Libertyville, IL (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
Hollister Incorporated announces the launch of two new hydrophilic intermittent catheters, the VaPro Plus™ touch free hydrophilic intermittent catheter, and the Apogee HC™ hydrophilic intermittent catheter. These new catheters build upon the existing Hollister Continence Care portfolio of products and services, which include the Advance Plus™ and Advance Plus Pocket™ touch-free intermittent catheters and Secure Start™ services.
“We are excited to expand our intermittent catheter portfolio to include more hydrophilic options,” said Michael Gresavage, Vice President, North America, Hollister Incorporated. “VaPro Plus is the only pre-hydrated catheter with protective tip and sleeve and attached collection bag, while the Apogee HC is a simple-to-use hydrophilic catheter that provides additional control and smooth lubrication at an affordable price.”
The VaPro Plus intermittent catheter is an extension of the innovative VaPro catheter, launched in the U.S. earlier this year. VaPro hydrophilic intermittent catheters use pure catheter hydration technology to minimize the amount of water in the package while still providing a pre-hydrated catheter that is ready to use as soon as the package is opened. VaPro catheters are designed with smooth hydrophilic coating for easier insertion and withdrawal, and a protective tip and sleeve to help avoid contaminating the catheter during use.
Apogee HC hydrophilic intermittent catheter is the newest member of the Apogee Essentials™ line, which offers quality at an affordable price. The Apogee HC hydrophilic catheter is simple to use. It is designed to be well lubricated and offers added control with a sliding sleeve to help avoid touching the catheter.
“Hollister Continence Care is fully committed to providing products, services and educational resources to help healthcare professionals provide personalized patient care,” said Sal Mancini, Vice President Professional Relations and Clinical Education. “These additions to our line of products and services allow Hollister Incorporated to provide more options to both healthcare professionals and the patients they serve.”
