Title
(EN) CATHETER WITH AN OPENING/CLOSING MECHANISM
(FR) CATHETER A MECANISME D'OUVERTURE/FERMETURE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a catheter comprising a tubular part (1) having a proximal end and a distal end, at least one inlet opening (2) at the proximal end and at least one outlet opening (3) at the distal end, a closure (4) connected to the tubular part by a first hinge (5), where a part (6) of said closure extends beyond said first hinge (5), a radially projecting part (10), an operation handle (8) connected to the catheter by means of a second hinge (7) at the end of the closure extension (6) and a third hinge (9) at the radially projecting part (10), the total length of closure extension (6) and the operation handle (8) exceeding the rectilinear distance between the first (5) and the third hinges (9). The catheter according to the invention provides a simple construction which can be inserted and operated by one hand of the user and at a convenient site, not necessarily over a receptacle for the urine or other body fluids. The opening/closing mechanism further gives the user the feeling of controlling the urination.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un cathéter comportant une partie tubulaire (1) présentant: une extrémité proximale et une extrémité distale, au moins un orifice d'entrée (2) à l'extrémité proximale et un orifice de sortie (3) à l'extrémité distale, une fermeture (4) reliée à la partie tubulaire par une première charnière (5), et dont une partie (6) s'étend au-delà de ladite première charnière (5), une partie saillant radialement (10), une poignée de commande (8) reliée au cathéter par une deuxième charnière (7) à l'extrémité de l'extension de fermeture (6), et une troisième charnière (9) placée sur la partie saillant radialement (10), la longueur totale de l'extension de fermeture (6) et de la poignée de commande (8) dépassant la distance linéaire entre la première charnière (5) et la troisième charnière (9). Le cathéter objet de l'invention est un matériel simple que l'utilisateur peut insérer et commander d'une seule main, et dans un endroit approprié, pas nécessairement au-dessus d'un récipient pour recueillir l'urine ou les autres fluides corporels. Le mécanisme d'ouverture/fermeture donne de plus à l'usager l'impression de contrôler ses mixions.
