180 Medical Product News: Hollister Essentials

Interested in keeping up with the latest catheters available on the market? 180 Medical is always ready to share the scoop on the newest products with you, and today, we’d like to introduce you to the recently released line from Hollister.

All About Hollister

Hollister, the manufacturer of Essentials catheters, is a global manufacturing company. Their goal is to improve lives with their top-quality products. Currently, they manufacture catheter products for over 90 countries.

Features of Hollister Essentials Catheters

Essentials intermittent catheters are 100% latex-free medical-grade PVC and come in an easy-open package. Each catheter features fire-polished eyelets to create a smoother insertion and help minimize any trauma or irritation during catheterization. Also, these offset eyelets help maximize the flow of urine.

In addition, these Hollister catheters also feature an enhanced grip on the flexible color-coded funnel for easy handling. The Essentials line products are available in straight tip with lengths of 6 inches (female length) and 16 inches (male length) and in coudé tip (available in male length only).

Take a look at the side by side comparison of the catheters here:

You can see an immediate difference in the funnel shape and size between the two. While the traditional line’s funnel is smooth, the Essentials catheter funnel is more flexible and features an enhanced grip for easier handling.

The Essentials coudé catheter’s funnel also features a guide notch to indicate the coudé tip’s position during insertion.
