• I must say I was not expecting the package you sent. Thank you so much for sending the Ugo Urology sample box. The leaflets were extremely useful to me as a carer. This is the first experience we’ve had with catheters. Your products and user guides will allow us so much more freedom.

  • As a carer, one of the biggest obstacles I face is boosting my partner’s confidence. The products in the Ugo Urology range have taken so much pressure off. They actually work!

  • The Ugo Fix Sleeve leg bag holder is amazing. My partner used the Ugo Fix Sleeve this weekend on his upper leg. This gave him enough confidence to wear shorts – something he usually does all summer but was feeling he might not be able to do with a catheter and a leg bag. The Ugo Fix Sleeve has made this option available to him. We were out for the day and nobody noticed. This gave him the greatest confidence boost! It may seem like a simple thing, but to him it’s freedom.

  • “After years of having to forewarn patients of the stinging feeling to come, I am able to catheterise patients comfortably with OptiLube Active CHG Free. I have had no negative feedback at all from the patients I have used it with and no reports of infection either.”

  • “After using OptiLube Active CHG Free, I was very happy with the product. I didn’t experience any stinging.”

  • “I’m very impressed with the Ugo Fix Gentle (catheter clip). It’s just so comfortable and discreet, I don’t know it’s there.”

  • “Thank you for finally providing a gel without Chlorhexidine.”

  • The Ugo 2L Drainage Bags you sent us are excellent! No ‘faffing’ and all very straight forward with clear, easy to understand instruction booklets, very easy to use (even for large clumsy fingers) – and, even better, no accidents. Yaaay.

  • I’m particularly pleased with the Ugo Leg Bags with the short tubes because I’ll be able to position those higher up, perhaps on my thigh, so I can wear my sundresses (when we get some sun that is). The lever tap on the leg bags is much easier for my husband to be able to handle – especially having big hands and fingers. The lever tap stays closed too – that was another problem I’d encountered before with other bags.

  • I was starting to lose hope when I came across Optimum Medical and the Ugo Fix Gentle. Optimum Medical are really easy to approach and will help in anyway they can. If in doubt about what you need, they will advise you about what product will suit you best and are happy to send samples for you to try.

  • Anyone who suffers with eczema knows that adhesives cause sores and make the skin dry and itchy. The Ugo Fix Gentle secures the catheter in place without adhesive, is comfortable to wear and is really easy to remove after use. I would recommend the Ugo Fix Gentle for anyone who has a skin condition like eczema.

  • My mother-in-law (99 years old) has been using the Ugo Fix Gentle for the last 2 weeks. I removed the clip after 7 days on bath day, and was relieved to find it had left no mark on her skin. The big advantage of the Ugo Fix Gentle is that it holds the catheter tube in place, preventing any pulling or kinking of the tube, which would stop the flow of urine.

  • Ugo Fix Catheter Strap is a great product, giving added security to the catheter and leg bag. It’s easy to apply, comfortable, discreet and effectively holds the catheter in place with no movement.

    Kevin TaylorPatient - Glasgow, UK
  • The Ugo Fix Sleeve is the best I have come across! Other similar products I have used in the past are much more flimsy in comparison. The Ugo Fix Sleeve is very comfortable to wear, very supportive and holds the bag in place discreetly. It is even provided with it’s very own laundry bag which ensures I can work a system where I wash one, while wearing one. Great product!

    Kevin TaylorPatient - Glasgow, UK
  • The Ugo 2L Drainage Bags are very good. They have a large capacity for overnight drainage, there’s no kinking in the tubes and they’re easy to connect. They are very secure once connected and the non-return valve to prevent urine going back up the drainage tube is a very good idea. A lot of other products I have tried don’t have this built in which can result in accidents.

    Kevin TaylorPatient - Glasgow, UK
  • I really enjoyed learning about the new additions to the Ugo Urology range of products from my Optimum Medical Account Manager. The district nurses were very impressed with the patient user guide that is provided with the Ugo Leg Bags and Ugo 2L Drainage Bags. This gives them security and peace of mind, and it’s also very helpful for patients!

  • I use the Ugo Catheter Valve with my suprapubic catheter. It grips extremely well, and doesn’t slip like some other valves which I have tried.

  • I use OptiLube 5g sachets several times a day. I had cancer and my voice box was removed so I have to breath and voice through a hole in my neck called a stoma. I have a stoma stud which houses a filter to protect my lungs. The hole in my neck became very sore so I was unable to insert the stoma stud which as you can imagine was not ideal. I became very frustrated and down in the dumps. I was on the internet looking for something that could help me and found OptiLube. I thought this could be my saviour and how right I was. I immediately contacted Optimum Medical and they sent out a free sample of OptiLube sterile lubricating jelly. I can’t thank Optimum Medical enough – OptiLube has changed my life.

  • The Ugo Fix Catheter Strap made life more comfortable for my husband while he had a catheter. The previous straps he used cut into his leg whereas the Ugo Fix Catheter Strap was wider and longer, so we could easily cut to size, and we found the fastening efficient and secure. They washed well and dried quickly.

  • My wife has been using the Ugo Fix Gentle (catheter clip) for approximately two weeks. We have found that there is no skin damage which she was getting with other products. She loves the rotating clip feature – it ensures the leg bag is always in the right position when it’s attached to her leg or when she’s laying on the bed.

    Dave WickendenPatient - Kent, UK
  • Since using the OptiPure pre-filled syringes with 10% Glycerine, I have had my suprapubic catheter changed three times. Any evaporation could cause my catheter to come out, so my District Nurse was very impressed with the minimal evaporation from my catheter balloon after using OptiPure on every occasion. This is also very reassuring for me.

    Christine PPatient - London, UK
  • The Ugo Fix Catheter Strap and Ugo Fix Sleeve are far superior to anything my husband has previously used to secure his catheter and leg bag. I will certainly be speaking to our GP to request some more!

    Ann TemplemanPatient - Edinburgh, UK
  • My husband used the Ugo Fix Sleeve to support the weight of his leg bag in conjunction with the Ugo Fix Catheter Strap to further secure the leg bag tubing. This made his experience wearing a catheter much more comfortable and he didn’t experience pulling from the weight of the bag and was able to move around freely. Highly recommended!

  • My husband has a urethral stricture which was the result of an operation he had as a child. He self catheterises once a week usually as this keeps the stricture open. He previously didn’t use lubricant but found it difficult doing the procedure and kept getting water infections following. Since using OptiLube pre-filled syringes he finds it much easier and hasn’t had one water infection since.

    Jacqueline JacksonPatient - Rotherham, UK
  • As a Senior District Nurse, catheterisation is a daily patient procedure. OptiLube Active offers superb viscosity for catheter insertion and smooth lubrication for patient comfort both of which are of equally high priority.

  • Choosing the OptiLube range has been a great decision for my practice and patients. The gel is high quality and consistently performs extremely well on all of the many procedures it is required for.

    Dr Donna KerschnerYork, UK
  • Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust changed to Optilube sterile 5g sachets back in November 2010. The Clinicians like the small individual sachets. The gel has the right consistency and suits all our clinical needs. We are very happy with the product.

  • When I had my catheter fitted I started using Ugo Fix Sleeves to support my leg bag. I found the sleeve very supportive and secure – it’s made me feel far more comfortable wearing a catheter than just using leg bag straps.
