The article deals with biomechanical research of properties of bottles for Redon drainage, which is used in treatment for removal of unwanted fluids from the human body. Several measurements were made of vacuum, tightness and the amount of drained fluid and also a stress analysis of bottle walls using the finite elements method. The results (operating characteristics, mechanical properties) are important basis for the introduction of the product in normal medical practice. The collected data can be used to deduce the correct use of drains during treatment.
