Unlike any penile clamp, Uriclak® is long lasting.
Its duration will depend on the frequency of use and if the conditions of use of the instructions are respected. (From 3 to 6 months with daily use).
For a device with DAILY use has duration of several months is essential:
-Avoid contact with water, clean with cotton moistened alcohol
-The internal structure mustn't be forced. The device mustn't be opened more than necessary for placement.
Can I use Uriclak® if I have small penis?
Yes. You can use it without regulators. You will not need them because it requires that the device exerts maximum pressure.
Even if the pressure is not enough, we recommend decreasing the aperture of the device with breathable hypoallergenic
tape as shown in the following picture.
We also recommed reducing the aperture of the device by pressing on the sides as indicated by the arrows in the picture.
Can I use this penile clamp for male incontinence if I have micropenis?
Yes, in addition to the above, you can use elastic at the ends of the device surrounding the hip / waist.
Can this device be detected in airports scanners?
Several tests authorized in official buildings has been practiced. The result has been that Uriclak® can be detected depending on the regulation of the scanners.
If regulation of a scanner is normal, Uriclak will not be detected. However, if the adjustment is highly sensitive, Uriclak® will be detected. We therefore recommend,
especially at airports, the patient carry leaflet of instructions of Uriclak® .
Thus there will be no problem with security personnel as with other patients with prostheses, orthoses, pacemarkers etc.
