Apogee Essentials Intermittent Catheters: Quality at an Affordable Price
Developed based on feedback from healthcare professionals and consumers who are facing declining reimbursement rates, Hollister Incorporated has developed the Apogee EssentialsTM line of intermittent catheters. The Apogee Essentials line offers quality at a more affordable price.
The Apogee ICTM intermittent catheter is a non-lubricated catheter for those who prefer gel lubrication and offers smooth eyelets to help with more comfortable insertion and removal. The enhanced grip in the flexible funnel provides easier handling and the guide notch helps to indicate the coudé tip position.
The Apogee HCTM hydrophilic intermittent catheter offers the same smooth eyelets and flexible funnel, and is for those who prefer a hydrophilic coating. The hydrophilic coating is activated by a simple use burstable sterile water pack that creates a smooth and slippery catheter. The sliding sleeve provides more control during the catheterization process and helps to avoid touching the catheter.
Both the Apogee IC and Apogee HC intermittent catheters are available in a wide range of French sizes and lengths and both straight tip and coudé tip options are available.
The Apogee Essentials line is supported by simple to understand education on how to use the products. Male and female illustrated guides for use and instructional videos are available on hollisterpeoplefirst.com/products. This website also includes health, wellness and lifestyle education relating to intermittent catheterization.
All of the people featured on hollisterpeoplefirst.com are actual Hollister product users.
