Hydrophilic Urinary Catheters LOFRIC for Clean Intermittent Catheterisation
LoFric® catheters are hydrophilic. This means that the external surface of the catheter is water binding. The result is a highly liquid and smooth surface, essentially without friction.
LoFric® is the only catheter in the world with the special Urotonictm technology on its surface – a unique manufacturing technology that makes catheterization easier to use. The secret behind this technology is a chemical process that makes the surface layer isotonic to urine. This means that the salt content on the surface is the same as in the urine. The outer layer consists of a probe Lofric polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) and sodium chloride (NaCl). This combination reduces by 90 – 95% the friction between the urethra and the catheter during insertion. The friction remains low even when the catheter is removed from the urethra compared with other catheters.
All types of catheter LoFric® are manufactured with Urotonictm technology and there are several types for different needs.
