Support to users on catheters

We offer direct guidance to help people manage their condition including product samples enabling people to find the best possible products to suit their needs and lifestyle. Our Coloplast Charter team of advisers can be the extended hand when settling in with bladder issues.

Support and education for healthcare professionals

We offer educational material and guidance to doctors and nurses to support their professional care when it comes to helping patients to become self-reliant and manage the transition from hospital to home and setting them up for their life with managing bladder issues.

Life with a continence condition can sometimes feel very lonely and isolating. We want to help break the silence, increase understanding and make it easier for people to talk about their lives.


  • 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.
