Latex does have a distinct odor which varies from batch to batch. At times, usually during the hot summer months, this odor can become strong.
Urocare has listened to requests to reduce or eliminate this odor. Since this odor can not be entirely eliminated at present, Urocare is
developing and testing latex bags that are scented which greatly reduces the odor to minimal levels that are virtually undetectable leaving
behind only a mild fresh scent. If this process is successful, it may be applied to all our latex products. As we progress with our prototype
testing phase, more information will be posted here.

We don't give odor a chance! By adding a special odor control barrier to the inside and outside of our reusable latex leg bags and urinal sheaths,
Urocare's latex appliances are ODOR-FREE, not just odor-resistant; thereby preventing embarrassing odor problems before they start.

In the original anti-reflux valve inception, the valve lips were designed in a "flat" fashion similar to those found in other flutter valves; however,
this presented a problem during the molding process where the lips were always open. To resolve this issue, clips were added to each side of the lips to
keep them closed. Over the years, Urocare has listened to requests from it's customers to increase flow rates on its well known Little Red Valve™
the anti-reflux valve found in its reusable and disposable urine collection appliances which has undergone three major design changes since 1975.

The growing requirement to translate product labeling highlights the importance of using symbols. The use of internationally recognized symbols and marks
is the only effective way to meet the requirements of a global market. To that end Urocare has adopted a universal standard for reference symbols used in
the labeling its products (EN 980). Look for these symbols on all future products.
