What is Different About Bard Magic3 GO Female Catheters?
- Ergonomic Grip - The funnel end of the Magic3 GO is designed to be easy to hold and grip. When you are using a "clean cath" method, you don't want to touch the catheter shaft because that can contaminate the catheter. The Magic3 GO funnel is easy to hold because it is larger and includes an ergonomic area for easier handling and the funnel can still be connected to a urinary collection bag.
- Three Layer Silicone Technology - Magic3 GO is a female catheter that is made up of three layers of latex-free silicone. The first layer is made with comfort in mind, it is softer to help alleviate urethral trauma that can be associated with frequent catheter use. The middle layer is firmer to make actual insertion easier. The final inner layer is highly pliable so the entire catheter is easy to navigate the urethra and to easily drain the bladder. The three layer technology helps increase the over-all comfort of catheterization.
- Tapered Catheter Tip - What also increases comfort is the specially designed catheter tip. The tip is tapered and includes four drainage eyelets. Four. The tapered tip means it is more comfortable to insert and four eyelets means that the bladder is drained quickly. This catheter really is designed to make intermittent catheter use as convenient as possible.
What is CleanGlide Technology?
A regular run of the mill catheter is removed from the package and a separate sterile lubricant needs to be applied to the catheter shaft in order to be inserted. For some people this is a messy process that they would rather avoid, especially when they are using a public restroom. CleanGlide is a lubricious hydrogel that is self-hydrating, the catheter is maintained in a hydrated state that requires no action from the user. Now, what that really means is, you open your GO catheter and it is ready to use. It is always lubricated. No fumbling with tubes of lubricating jelly, no opening foil packs, no trying to burst sterile water sachets inside a sealed catheter package. Magic3 GO is meant to be used quickly and easily.
