The New Stuff


Cure Medical Attacks UTIs with New Catheter Packaging

Men who seek a discreet way to carry their catheters may also enjoy a lower risk of UTIs thanks to a new type of intermittent catheter packaging available from Cure Medical.  The popular Cure Medical ® Pocket Catheter is a flexible, U-shape intermittent catheter that enables men to conveniently and discretely carry the product in their pants pocket.

A variation of the Cure Medical Pocket Catheter for men is a 14-French catheter [item number M14UL] with lubricant enclosed inside the sterile packaging. The M14UL combines the 14 French Cure Pocket Catheter in the “U” shape with a 3-gram pack of lubricant.

By having the lubricant packed inside the Pocket Catheter’s sterile packaging, rather than added to the shipment box when a customer orders it, the lubricant is handled by fewer hands during processing and delivery.  This product improves upon the end user experience by making both sanitary intermittent catheterization and sterile intermittent catheterization easier and more convenient.

A variation of the Cure Medical Pocket Catheter for men is a 14-French catheter [item number M14UL] with lubricant enclosed inside the sterile packaging.

“We’ve heard from customers who are concerned that lubricant packs can become less sterile as they are handled in the shipping process,” Cure Medical CEO John Anderson says.  “By keeping this necessary element in self-cathing protected within our catheter packaging, we’re reducing the amount of contact the lubricant has with anyone or anything other than the catheter user.”

CURE240x240The added advantage of this bundled package is that men who use the Cure Medical Pocket Catheter won’t have to carry additional or separate lubrication supplies with them while on the go this summer.

“That’s a benefit that everyone can appreciate. Having everything you need in one package when you travel or use a public restroom is easier to manage while being more discreet,” Anderson adds.

The Cure Medical Pocket Catheter for men is a high quality intermittent catheter that always has fire polished eyelets, and is not made with DEHP, BPA or Natural Rubber Latex.

Cure Medical also donates 10% of their net profit to neurologic research in search for solutions for spinal cord injuries and central nervous system disorders. This is what truly sets Cure Medical apart from other catheter manufacturers.

Bob gives a lot of credit to his support system for his success in life after spinal cord injury.

Bob gives a lot of credit to his support system for his success in life after spinal cord injury.

Founded by quadriplegic Bob Yant in 2008, Cure Medical strives to improve lifestyle options for catheter users by putting their money where their mouth is.  Yant is a C4/C5 spinal cord injury survivor, whose injury was caused by a diving accident in Newport Beach, CA when he was 19 years old.

As Yant became a catheter user, he struggled due to the lack of comfort and ease of use with substandard catheters.He worked tirelessly to change the catheter realm not only for himself, but for the spinal cord injury community as well.

Yant has since strived to find ways to make catherization more efficient, more comfortable, and less stressful for catheter users through the products that are developed and offered by Cure Medical. Yant is also on the board of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and an active fundraiser for the organization.
