Who we are and what we do

Who we are and what we do

Coloplast is a manufacturer of catheters for bladder emptying as well as other medical devices for personal use.

Listening and responding to people’s needs is what drives our work

Around 348 million people live with bladder issues worldwide. Coloplast are committed to help them with their personal and private healthcare needs by offering products, services, and information, which can be useful in their everyday lives. Listening and responding to people’s needs is what drives our work. The feedback that we get from you is used as input to the development and testing of new products and services.

Develop products with user’s needs in mind

We want to help people live an active and rewarding life, by developing products that are safe, functional, discrete and fit for individual needs and lifestyles.

Coloplast supports catheter users

Support for users of intermittent catheters

Our Coloplast Care team can work with you and your healthcare professional to offer you guidance on products that are available to you and that best fit your individual needs and lifestyle.

Support and education for healthcare professionals

We offer educational material and guidance to healthcare professionals to support their professional care. This includes helping patients to become self-reliant and manage the transition from hospital to home and providing ongoing support as they adjust to being back in their community.

Intimate healthcare needs and challenges can be difficult to share with others and some fear of going out in public is understandable. We want to break the silence and increase understanding to make it easier for people to talk about.

  • Coloplast history

    It all started in 1954…

    Nurse Elise Sørensen wanted to help her sister to a normal life following an ostomy surgery. She came up with a simple yet great solution – a homemade ostomy bag - which led to what we do today. Since then we have also expanded into continence and wound care. Watch the story about Coloplast.
