  • leg bag sleeve vs leg bag straps?

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone had tried a leg bag sleeve for holding their leg bag instead of straps?

    Bard make one called the Urisleeve http://www.bardmedical.co.uk/URISLEEVELegBagHolder

    and I think this is it https://www.amazon.com/Carer-Comfort...rc=detail&th=1

    and here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Carer-Cathe...ords=urisleeve

    there are some others too like this one https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06X3WHX8X...d_w=SBnYD&th=1


    Anyway, has anyone tried any of these or anything like it and how was it?

    I thought there would have been a post on here about them already.

    The reviews on amazon seem mixed.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    I've used this one for years, worn below my knee. I use it with the 32 ounce Urocare disposable vinyl leg bag. The 18 ounce leg bag works best in this holder, but that size isn't large enough for my needs. It works okay with the larger bag. These holders come in small, medium, and large to accommodate different leg sizes. See: https://www.urocare.com/EN/Products/FrbcLgBgHldrsEN.php

      What is the benefit of all that vs. 2 straps?

        For me, the bag is more comfortable, secure and the weight of the urine in the bag is more evenly supported, not just at two points on my leg. My legs are very thin and the bag stays in place better than with straps.

          Hi,

          Thanks for the replies, I hadn't seen any notifications. Ah cool, so someone has tried them. They do look a bit comfier, but I'm wondering why most people don't seem to use them? Anyone else tried them?

          Thanks,

          Rob

            It may be that they tend to be small and so only seem to accommodate smaller leg bags. They are also more expensive than leg straps.

              Truthfully, I didn't know such a thing existed before this thread!

                I tried them once with a latex bag and it was a bit of a PITA to get the bag in and out of the cloth holder. The latex was "sticky" and resisted slipping into the holder. Using baby powder on the bag prior to putting it in the holder helped some, but it was still easier to use straps. I think the holder would work well with a vinyl bag, however. I prefer the wide Urocare fabric straps when using straps, by the way.

                    Hi,

                    Yeah I had never seen them before till last week online. If they only fit smaller bags maybe that is why most people don't use them. What size of leg bag do use with it gjnl?

                    I think it would be handy because my assistants are always fastening the leg bag straps at different tensions either too tight or too loose.

                    Thanks,

                    Rob

                      I use it with a Urocare 32 ounce disposable vinyl bag. It fits in the bag like this. I wear it below the knee as in the first of the two pictures above.

                        I've used a mesh sleeve for 4 years, my support workers find them easy to use and stay in position, skinny legs and straps don't seem to work as well for me. Always take care not to have my compression socks/socks and mesh not starting at same place on my leg to avoid pressure. Sit on my calves so easy to empty the bag when needed.
