Hey, guys! Do you have trouble inserting a catheter? Are you tired of long, bulky catheters in hard-to-open packaging? Then it’s time to talk to your doctor about trying Coloplast’s SpeediCath® Flex Coudé Pro. From day one, this product was designed to take the frustration out of self-catheterization for men who experience difficulties with insertion. After listening to customer feedback, Coloplast has redesigned the compact packaging with ease of use and environmental friendliness in mind.
Loop and Tug Packaging
Have you ever tried opening a bag of chips by grasping both sides of the package and pulling them apart? It’s not always easy, right? This is especially true for someone with limited hand dexterity. Sometimes, accessing your catheter supplies can feel just as frustrating. But now, you no longer have to worry. Thanks to two pull-rings, opening the new Speedicath® Flex Coudé Pro pouch is as simple as looping your fingers through and gently tugging in opposite directions. Not having to ask for help gives you even greater independence and the freedom to self-catheterize both at home and on the go.
A Win for the Planet
Lessening your environmental impact is another excellent reason to give the Speedicath® Flex Coudé Pro a go for your catheterization needs. Coloplast’s redesigned packaging is not only more user-friendly but it also no longer contains aluminum — a win for the planet! By removing aluminum from the packaging, they’ve eliminated the use of the equivalent of 170 soda cans per user each year. Now, you can self-catheterize with a clear conscience knowing you’ve taken a step toward decreasing your ecological footprint.
Ease of Use
Whether you’re new to self-catheterizing or it has become as routine as brushing your teeth, the Flex Coudé Pro was designed to make your life easier. The soft and flexible catheter is easy to handle, and the fixed, curved tip bends to follow the curves of the male urethra.
After opening the pouch, a protective dry-sleeve allows for touch-free hygienic cathing, minimizing the likelihood of transferring bacteria to the catheter. Insertion is as smooth as ever thanks to its flexible, soft tube and curved tip that help gently glide the catheter into place.
With the new packaging as well as the user-friendly and hygienic design of the product, can self-catheterization be any easier?
