User-friendly and safe in a smart package
LoFric Origo our latest catheter for men. Safe catheterisation in a clever package.
Tailor-made for women’s needs
LoFric Sense is small and discreet, yet still long enough for complete bladder emptying.
To minimize risk of microtrauma during daily catheterizations, the surface is of outmost importance.
The health and well-being of our users is always our priority. That is why all LoFric catheters have the unique Urotonic™ Surface Technology coating. It has a salt and solutes concentration similar to urine. This makes the catheter’s surface layer in balance with the body (i.e. isotonic to urine).
As a result, the lubricated catheter surface maintains smooth at both insertion and withdrawal, minimizing the risks of urethral trauma, bleeding and strictures.
All LoFric products are developed in close cooperation with users of intermittent catheters and healthcare professionals. The objective is always to identify new user needs and find out where there is room for improvement.
Not all hydrophilic catheters are the same, there can be significant differences in quality and performance. But all LoFric catheters have the patented Urotonic™ Surface Technology, are sterile and for single-use. It’s a hygienic choice that minimizes the risk of developing urinary tract infections.
Wellspect is a research driven company and scientific evidence is central to the development of our products. All products developed by Wellspect undergo a process in which performance and safety are carefully evaluated. As self-catheterization often is a lifelong therapy, catheters have to be suitable for long-term use.
LoFric catheters have been tested and documented for almost 40 years, longer than any other hydrophilic catheter available.
LoFric catheters have a distinct grip that helps the user to hold the catheter, without touching the catheter tube. It gives the user more control and makes it easy to insert the catheter into the urethra. Since it helps the user avoid touching the catheter tube, the procedure is more hygienic, reducing the risk for bacteria getting on the catheter tube.
When self-catheterizing 4-5 times a day it’s crucial that the experience is as hassle-free as possible. Easy handling and easy disposal are key and that’s why LoFric's hydrophilic catheters have many smart functions.
Every LoFric package is also designed with discretion in mind. If a LoFric package slips out of a person’s handbag or pocket, it’s not obvious that it’s a catheter.
LoFric offers a wide variety of supporting material for both teaching and learning how to self-catheterize – for everyone involved. When a user can lead a more balanced life thanks to easy and safe intermittent catheterization, there is a better chance of adherence to the therapy.
