LoFric Catheters an Option at 180 Medical

If you have some experience with catheters, then you probably know that the brand and style of catheter can make a big difference in terms of comfort and results. You may have even tried a catheter that was just not right for you at all, leading to discomfort and irritation. And that can be a real problem when you need to use a catheter multiple times a day. You want the catheterization process to be as smooth and comfortable as possible.  

180 Medical carries a wide variety of intermittent catheters from the leading manufacturers and brands available on the market today. We also have a well-trained staff of friendly, knowledgeable customer specialists who can help you with your catheter choice, based on your insurance coverage and personal needs. One of the many brands we offer is Wellspect's line of hydrophilic intermittent catheters called LoFric, which is available in models for men, women, and children. Formerly known as AstraTech, Wellspect has been making high-quality, innovative medical devices for over 65 years now.

The LoFric line of catheters offer a low-friction method of inserting your catheter as smoothly as possible. They are known for being more comfortable, easier to insert, and they do not require additional lubricant. That’s right – an irritation-free, smooth cathing experience without application of separate lubricant.

This is possible because of the catheter’s hydrophilic coating, which is bonded to the surface of the catheter tube. Once this coating is activated by a small packet of sterile water that is included with the catheter, it becomes super-smooth and ready to insert. Because the hydrophilic coating is bonded to the catheter, you can experience a comfortable, well-lubricated catheterization process from insertion to removal.

This is just one recommendation out of many high-quality and respected brands. What is your preferred line of catheter? Talk to your doctor and call us at 180 Medical to find the catheter that's right for you!
