We like to keep you up to date on the latest catheter and ostomy products available on the market. If you're a woman who uses catheters, you may want to know more about the newest catheter option from B. Braun: the Actreen® Mini Cath Catheter Set just for females.
What to Know about the Actreen® Mini CatheterB. Braun understands that many female catheter-users prefer a product that's not only easy to use but offers privacy and discretion. That's exactly why they designed the Actreen® Mini Cath.
Simple to open and insert, the Actreen® Mini Cath and the closed system Mini Cath Set are both made to fit discreetly in a pocket or makeup bag. With a low profile and 3.5 inch catheter length, the female Mini Cath is similar in size to a lipstick compact, and the catheter itself is coated with hydrophilic lubricant for a gentle catheterization process from insertion to withdrawal.
An additional benefit of the Mini Cath is that its packaging features pre-cut notches and finger holes, which gives its user the ability to open the catheter package easily, even for those with limited dexterity.
