Choosing the right medical products is almost universally a daunting task for both patients and their caregivers. With such a wide variety of choice, and the potential for highly varied quality and features, it is imperative that patients be educated and make an informed decision on what they will use. Urological products are no different, with a wealth of brands and types of catheters available to suit a patient’s particular needs. In choosing the right catheter for you or your loved ones, one brand in particular stands apart as one of the industry leaders in patient outcomes and product quality, and that is Coloplast catheters.
Coloplast is among the largest catheter manufacturers not only in the US, but in Europe as well. They were one of the pioneering creators of hydrophilic catheters. Hydrophilic catheters are pre-coated in a lubricant which enables easy insertion and sterility of catheterization. While this newer technology is inherently slightly more expensive, it also decreases the likelihood of urethral damage and increases patient comfort, which can lead to increased adherence to a program of intermittent catheterization. Coloplast’s SpeediCath series of products is among the highest quality hydrophilic catheters on the market, with sizes ranging from female and pediatric, to male sizes in a variety of French sizes.
One of the most popular products that Coloplast offers is their compact, discrete catheters for both males and females. While many catheters come in a traditional plastic sheath, and can be up to 16” long, Coloplast compact discrete sets are constructed to look more like ink pens, mascara, lipstick, or other innocuous items. For patients that travel often and must catheterize in public or workplace restrooms, these compact discrete sets can be a source of both convenience and dignity. Rather than women needing to fold over a long catheter in a larger purse, or men worrying about catheters sticking out of their pocket, these convenient Coloplast catheters can be easily concealed in almost any location. The female compact Speedicath, for example, is smaller than a tube of lipstick, yet with a telescoping 6” catheter included, can be easily used by most female patients. Likewise, the male compact Speedicath is the same size as a ballpoint pen, enabling men to conceal it in their shirt or pants pocket with no issues. Finally, the slightly larger Speedicath compact set includes a closed system urine collection bag, allowing for easy, sterile collection in any setting, decreasing the likelihood of UTI’s and other complications.
Studies show that SpeediCath is preferred by users for its convenience, speed and discretion. SpeediCath is the proven and reliable catheter that has set the standard for catheterization for almost 15 years. These Coloplast catheters are available in a variety of lengths and sizes to suit women, men and children.
