At 180 Medical, we love to be one of the first to let you know about the latest news and product launches. The Hollister Infyna Chic Hydrophilic Catheter is a new female length catheter, now available at 180 Medical. We’re ready to tell you about its fresh look and convenient features.
Since Hollister began in 1921, the company has strived to provide high-quality products that can help positively impact the quality of life of its users. Their newest product, the Hollister Infyna Chic Hydrophilic Catheter for Women, is designed to be easy to carry, use, and store.
In 2022, Hollister made some key updates to the Hollister Infyna Chic Catheter, which includes a clear PVC-free tube for better visualization, a longer female length catheter tube for confident drainage, and a more lubricious coating.
Hollister Infyna Chic Hydrophilic Catheter Features
One of the first things you may notice about this new touch-free catheter is its chic, discreet packaging. The pocket-sized carrying case is easy to open and close with just one hand. Plus, the case is recyclable, which means less plastic waste and a reduced carbon footprint.
Inside the case, the 5.5 inch female length hydrophilic catheter is ready to use due to being pre-hydrated in its own water solution. You don’t have to worry about carrying additional lubricant packets or activating its lubricated coating. It’s ready to go when you are.
Additionally, it will not leak when the case is closed. However, if you spill it while the container is open, the liquid should not stain common fabrics like denim or polyester.

Self-Catheterization Instructions for Women Using the Hollister Infyna Chic Catheter
Do you want more information about how to use Hollister Infyna Chic Catheters? 180 Medical provides step-by-step catheterization instructions on our website for men, women, and children at howtocath.com.
Here are some helpful cathing instructions from Hollister for learning how to cath with Infyna Chic catheters.
- First, wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Assume the position most comfortable for you to self-cath, such as sitting or standing near a toilet. If your doctor advises using antiseptic wipes, use one hand to spread your labia open while using the other hand to clean the area gently.
- Take out your Infyna Chic and flip the cap with your thumb, breaking the seal. Then remove it by its funnel, making sure not to touch the catheter tube.
- Next, insert the catheter into the urethra by parting the labia with your non-dominant hand and slowly inserting the catheter with your dominant hand until urine starts to flow.
- Slowly withdraw the catheter. If urine begins to flow again, pause and allow the remaining urine to flow. This helps ensure your bladder is empty.
- Afterward, you can put the catheter back inside its case for disposal or carrying. It should not leak when reclosed. Alternatively, you can throw the catheter away and save the case to recycle later.
- Lastly, be sure to wash your hands again after catheterization.
Remember, catheters are single-use devices. Washing and attempting to reuse this catheter may damage its unique hydrophilic coating or increase the risk of urinary tract infections.
