QuickChange Incontinence Wrap

The QuickChange incontinence wrap is new type of urine management system that combines the best aspects of a catheter (localized collection around the penis without urine touching the skin) with the best aspects of an absorbant pad (low cost, low skill, convenience).

It is designed to replace catheters in minimally ambulatory men in acute settings and to replace adult pads in care homes and home health situations.

About

The QuickChange incontinence wrap is a new type of urine management system that combines the best aspects of a catheter (localized collection around the penis without urine touching the skin) with the best aspects of an absorbant pad (low cost, low skill).

It is designed to replace catheters in minimally ambulatory men in hospitals and replace pads in care homes and home health.

Using QuickChanges is straightforward - it folds and wraps directly around a user’s penis with two simple folds. The clinical end result is that urine is absorbed immediately after voiding without, unlike briefs, urine ever touching the skin. Wraps are made of similar materials to adult briefs/absorbent pads: wraps hold about 800 ccs (225-500ccs dry to the touch).

A unique feature is that the wraps can be used with different types of conditions – standard genitalia, indwelling/retracted penises (condom catheters do not work in this patient population), and/or an enlarged scrotum (which pads/condom catheters can't support).

As an alternative to catheters, QuickChanges remove the potential for costly and life-threatening UTI’s. 

As an alternative to briefs, wraps:

  1. reduce instances of incontinence-associated dermatitis and pressure injuries
  2. function with patient situations such as enlarged scrotums and wounds that need to be kept dry
  3. are easy to manage and change, reducing the need to lift and roll patients
  4. reduce the need to use wipes and barrier creams
  5. reduce the time and effort needed to change a patient from 5-15 minutes down to just a few seconds
