Tefillin if attached to catheter

Question: [Thursday 23rd Menachem Av, 5780]

May one who is attached to a catheter wear Tefillin?



Yes. It is Mutar to Daven, wear Tefillin, learn Torah etc while attached to a catheter, being that the urine is covered. It is best for the urine bag to also be covered.
