Catheter fasteners are adhesive foam strips or adhesive-free fabric strips used to secure a male external catheter to the shaft of the penis. These are adjustable to ensure a comfortable and secure fit for easier catheter care at home. Fabric catheter strips can be machine washed and re-used, while adhesive strips are disposable after each use.
If you are allergic to latex, a Silicone Urinary Catheter is a great option that will not cause a reaction. This type of catheter is flexible and has a firm tip, making insertion easy. There are many urethral catheter sizes available to assure a comfortable fit.
One essential item to go along with a leg bag is a Leg Bag Strap or Holder. Both securely hold your urinary drainage bag to your thigh or calf, depending on your preference. Catheter bag straps attach to the top and bottom of any vinyl disposable leg bag, such as a Bard Leg Bag, to keep it in place. Alternatively, a urine bag holder is a pouch typically made of cotton that your leg bag slips into.
A Condom Style Catheter is a very simple type of catheter that men use to treat urinary incontenence. It makes male catheter insertion easy, as it simply rolls over the penis. Male incontenece condoms are different than other catheters such as indwelling catheters that must be insterted through the urethra.
