Coloplast has announced the launch of its SpeediCath Flex Set catheter for people having bladder and urinary problems in the US.

The Danish medical device company is offering the SpeediCath Flex Set as a catheter and bag combination, commonly known as a Closed System.

The new catheter features a no-touch dry sleeve and an omnidirectional tip. The tip of the catheter can be bent to follow the curves of the urethra.

All SpeediCath catheters are said to have Triple Action Coating Technology, which is intended to lower the risk of urethral damage as well as urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Coloplast said that the all-in-one solution helps patients catheterise at home or away, and aid them to manage their condition and sustain a healthy lifestyle.

Coloplast North America chronic care senior vice president Manu Varma said: “With SpeediCath Flex Set, we are introducing an important solution for people living with SCI and many other health conditions.

“We are confident that its new innovative design will make a big difference to our users, improving their catheterisation routine in many ways.”

Available in standard and pocket sizes, the catheter is said to have a soft-squeeze grip that guides the tip into the urethra safely without making contract.

Coloplast claimed that SpeediCath Flex is reclosable and features non-medical, practical packaging for safe hygiene handling and disposal.

The firm also provides additional support via its Coloplast Care programme, which offers product and lifestyle advice, inspiration, and education resources for people having bladder issues.

Earlier this year, the company completed the acquisition of Swedish company Atos Medical from PAI Partners for €2.15bn.
