We have developed the KIC-System for patients that are either incontinent between catheterisation intervals or that achieve continence only with medication, which they cannot or will not tolerate because of side effects. These people would have to put on a new sheath several times a day after each catheterisation.
In the KIC-System, we have a removable connector instead of a fixed tube to connect the leg bag. This connector can be removed from the urinary sheath and, using the special sheath expander tool, the sheath can then be pulled over the penis shaft so that the penis tip is left free for disinfecting and catheterisation. Afterwards, the urinary sheath can be restored to its original position and connected to the existing drainage system. This procedure can be repeated any number of times.
The KIC System consits of the following components:
KIC Sheath Expander
To widen the opening of KIC sheath. Made of sturdy plastic material that is easy to clean.
KIC Sheathâ€“ Original
No connecting tube, with a punched hole to position the KIC connector. Apart from this, these sheaths have the same features as the latex sheath "Original". Fixation with skin adhesive or double-sided adhesive tapes. 1 protective cloth (matching the size of the sheath) is enclosed.
KIC Sheath â€“ Extra Thin
No connecting tube, with a punched hole to attach the KIC connector, the tip of the sheath is reinforced. Apart from this, these sheaths have the same features as the latex sheaths "Extra thin". Fixation with skin adhesive or double-sided adhesive tapes. 1 protective cloth (matching the size of the sheath) is enclosed.
KIC Connector and Connecting Tube
To connect KIC-Sheaths with Urine Collection Bags. Connector is made of plastic, Tube made of latex.
How it works
Hold the sheath between thumb and index finger, pull the open end of the sheath over the disc of the connecting piece, and ensure that the connecting piece is â€žcorrectly alignedâ€œ.
Push on the outer sleeve of connecting piece and screw into place.
Pull the sheath and the connecting piece to check connection. Then, apply sheath as usual.
To catheterise, remove the black plastic connector from the sheath.
Insert the closed prongs of the sheath expander into the hole on the end of the sheath.
Expand the hole at the end of the sheath by closing the scissor handles.
Move the sheath expander and sheath towards the body over the tip of the penis.
Clean area of any residue left over from catheterisation and bring the sheath expander and sheath back over the tip of the penis, away from the body.
Close the sheath expander by opening the scissor handles and remove the sheath expander.
Re-connect the sheath to the black plastic connector and ensure by pulling that the connection is secure.
