Hollister Introduces New Apogee IC™ Intermittent Catheter
Hollister Incorporated has introduced the Apogee IC intermittent catheter, the first product in the new Apogee Essentials line of intermittent catheters. The Apogee Essentials line, including Apogee IC™ catheters, combines the recognized quality from Hollister and the comfort expected from Apogee catheters – at a new lower price.
Developed based on feedback from both healthcare providers and patients who are facing declining reimbursement rates, the Apogee IC catheter is the first product in a full line of more affordably priced continence care products by Hollister.
The Apogee family of intermittent catheters features smooth eyelets that are designed to aid comfortable insertion and removal. Non-lubricated and latex-free, Apogee intermittent catheters help you catheterize easily.
“Hollister Continence Care is fully committed to providing products, services and support to help healthcare professionals provide personalized patient care,” said Sal Mancini, Vice President of Clinical Services. “These additions to our line of quality products and services enable us to provide more comprehensive support to both healthcare professionals and the patients they serve every day.”
By offering the same trusted quality from Hollister that patients know along with the same Apogee catheter comfort that they expect, Hollister hopes to continue helping healthcare professionals and patients alike with products that empower a better quality of life.
The new Apogee IC intermittent catheters build upon the existing Hollister Continence Care portfolio of intermittent catheter products and services, which includes the Advance Plus™ touch free intermittent catheter system and their Secure Start™ support services program.
