Inspiration

What is Urine Drainage Bag?

Urine drainage bags collect urine. The bag will attach to a catheter (tube) that is inside your bladder. You may have a catheter and urine drainage bag because you have urinary incontinence (leakage), urinary retention (not being able to urinate), surgery that made a catheter necessary, or another health problem.

Pain Points

What if you become catheter user?

User Interview

James

“Running with a catheter isn’t an easy thing to do, I’m feeling sore through the tube jostling, plus what you do about the leg bag.”

“When I go out, I feel ashamed to bring a urine bag. I spend more time at home, which is not good for my health.”

Katherine
