The CompactCath Advantage

Our catheters are designed for your everyday needs. CompactCath offers easy, discreet, and 100% ready-to-use catheterization at your fingertips – providing maximum privacy, hygiene, and ease of use.


As the catheter is pulled out, the pre-lubricated sheath slides along the catheter, lubricating the catheter surface with silicon oil for smoother and more comfortable insertion.


The plastic case and sheath work together to provide non-touch insertion, maximizing hygiene and control while minimizing any risk of infection. Polished eyelets are also in place for more comfortable insertion and withdrawal.


With CompactCath’s unique funnel mechanism, you have complete control of drainage, reducing the risk of spillage. When ready, release the funnel to aim and drain.


When done, coil the catheter back into the case by dialing it clockwise direction. Insert it back into the pouch and dispose of it hygienically.

Pull, Press, Push

1. Pull

Pull the case back using your dominant hand to extend the catheter by about 1-2 inches.

2. Press

Press down on the handle using your index finger. This acts as a brake and gives you more control during insertion.

3. Push

Release your grip of the sheath slightly and push the case forward to insert more of the catheter.
