The Wide Band is a style of catheter with a silicone medical adhesive surface that is 70 percent larger to provide a more secure fit. These external catheters for males are three inches wide and come individually packaged for convenience. The breathable silicone material is latex free and does not require the use of additional adhesive because it is already self-adhering. The Wide Band catheter is made by Rochester Medical Group, which is now part of Bard Medical.
An External Urinary Catheter is a male incontinence condom that fits over the penis and connects to catheter tubing and a urine catheter bag.

Express Medical supply carries a reusable catheter as well as single-use catheters that can be worn for up to 24 hours.

Rochester Spirit catheters are self-adhesive external catheters for males that wick away moisture to protect the skin.
