinal at the PVA event.
The new Melio Self-Emptying Leg Bag System© empties your leg bag with a push of a button – and it tells you when it’s time. Created by a British inventor who wanted to help his father who had suffered a stroke, Melio was born out of a desire to restore independence and dignity for leg bag users worldwide.
“Presenting the Melio Self-Emptying Leg Bag System at this year’s Paralyzed Veterans of America Summit in Jacksonville, Florida last week was quite gratifying,” says Jim McHargue, President of Community Medical Products.
“The group, made up largely of VA hospital clinicians, educators, PVA members and PVA executives, immediately saw the potential improvement in quality of life that the Melio system can deliver. Its’ ease of use, low cost and potential health benefits were positives to the audience. A number of clinicians identified patients they felt could benefit from Melio and post-show feedback has been extremely positive,” McHargue continues.
