When introduced back in 1983, LoFric was the world’s first hydrophilic urinary catheter for intermittent catheterization. At the time, it was a revolution, as it replaced the need for less effective catheters and gel, and made catheterization safer, easier and more comfortable.
Now we are introducing a new revolution within catheterization – although this time directed towards women! The new LoFric Elle with its unique, L-shaped handle is in fact the world’s first catheter that has taken the differences in bodily shape between men and women into account and addresses the challenges particularly faced by women who catheterize.
Meetings with over 100 experienced health care professionals and users have gone into the product development process of this new innovation at Wellspect. Their highly valuable and appreciated input has helped us fulfill our development goal of “making a real difference” to users of LoFric Elle.
We know that to our female users, discretion is key, but also smart user-centric functionality and esthetically appealing design. In fact, we have been awarded two design awards for LoFric Elle: The “iF Design award 2020, discipline product” and also the RedDot award, within the category “product healthcare”. However most importantly at Wellspect, we never compromise with the health of our users.
LoFric Elle is the next generation in a long row of LoFric intermittent catheters with our patented Urotonic™ Surface Technology, offering all the benefits that come with the renown LoFric quality. Simply put, it’s a LoFric for women with an L-shaped handle for better comfort and independence.
With the LoFric Elle handle, catheterization becomes significantly easier to teach and, above all, to perform yourself. With LoFric Elle, having to lean on other people for catheterization becomes a thing of the past, as self-catheterization provides women with control, independence and the freedom to do what you want to do – when you want to do it.
Say hello to LoFric Elle!
