Coloplast was a key sponsor that helped make Dreaming with Adventurous Wheels to Cuba possible. Coloplast is a well-known and trusted urology and continence care company that makes many products you’ve heard of before. In addition to catheters, they also sell several other important intimate healthcare products.
Coloplast started as an ostomy product manufacturer decades ago and was founded by a nurse, Elise Sorensen, who wanted to make her sister’s life easier following an ostomy surgery. Coloplast has since expanded to include urology and continence care, and wound and skin care. In 2006, Coloplast acquired Mentor and with it, the Self-Cath line of catheters.
Today, SpeediCath® catheters are Coloplast’s most innovative catheters available. Thanks to its unique hydrophilic coating, SpeediCath catheters are pre-lubricated and instantly ready to use, saving you time in the bathroom so you can get on with life. are available in a full range of options:
– Standard lengths: For men, women and pediatrics
– Compact options: Designed for discretion, available with and without an attached collection bag
– Coude-tip: For those who have difficulty inserting a straight catheter, often as a result of an enlarged prostate or strictures
