What is a Urinary Leg Bag?
A leg bag is a device used to collect and hold urine. It is worn on the leg and it can be worn above or below the knee. Leg bags can be attached directly to a Foley catheter or an external condom catheter. If you would rather wear your leg bag on your calf, the leg bag can be attached to extension tubing which would then connect to your catheter. Leg bags are versatile. They are available in many different styles and sizes. Even the straps come in many different styles. There are button closures, Velcro, and leg bag straps that close with Velcro but the bag itself attaches to the straps with buttons. Don't be afraid to try different styles until you find the leg bag set up that works best for you. If you don't like straps at all, consider a leg bag holder. [More]
