SpeediCath Complete is designed for users who are not able to empty their bladders, and who need a disposable catheter. The reason for bladder dysfunction may be spinal cord injuries or the disorder multiple sclerosis, a disorder that is often causing paralysis of the body and reduced mobility.
SpeediCath Complete has been developed for catheter users who want to live an active life and to take part in sports, travelling or outdoor activities where access to appropriate sanitary arrangements is limited.
SpeediCath Complete makes it possible to empty the bladder by means of a catheter independent of the sanitary arrangements.
The catheter is built into a tight-fitting collecting bag, which it is possible to keep after use and empty or discard when the circumstances permit.
SpeediCath Complete is provided with a unique design with a small "squeeze and let go" insertion plastic grip.
This design makes the catheter easier to control for persons with reduced mobility, and it is hygienic and safe since finger contact to the catheter can be completely avoided.
In this way the risk of infection of the urinary tract is reduced. Like the other coated SpeediCath catheters Speedicath Complete is delivered immersed in sterile salt water and is ready to use immediately after the opening of the packaging.
SpeediCath Complete is the only coated catheter in the world market with an integrated collection bag 100% ready to use.
Developed in co-operation with French users
The development of SpeediCath Complete has been made in a close dialogue with French doctors, nurses and users of the catheters. Particularly in France many catheter users prefer a catheter with an integrated collecting bag.
SpeediCath Complete has already been launched in France, and we expect to launch the product in Denmark in spring 2006. Before the launch in Denmark the product will be launched in several of Coloplast’s essential markets. Coloplast is the second largest supplier of coated catheters in Europe.
