What is a catheter?A catheter is a thin tube made from medical-grade materials, used as support in the drainage of fluid from the body. Our catheter supplies for men and women come in a variety of sizes to suit different necessities and lifestyles such as travel catheter, pre-lubricated catheter and compact catheter.
Catheters come in a range of styles depending on your needs, Intermittent (or “in-and-out”) catheters are disposable, single-use devices that do not remain in the body after emptying.
Foley catheters also called “indwelling” catheters remain in the body for a set period of time and are attached to drainage tubing and collecting bags.
Male external catheters sometimes referred to as “condom” catheters fit over a man’s genitalia and attach to a drainage tube and collecting bag. All catheter supplies come in a variety of lengths, “French” sizes, and styles.
