The Neurogenic Bladder (NB) is a vesical disorder due to a medullar injury. The related complications are: urinary incontinence, urinary tract infection, vesicoureteral reflux, hydronephosis, which can lead to the kidney deterioration and death. Worldwide, the intermittent vesical catheterization is the first choice treatment. It must be done from four to six times a day, during the whole life, aiming the protection of the superior urinal tract and the urinary incontinence. Although, on the rehabilitation of these people, the self vesical catheterization is a challenge faced in order to reach autonomy, privacy, social insertion and participation.
