We love letting our customers know about the wide variety of supplies we carry to suit everyone’s unique needs. Today, we’re sharing some info about Coloplast’s popular SpeediCath Compact Catheter, which is now available for both women and men!

What to Know About SpeediCath Compact Catheters

Coloplast Female Speedicath Set Both the Coloplast SpeediCath Compact Catheter and the Compact Set for men and women continue to be popular among catheter users. This is for quite a few reasons.

First, the hydrophilic SpeediCath Compact is pre-lubricated and ready to use as soon as you open its discreet packaging.

Next, its size makes the Speedicath Compact Catheter high in demand. In fact, even the Compact Catheter for Men boasts a discreet size that makes it perfect to pocket and store away. Typically, a male length urethra requires a catheter that is at least 16 inches long to be able to reach the bladder. With the SpeediCath Compact Catheter’s unique telescoping catheter tube shaft, it’s less than half the size of a standard male length catheter.

The SpeediCath Compact for Women is also designed for optimal discretion. In fact, it’s about the size of a tube of lipstick or mascara and it can be easily stored in makeup bags or pockets to keep your need for cathing discreet and easy.

Both of these reasons, including size and its pre-hydrated lubrication coating, make the Coloplast SpeediCath Compact a perfect travel catheter. However, it’s also great for use at home, at work, or anywhere you normally use the restroom in privacy.

In addition, Coloplast’s SpeediCath Compact Catheters are designed to give you a catheterization experience that’s both comfortable and clean. From insertion to withdrawal, the process is completely “no-touch.” In other words, you’ll never have to touch your fingers or hands directly on the catheter tube, which may reduce the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Here are a few more features you’ll want to know about the SpeediCath Compact, both for men and women.
