Condom Catheter

A condom catheter, also known as an external catheter or male external urinary catheter, is used to manage urinary incontinence in men. It is a sheath-like device that fits over the penis and collects urine into a bag or drainage system without the need for insertion into the urethra, as with traditional internal catheters. It is designed to treat short-term male incontinence. Shaped like a condom that easily rolls over the penis, it is typically made of soft, flexible materials, such as latex or silicone, and is designed to be comfortable and discreet. They are attached to a drainage bag that collects urine and can be worn throughout the day or night, depending on the individual's needs. External male catheters are typically recommended for men who have urinary incontinence due to various conditions, such as prostate problems, neurological disorders, or other medical conditions that affect urinary function.

At HPFY, we carry a variety of external catheters for men. In addition, you can choose from latex and non-latex condom catheters, depending on your needs.

How do you Size a Male External Catheter?

  • Make sure the penis is clean and dry: Before measuring, ensure that the penis is clean and dry to get an accurate measurement.
  • Place the stencil on the penis: Position the stencil over the penis with the opening of the stencil at the tip of the penis. The stencil should fit snugly around the shaft of the penis.
  • Choose the appropriate size: The stencil will typically have multiple size options labeled as mm. Select the size that best fits the circumference of the penis without being too tight or too loose.
  • Check for proper fit: After selecting the size, check that the stencil fits comfortably around the penis without causing any discomfort, gaps, or constriction. The condom catheter should fit securely without slipping off or causing skin irritation.
  • Trial and error: It may take some trial and error to find the right size using the stencil. Monitor the comfort and effectiveness of the condom catheter during use and make adjustments as needed.

Female External Catheter - PureWick Female External Catheter

The PureWick Urinary Catheter is an innovative non-invasive urine management continence aid designed for the female anatomy. The BD PureWick uses a low-pressure suction design to pull the urine into a container. Continuous use of adult diapers and pads makes the skin prone to damage due to constant exposure to urine. However, the Purewick female urinary catheter alternatively wicks the urine away and keeps the skin dry and soft. The PureWick female catheter gives women a new and simple way to manage urinary incontinence. Interestingly, it looks like a banana, hence the name banana catheter.

The average wear time is between 12 to 72 hours and should be re-evaluated periodically to ensure successful use.

An external condom catheter is a urinary catheter — a tube that allows the flow of urine — that users can wear outside the penis instead of inside the urethra, a natural tube inside the penis. It collects urine for people who have difficulty holding their urine or cannot walk to the bathroom.

Frequently asked questions

External catheter systems also called condom catheters are used by men. This catheter fits over the penis and connects to a drainage bag. They are safer to use than internal catheters because it does not require a tube to be placed in the bladder.

External catheters are made from either latex rubber, polyvinyl, or silicone and are attached on the shaft of the penis by a double-sided adhesive, latex inflatable cuff, jockey's type strap, or foam strap. They are then joined to urine drainage bags by a tube.

External catheters are used for 24 to 48 hours and both disposable and reusable condom catheters are available.
