Rochester Medical (ROCM) Introduces Spirit™ Hydrocolloid Adhesive Sheath


10/1/2012 11:21:24 AM

STEWARTVILLE, Minn., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rochester Medical Corporation (NASDAQ:ROCM), the world's leading developer and manufacturer of silicone catheters for continence care, today announced its next generation of male external catheters with the launch of the Spirit Hydrocolloid Adhesive Sheath.

Spirit is the first and only male external catheter to combine the moisture-wicking properties of a hydrocolloid adhesive with the superior breathability of silicone.

Sarah Grinde, Vice President Development and Research, stated, "The benefits of hydrocolloids are well known in the clinical community. Rochester Medical's patent-pending hydrocolloid sheath is specially designed to wick away moisture which is then passed through the breathable silicone surface maximizing comfort and wear-time. These combined properties are extremely important for people who use these devices on a regular basis."

Additional product and ordering information is available by contacting Rochester Medical at 1-800-243-3315 or info@rocm.com.

For more than two decades, Rochester Medical Corporation has been developing, manufacturing, and marketing latex-free and phthalate-free disposable medical devices and catheters for urological and continence care applications. Made in the USA, with an environmentally conscious design, the all-silicone Spirit Hydrocolloid Adhesive Sheath is yet another example of the Company's commitment to providing innovative solutions to address the needs of patients, caregivers, and clinicians.
