CathGrip® is the only truly universal catheter securement system. The device is made from our proprietary hydrocolloid that is hypoallergenic, latex free, and moves like a second skin with wear time of up to 7 days! Our skin-friendly adhesive helps prevent skin tearing and irritation unlike other acrylic based securement devices. Other products that may claim to be hydrocolloid are actually only partially hydrocolloid while CathGrip® is 100% hydrocolloid and therefore a much gentler application.
Unlike many other anchors that are secured with acrylic-based adhesives, the CathGrip® skin-friendly hydrocolloid adhesive helps prevent skin tearing and irritation. This anchor is available with a choice of one or two no-slip grips, each with a soft strap for extra driveline support.
VAD patients experiencing skin tearing, sensitivities to adhesives or inability to keep other anchors on the skin are finding CathGrip® to be an excellent alternative for adult or pediatric VAD driveline securement.
