The winning product, LoFric® Elle™, won in the category of "Product: Medicine/Health"iF Award winner 2020

Each year, the world’s oldest independent design organisation, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, organises the iF DESIGN AWARD. 

  • 7298 entries from 46 countries were submitted to the 78-member jury, an assembly of independent experts from all over the world
  • The jury were won over by LoFricElle, with its unique L-shaped handle providing a new way to catheterise that is easy to teach, learn and perform.

As well as impressing the panel of judges, LoFric Elle is already causing a stir with the clinicians who have seen it:

“Intermittent self-catheterisation is a crucial element in the management of bladder retention but it can be very daunting for a lot of patients and the barriers the patients face can limit their adherence.



LoFric Elle may help to minimise some of those barriers. It is hoped with the handle patients will find the handling much easier and will be able to get a better view when using a mirror. This should make teaching and learning ISC procedure easier for the clinician and the patient.”
