The skin may be trapped between the upper and lower parts upon closing the device. The solution is built into the Pacey Cuff where a pinch prevention foam flap prevents skin from becoming lodged between the two parts. The best policy is to be sure that the skin is not trapped each time you close the Pacey Cuff by inspecting the area.
The Pacey Cuff has a unique degree of closure for each individual person. The number required to control urine flow is found by individual testing. The number, indicating pressure, can be increased if leaking occurs. A thin pad used in combination with the Cuff may be used to capture occasional drops of urine
