For decades, catheters have remained pretty much the same. Until now. We are proud of the innovation that empowers women to handle their everyday life in a whole new way. The new LoFric Elle is the world’s first catheter with an L-shaped handle.
Taking the catheter out of its slim, hard plastic shell, the container is connected to the catheter at a 90 degree angle becoming a handle. This L-shape forms a versatile tool that gives a whole new dimension to the meaning of control.

Thanks to the ergonomic handle, more women will be able to manage their own catheterization instead of getting help from a caregiver or partner. Taking control, rather than having the situation control you, is liberating, bringing back that feeling of dignity. And if assistance is still necessary, the handle ensures that there is distance between the user and a caregiver’s or partner’s hand during catheterization.
Dignity and Freedom
What does dignity really mean? And how does this relate to a woman who uses intermittent catheterization? We asked a group of nurses to discuss this topic.
