"The size of the protective tip is a huge plus and the packaging is more discreet."— New VaPro catheter trial user

Easy-to-open and easy-to-empty collection bag for cleaner handling (applies to the VaPro Plus Pocket catheters only).



"The smaller tip is easier for me to handle when inserting the catheter into my urethra, and the tear line makes it much easier to open and empty the collection bag." — New VaPro catheter trial user

New design — same 100% No Touch Protection

The protective tip helps to shield the sterile catheter during insertion from bacteria located within the first 15 mm of the distal urethra, and helps to reduce the risk of carrying bacteria into the urinary tract.

The protective sleeve allows for the catheter to be gripped anywhere and provides a barrier to the catheter to help keep germs away.

We asked 100 VaPro catheter users what they thought of the design enhancements
