Below is a list of medical devices to help in the process of self catheterisation (ISC). Some of the devices such as the leg dividers or spreaders help women to locate their urethral opening, the Cath Hand will help the user handle a catheter as well as pick up other objects. The p.hold device has been used by men that have poor dexterity, or who perhaps have retraction difficulties, to direct the stream of urine.
For ladies to help part the labia to allow catheterisation (indwelling or intermittent)
p.hold - Penis holder or stretcher
For men - prevents penile retraction to help with ISC, directing the flow of urine or
fitting urinary sheaths (Available on UK prescription)
Cath-Hand Helps people with severe manual dexterity pick up and handle objects that would
without aid be very difficult. Primarily designed to grip a catheter. Gentle 'cocking'
of the wrist is all that is required to grip an object such as a ISC catheter.
