LoFric® is the worlds first hydrophilic intermittent catheter. The coating is activated by soaking the catheter in water, which forms a slippery layer. It’s specially designed for comfort by maintaining the slippery layer throughout the entire catheterization. LoFric is the only hydrophilic catheter proven in long-term clinical studies to reduce the risk of UTIs and other complications when compared to conventional catheters. Latex- Free.
LoFric® is our original low-friction catheter. It is an all-purpose catheter that is ideal for both busy hospitals and for patient use at home. LoFric requires clean water for activation of the Urotonic™ Surface Technology low-friction coating on the tubing. Available in sizes for men, women and children.
