Here at 180 Medical, we carry a wide variety of intermittent catheters from the leading manufacturers and brands on the market today. We also staff well-trained customer specialists who can help you with your catheter choice, based on your insurance coverage and personal needs. One of the many brands we carry is Bard, a trusted leader in the medical supplies industry, and one of their products that many choose is the Bard Touchless line of catheter products.
Bard is one of the most established medical device companies in the world, as they have been producing high-quality devices for over 100 years. One such quality product is their Touchless catheter kit line. A traditional intermittent catheter is a straight tube that you have to manually lubricate and then insert into your urethra to drain the bladder. The Bard Touchless Catheter Kit offers a more convenient method of self-catheterization, taking the mess and extra preparation of inserting a catheter.
The Touchless Catheter comes packaged, pre-lubricated, and ready to use, no manual handling of the catheter tube itself required. The insertion tip included helps the catheter itself bypass the first few millimeters of the urethra which is the area with the highest concentrations of bacteria. Thanks to the pre-lubrication, the catheter will slide in gently and easily with no actual hands-on contact with the tube, minimizing risk of infection. The kit also includes antiseptic wipes for cleaning the area before insertion and a urine collection bag.
This catheter, just like all products, may not be the best option for everyone across the board. But it is just one of our popular products that many people choose and love, as it presents an easier option for insertion with less prep as well as a more comfortable experience.
