Spirit is an external catheter from Rochester. Spirit catheters use the same hydrocolloid adhesives found in wound care to provide maximum adhesion. The moisture wicking properties of the hydrocolloid adhesives help absorb moisture from the skin. Rochester Spirits are 100% silicone catheters. The silicone conforms to the contours of the body and allows for superior breathability. These self-adhesive catheters are available in three styles and are latex free. Spirit catheters are similar to Freedom catheter.
The Spirit Catheter comes in three sizes: ultra-flex, pop-on and wideband. The Pop-On catheter is the first and only self-adhering male sheath. It has maximum adhesive space to combine the moisture-wicking properties of a hydrocolloid adhesive. The Pop-On silicone catheter has the same breathability of silicone. This type of catheter is ideal for men who prefer a shorter sheath or have a retracted penis. The Pop-On catheter can be used for pediatric patients. The Wideband catheter has 70% more adhesive area than traditional external catheters. This reduces the risk of premature catheter detachment.
Rochester also manufactures the Magic 3 catheter. This intermittent catheter is made with Rochester's M3 technology. It is a unique combination of three all-silicone layers that are gentle on sensitive skin. The Magic 3 catheter creates optimal handling and helps ease insertion. The silicone design eliminates the potential risks associated with latex and PVC catheters. The insertion sleeve makes for easy use and clean-up. Rochester has provided an innovative packaging that makes prep easy and helps maintain sterility.
