Part of our CliniSure range of incontinence products; designed with value in mind, providing high quality products at a low cost, to help the NHS care for more people. The CliniSure sheath is a soft silicone device that fits like a condom over the penis to manage incontinence whilst improving user confidence by ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. Available in three different styles and five different sizes, CliniSure urinary sheath comes with a handy sizing guide for healthcare professionals as well as users.
The CliniSure sheath is made of a soft silicone. It is designed to fit snuggly over the penis and can be worn by the user for up to 24 hours. It is held in place by skin friendly adhesive, providing peace of mind that it will stay in place, giving the wearer confidence whatever their lifestyle.
When correctly fitted, a CliniSure sheath can protect against urinary leaks better than pads. Simply connect the ridged connector on the tube of a drainage bag to the nozzle on the sheath. They’re universally compatible with all urine bag brands as well as our CliniSure range of drainage bags.
How to use CliniSure urinary sheaths
Begin by using the sizing guide provided to find the correct size. Five sizes and three styles are provided to ensure the correct fit can be found; each size is colour-coded for ease of use.
Each urinary sheath is provided with a hair protector. This prevents pubic hair from becoming trapped beneath the adhesive seal.
Once in place, CliniSure sheaths can be worn for up to 24 hours. During this time, they should be connected to a urine drainage bag. They can be worn discreetly under clothing with the soft silicone allowing for natural movement without discomfort.
After use they can be removed by applying warm water or, if required, a medical adhesive remover to release the adhesive. They can then be disposed of in a regular waste bin. For more information see the FAQs.

Why do I need to use a urinary sheath?
Your healthcare professional may have recommended a urinary sheath to help with moderate/heavy incontinence. When fitted properly, urinary sheaths can protect against urine leakage better than pads. Sheaths can be useful whatever your lifestyle, but they can be particularly helpful if you want to go out or participate in activities where you will not have access to a toilet.
Will the urinary sheath be visible under clothing?
Urinary sheaths and drainage bags are designed to be discreet when worn under clothing, so no one will know you are wearing them. For added security, you may choose to use a tube securement device such as CliniFix®, to secure the drainage bag close to your leg.
How do I choose the right size sheath?
Use the measuring guide found in the CliniSure sheath box and measure your penis at the widest point. Please see the user guide instructions for more information.
How often should I change my sheath?
Your sheath should be changed every 24 hours. Use warm water and plain, non-moisturising soap to remove the sheath. If the sheath does not come off easily by soaking in warm water, use a non-sting medical adhesive such as CliniPeel®.
How should I dispose of my sheath?
The used sheath can be disposed of in a normal waste bin, they must not be flushed down a toilet. Although the sheath itself is not recyclable, all the urinary sheath packaging is recyclable, including the individual sheath pouch, the box and the measuring guide.
Can I reuse a sheath?
No, a sheath is single use only and you should throw away after each use and apply a new one.
What do I do if my sheath appears to be leaking?
Check that the pubic hair has been trimmed back sufficiently and make sure to use the hair protector provided when applying the urinary sheath. If pubic hair is not trimmed sufficiently this can form a channel down which the urine can leak. Make sure the drainage bag is connected securely and is not leaking from the connection point, check there are no kinks in the tubing. Make sure you do not wear tight underwear or incontinence pads that may block the flow of urine.
How do I use the hair protector?
Simply slide the hair protector down your penis so that it covers any pubic hair. Once you have applied the urinary sheath, the hair protector can be removed by tearing the paper.
What do I do if my sheath is not sticking properly?
Ensure you have washed your penis with warm water and only use plain, non-moisturising soap, Make sure you dry thoroughly, leaving moisture on your skin may prevent the adhesive from sticking correctly. If required, you may also use a barrier wipe such as LBF.
How should I store my box of sheaths?
Store the box of CliniSure urinary sheaths in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Each sheath is individually wrapped, please keep the sheath in its packaging until you are ready to use it.
