IQ Cath Intermittent Catheter
Thousands of people across the country have to perform Intermittent Self-Catheterisation in order to effectively empty their bladder.
The procedure should only be carried out if you have been assessed and taught by a qualified Healthcare Professional.
IQ Cath is the brand name for our Intermittent Catheter.
We provide a Hydrophilic version (lubricates on contact with water) that you can add water to or that has a sachet within its packaging, or we have a Gel version which contains a light, water-based Gel to lubricate the catheter.
The IQ Cath has a spherical tip, a soft zone and a flexible zone that makes performing ISC a lot easier in many cases.
Due to its design the IQ Cath is able to follow the course of the urethra, pass through the sphincters and the prostate without undue pressure and without trauma.ORDER A SAMPLE
IQ Cath Features and benefits
Urethral strictures and false pockets
One of the complications associated with intermittent catheters and their use can be the development of urethral strictures and false passages in men.
Men may also have urethral strictures for other reasons and need to self-catheterise in order to ensure that the stricture is dilated to enable the normal passing of urine.
Many of our customers tell us that they find the IQCath easy to insert and with its unique features, it passes through a stricture or an enlarged prostate with ease.
