Don’t Put Off That Trip Any Longer!
If you suffer from male urinary incontinence, you might be hesitant to travel for long distances- especially if you’ll need to travel by plane. You might wonder if the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will even let you on the plane, what with all the new security measures at the airport these days.
However, there is no reason why you can’t travel by plane with Men’s Liberty. With just a few steps to take in advance of your trip, flying should be as easy for you as it is for anyone else.
Travel in Confidence with Men’s Liberty
Here are a few tips for traveling with Men’s Liberty- or really, tips for traveling with an external catheter of any variety:
- Contact the airline. Before you book your trip, contact the airline to see if there are any special procedures involved in traveling with external catheters. Let them know the type of equipment you’ll need to bring along to make sure it will meet the TSA guidelines.
- Be prepared with the correct documentation. To help make travel easier for users of Men’s Liberty, we’ve drafted a letter you can bring with you and give the TSO. It explains your condition and what exactly the Men’s Liberty product consists of to make things clearer for them. You should also print out the TSA Notification Card, which lets the TSO know of your medical condition.
- Inform the Transportation Security Officer (TSO). Discreetly notify the TSO of your specific condition prior to security screening. According to the TSA guidelines, it’s important that passengers inform TSOs if they have catheters or other medical devices, as well as where they are located. This will require additional screening, such as a patdown or physical inspection of the device if it is not in a sensitive area. You can also request a private screening.
