Intermittent catheters are intended for use by adults and paediatrics, male and female patients for draining urine from the bladder. Bard Care, a division of Bard, has designed a range of catheters. This range includes Magic3 and Magic3 GO, which are single-use hydrophilic coated intermittent catheters, as well as Spirit, a range of hydrocolloid male external catheters. Please note that the re-use of a single-use device may create the risk of urinary tract infection (UTI).
Magic3 with M3 technology is the first intermittent catheter made with three all-silicone layers. The Sure-Grip insertion sleeve firmly grasps the slippery surface and slides smoothly along the catheter, making it easier to manoeuvre. It provides more control at the tip of the catheter. The no-touch insertion technique allows the catheter to be held firmly without touching the surface. This minimises the risk of contamination while catheterising.
Magic3 GO is a ready-to-use silicone hydrophilic intermittent female catheter which is 15 cm in length with a self-hydrating coating that doesn’t require patient activation with water or lubricant prior to use. Magic3 Go also has the same unique three layers of silicone as the Magic3.
Spirit is the first and only self-adhering male sheath to combine the superior moisture-wicking properties of a hydrocolloid adhesive with the unmatched breathability of silicone to control the level of skin moisture. Less moisture means improved adherence to the skin.
Bard Care offers a range of accessories that will make it easier and more comfortable to use your catheter. Spirit offers a range of leg and bed nags designed to fit Bard Intermittent, Male External and Foley Catheters.
