Superb Quality

These extremely comfortable long-term tubes have traditionally been hand-crafted for the past six decades. They are characterised by their softness and flexibility and are particularly economical to use thanks to their durability.

Lightweight, Soft and Flexible

TRACOE comfort tracheostomy tubes are made of clear polymer material (DEHP-free), which makes them both especially soft and very lightweight. They do not have to be removed for X-ray or cobalt therapy. A TRACOE comfort tube weighs only about one-third of a conventional silver tube of the same size. Because they are transparent, it is also very easy to ensure that they are perfectly clean.

As Comfortable as Possible

As the name suggests, TRACOE comfort tubes are designed to be as comfortable as possible for permanent wearers after tracheostomy or laryngectomy. Their dis­creet appear­ance is an added benefit. To en­sure optimum quality, they are still made by hand – an extra ef­fort that does a world of good to the patient.

Range of Models and Sizes

All tube types are available in many different sizes and designs. This variety facilitates the selection of the tube suitable for the respective anatomy of the patient. Also available as TRACOE comfort plus with a different bending angle and double fenstration. The tube length of comfort plus is between standard and extra-long.

Speaking Valves:

Speaking valves are available in Types 103 and 104.

  • Type 103 with a detachable valve.
  • Type 104 with a swivel valve which Can be moved sideways.

Both types are supplied with a spare inner cannula which can be used at night when the speech facility is not in use.


We recommend lubrication with water soluble lubricant, e.g. Glycerin BP. A couple of drops onto the inner cannula will allow smooth entry and easy removal of the inner cannula.

Extra inner cannuls:

We are able to supply extra inner cannulas, and speaking valves with all styles of TRACOE comfort tubes.
