Urinary condoms for separate fixation
Urinary condoms for separate fixation are made of synthetic material or of latex. On adhesion, they allow individual handling: The user himself can determine the quantity of adhesive to be used, the length of the adhesive zone and the capacity of the buffer zone.
For fixation, we offer various types of skin adhesives and double-sided adhesive tapes. Should you need further information, please contact your local continence adviser.
Slip the protective cloth over the penis to protect the pubic hair. The opening in the protective cloth has a diameter that is by 1mm smaller than that of the corresponding sheath. First one should unroll 4â€“6 cm of the sheath (to provide a buffer zone or reservoir for spontaneous urine), then roll the sheath over the tip of the penis (glans) and hold it as shown in the diagram. If erection is not possible then pull the penis slightly taut.
With the other hand apply a ring of adhesive. Use as little adhesive as possible but as much as necessary and apply it from the middle of the penis shaft versus the upper end, so that you have some space left that you can use in case of a minor injury. (Too much skin adhesive results in a thick layer, which hinders a solid contact between skin and rubber film. In this case the sheath may later slip a little and get stuck on itself).
Spread the skin adhesive evenly using the adequately shaped tube nozzle or the index finger (also possible with gloves). A thin surface of 2â€“3 cm is ample. Important: a complete gap-free continuous adhesive film must be produced. Do not let the adhesive dry too much. The solvent in the skin adhesive evaporates through spreading so that the formation of bubbles under the sheath is prevented.
Whilst one hand is rolling the sheath over the adhesive zone, the other one should still hold the penis taut. Press the sheath to the skin all around carefully. If necessary, rub out longitudinal folds and air bubbles (radial wrinkles are less dangerous). Check again after about 1 minute and press again if necessary.
The remaining rubber ring behind the adhesive surface may be cut open or cut or torn off completely when pressure sores are to be feared or the penis retracts strongly for instance when urinating. The cut should be made circular so that the sheath will not tear. Press the sheath firmly on the adhesive area whilst cutting or tearing off the sheath.
To prevent pubic hairs being trapped under the tape, we suggest you apply the protective cloth supplied with all our urinary sheaths. If an erection can be manipulated, tapes can then be applied making sure they do not cut into the penis shaft. Apply tapes to dry skin in a spiral overlapping fashion.
Unroll the urinary sheath 4â€“6 cm, apply and carefully roll over the tapes. Press lightly all around.
Press the tape with the hands for about 30 sec. so that the warmth of the fingers increases the adhesive strength.
