Long term indwelling catheter

LINC Optitip Catheter - Catheter Tip
LINC Optitip Catheter - Catheter Tip

Small changes make big differences

The Optitip™ catheter has been designed with a balloon that is closer to the tip. This prevents damage to the bladder mucosa that can result from standard catheter tips which may suck against the bladder wall. An eyehole has been added below the balloon to drain residual urine.

Specialist Catheter Tip Designs Integral Balloon Technology 100% Medical Grade, Biocompatible Silicone Scientifically Validated Inflation Solution
Patients experience different catheter-related problems such as blockages, spasms and recurrent infection. Our unique catheter designs allow you to apply individualised patient care, choosing the right catheter tip to suit the patient. The LINC catheter balloon is integral to the wall of the catheter. This eliminates the pain and trauma associated with balloon cuffing upon removal which can occur with standard catheter balloons.2–4 Silicone catheters provide double the drainage compared to the equivalent sized latex catheters.3,5,6 This helps to prevent blockages and ensure excellent, continuous drainage. Silicone is also safe for all your patients.3,7


LINC catheters are supplied with a pre-filled syringe of 5% glycerine solution that is proven to reduce premature balloon deflation. This solution equalises the osmotic pressure between the balloon and urine and helps the catheter to stay put for the 12 weeks dwell time.3,8
