    MDI Rehab leg bags discontinued rant

    Hey everyone,
    I am beyond mad that the MDI 87004 leg bags were discontinued.
    I started using them first when I got hurt at the rehab facility 12 years ago.
    They still have these leg bags but a different type without the extension tubing and clamp at the bottom. (Picture below)

    I have found a way to hack the MDI leg bag and forcefully remove the bottom blue clamp thingy and stick a 3 inch extension tube on there from the Bard leg bag.

    Basically I have to buy another *bard dispoz-a-bag* leg bag and transfer the bottom extension tubing with a clamp onto the MDI bag

    This gets kind of expensive buying 2 bags instead of 1.

    Do any of you use these leg bags?
    I'm looking if I could buy just the extension tubing from the bard disposable bag instead of purchasing the leg bags. Probably save me some money.
    I'm just mad that a company basically discontinues a product that has been used by so many people over the years without even doing any type of survey.
