- Leg bags are worn on the leg, generally around the upper thigh. They can also be worn attached to the calf or a wheelchair frame.
- We stock bags in 500ml, 750ml and 800ml sizes. Choose a bag based on how frequently you can empty it and how discrete you would like it to appear under clothing.
- Bags come with elasticated straps with either velcro or button closures. We also sell a washable leg bag holder which is made of very lightweight stretchy material and holds the bag comfortably in position.
- We offer sterile and non-sterile leg bags. The non-sterile bags are made for use with externally fitted catheters like the uridome and urinary pouch.
- There are a few options when it comes to the inlet tube on a leg bag. This is the length of tubing between the end of the catheter and the top of the bag. You can choose a bag with a 10cm and 30cm inlet tube, however, if you prefer a different size the bags with a 50cm inlet tube and can be cut to length.
- Bags are available with a flip valve or t-valve for drainage, you may prefer one or the other based on your hand dexterity.
- Overnight bags have a 2-litre capacity and should be more than sufficient for urinary output while sleeping.
- We sell a drainage bag hanger than can be used to hang these bags from a bed frame, or similar.
- 2lt drainage bags are available in either a 1m or 1.2m inlet tube.
- You can choose from a bag with a flip valve or t-valve for drainage, you may find one or the other easier based on your dexterity.
- We sell one bag that is single-use and one that is reusable. The reuse of drainage bags is suitable when connecting to leg bags or external (condom) catheters only. Customers connecting directly to Foley or Suprapubic (indwelling) catheters should use new, sterile drainage bags on each occasion.
