  • leg bags

    I recently ran out of freedom leg bags. I know they don't make them anymore. I was wondering what other c5 quads used that are easy to open and shut.

    Do you use a manual or power wheelchair? I have rarely known anyone with a C5 injury (no triceps) who was able to manage a leg bag of any type without using an electronic or mechanical leg bag emptier (which can be added to just about any leg bag).

    Have you tried a Bard Flip-Flo?
    Have you tried a Hollister 9349?

      I use a power chair. I can lean over and flip it down and then use the tilt function on my chair to get back up. The freedom bag was nice the valve handle is tipped out. I'll look at your suggestions thanks
