Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0000116A1] The present invention relates to a female adult urine management device (10) designed to provide improved body fit between the flange and the skin of the wearer and thereby prevent leakage. The urine management device (10) comprises a bag (11) having an aperture (13), and a flange (12), which surrounds the aperture (21). The flange (12) provides for adhesive attachement to the uro-genital area of the wearer. In particular, the rear portion (46) of the flange comprises a projection (48), which provides an effective seal between the flange (12) and the skin of the wearer and prevents leakage to the urinary tract. In particular the device (10) fits snugly between the labia and the anus and thereby improves sealing. In another aspect of the present invention, projection acts as a application to assist in the easy and correct positioning of the device.
