The PureWick Female External Catheter is a soft and flexible external catheter for women that wicks urine away to keep the body dry and odor-free. It uses a low-pressure wall suction, that wicks urine away from the patient and into a designated collection canister. The Purewick is a new way for managing female urinary incontinence.
