Description
A piece of orthosis, about 15 x 2 cm in size, is rotated around its longitudinal axis and placed in a universal strap. On one end is a hole for the catheter (photo 4). The catheter is inserted through the hole (photo 1). Angling the wrist upwards prevents the catheter from sliding through the hole and it can be inserted into the penis (photo 2). Then the wrist is angled back, the catheter slides through the hole and the user can grip it farther out and insert it a bit more.
