Bard Spirit Male External Catheters from IndeMedical.com feature Hydrocolloid adhesive that has been used effectively in wound care dressings. The integration of hydrocolloid with the adhesive allows the dressing to maintain adhesion while absorbing moisture away from the skin. Bard Medical’s proprietary hydrocolloid adhesive takes advantage of the excellent moisture-wicking properties of hydrocolloid which transports moisture to the breathable surface of the silicone sheath where it can evaporate. By preventing moisture buildup, the hydrocolloid adhesive sheath helps protect skin integrity.
The Spirit Sheath is the first and only self-adhering male sheath to combine the excellent moisture-wicking properties of a hydrocolloid adhesive with the exceptional breathability of silicone. This fusion gives users and caregivers greater confidence by helping to protect skin integrity, minimize skin maceration and maintain adhesion.
