Incontinence Brand Spotlight: Rusch/Teleflex
It’s not easy to filter through all of the information out there on incontinence supplies. And any catheter user will tell you, it takes trial and error to find the right products. But we’re here to help.
Today we’re spotlighting Rusch/Teleflex, one of the world’s largest producers of catheters. Rusch has roots that date back to the 1800s, and was acquired by Teleflex in 1989.
We carry many of their incontinence products — from foley catheters to irrigation trays.
Rusch Gold Silicone Coated Latex Foley Catheter
This latex catheter comes in a wide variety of sizes. It has a 5cc balloon and two opposed eyes.
Rusch Teleflex 100% Silicone Foley Catheter
For non-latex users, this indwelling catheter is made up of all silicone. No need to worry about mix-ups — it’s color coded so you can be sure you’re using the right catheter.
Rusch MMG H2O Hydrophilic Closed System Intermittent Catheter
Hydrophilic coating makes it easy to insert this catheter. It was designed to reduce the likelihood of UTIs. With its unique introducer tip, the catheter bypasses the the most bacteria-laden part of the urethra.
Rusch MMG Closed System Intermittent Catheter
This catheter also has the introducer tip to protect from infection. Additionally, it comes with extra gel lubricant in the cap to help make insertion easier.
Rusch MMG Closed System Intermittent Catheter Kit
This kit contains everything you need to ensure a sterile cath routine. It includes gloves, an underpad, PVP swab sticks, and gauze.
Rusch Economy Drain Bag
Don’t let the term “economy” make you shy away from this product. This is Rusch’s standard drain bag, and they didn’t sacrifice quality in making it.
Rusch EasyTap Leg Bag
The Easy Tap leg bag secures with two cloth straps. It’s latex-free and comes with a flip valve, which makes it easy to empty.
Rusch Belly Bag
Leg bags are common, but they aren’t for everybody. The belly bag is for foley and suprapubic catheter users who prefer to wear their bags in the abdominal area.
Irrigation & Catheterization Trays
Rusch Irrigation Tray w/ Bulb Syringe
Everything you need for bladder or wound irrigation. It comes with a bulb syringe and drape to protect from spills.
