I requested free samples of the Optitip® catheter from you and I received two to try. I had one fitted by my District Nurse today and would like to give you feedback. What a difference I didn’t feel the insertion or inflation and no after effects. My District Nurse was so impressed she asked to take the sleeve and information with her. She had recently attended a catheter training course but was unaware of the new range of catheters you offer. I will be reporting back to my local Health Board Anerin Bevan and request that the Optitip® is added to my prescription.
Small changes make big differences
The Optitip™ catheter has been designed with a balloon that is closer to the tip. This prevents damage to the bladder mucosa that can result from standard catheter tips which may suck against the bladder wall. An eyehole has been added below the balloon to drain residual urine.
