Newport Beach, CA, August 12, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Cure Medical is proud to introduce their new M14XL Intermittent Catheter for people who are seeking an option for self-catheterization that helps reduce the stress and strain of multiple transfers.
The Cure Medical M14XL Intermittent Catheter is the longest catheter available on the market today, as it is a 25-inch long, 14FR catheter. Most standard intermittent catheters available today are 16 inches long or shorter.
The development of the M14XL catheter was influenced by voice of customer received during a Spina Bifida event. “We were attending the Spina Bifida Association’s National Conference two years ago as exhibitors, meeting and talking with attendees who have spina bifida, many of which use wheelchairs and intermittent catheters,” Cure Medical CEO John Anderson explains.
During the event, many attendees complained about the shoulder strain incurred during transfers for the self-catheterization process. Cure Medical took this feedback to heart, creating an inexpensive, intermittent catheter that was longer than average to help people who have experienced shoulder strain from repeated transfers throughout the day. [Most intermittent catheter users are advised by their doctors to self-catheterize 4 to 6 times per day.]
The M14XL intermittent catheter answers these concerns while also addressing other health and comfort factors with the following features:
· Size: 14 French
· 25-inch long catheter, no extension tubing is needed
· Catheter comes with gripper sleeve
· Fire-polished eyelets
· Packaged discreetly in a pocket-sized wrapper
· Lubricant included inside the packaging to reduce sterility issues
· DEHP- and BPA- chemical free
“Cure Medical is thrilled that our customers helped us make a product that meets their needs,” Anderson says. “I am really excited that people will now have a choice to have a much longer 25-inch catheter, complete with lube and a sleeve. Someday I feel people will ask why this wasn’t available a long time before now.”
The Cure Medical M14XL intermittent catheter is available now from Cure Medical and its authorized dealers. For more information, or to request a sample, please visit http://www.curemedical.com.
