The unique coating and polished eyelets

SpeediCath has a unique and patented hydrophilic coating. 

 

Key benefits

The advanced hydrophilic coating consists of three elements:

1) Base coating: The base coating ensures the coating remains uniform
and evenly distributed during insertion and removal and prevents the top coating from rubbing off.

2) Top coating: The uniform top coating provides the optimal level of water absorption, making the surface extremely smooth and minimising friction.

3) Saline solution: SpeediCath is contained in a saline solution, ensuring the coating is always hydrated optimally and making them instantly ready to use.

SpeediCath also has polished eyelets to create smoother edges between eyelet and catheter surface, designed to minimise friction and risk of urethral trauma. Through a process developed specifically for SpeediCath, the edge of every eyelet is polished to create a soft and perfect transition between them and the catheter surface, ensuring maximum comfort when inserting and withdrawing the catheter.

The first instantly ready to use catheter

SpeediCath was the first instantly ready to use catheter to be introduced to the market almost 15 years ago. Since then it has been setting the standard for self catheterisation. The unique and patented hydrophilic coating ensures the catheter is ready to be used right out the packaging without adding water or lubrication.

The coating also covers the polished eyelets, ensuring a smooth catheter surface which minimises the risk of urethral damage.

The hydrophilic coating and the polished coated eyelets are on all SpeediCath catheters.
