The Balancing Act


Get Back to Living

Living with a condition or disease that requires catheterization is challenging enough - this innovative catheter can help.

Living with or watching a family member or loved one live with a condition or disease that requires catheterization is challenging enough. Living with it and dealing with discomfort and potential infection just makes it more difficult.

There is something that can help. Wellspect HealthCare is the manufacturer of LoFric® intermittent urinary catheters, the world’s most clinically documented catheter.

LoFric invented the hydrophilic catheter, which uses water for lubrication instead of gel. So how does this make a difference in comfort for long-term use?

  • LoFric catheters are the only catheters in the world with Urotonic™ Surface Technology, a hydrophilic surface coating containing the same concentration of salt as is found in the urethral tissues. This unique coating is not absorbed by the body tissues and instead stays in place so the catheter remains evenly lubricated during insertion and removal.
  • What this means is a reduction in friction on the urethral tissue and a reduction in abrasions and microtrauma. This reduces the risk of infection, as those abrasions can act as a breeding ground for bacteria, causing infections and other complications.
  • Wellspect HealthCare recently launched LoFric® Origo™, a revolutionary coudé tip catheter for men and LoFric® Sense™, a discreetly packaged catheter for women.
