Info

Design and development of an ergonomic leg bag and a bed bag for mobile and immobile people. The human excretion is an action connected to a lot of taboos and embarrassment. If somebody’s excretion is not working as self-determined as it should be, the situation might be very burdening for the person concerned. My aim was to create a respectful, dignifying, and intimacy preserving design as well as a general improvement of incontinence care products. Another important aspect was the improvement of the usability. The calf bandage is 3D-knitted, breathable and holds the urine bag at place – even during athletic activities. The design of the urine bag is adapted to the anatomy of a human leg.
