SpeediCath is the instantly ready to use catheter, with a simple design for everyday cathing. No need to add water, lubrication or waiting for the coating to get activated. It does not get any faster or simpler than that.
SpeediCath is designed to address comfort and minimize risk of urethral damage. The unique hydrophilic coating and the polished eyelets ensures smooth catheterization both during insertion and withdrawal.
SpeediCath is both quick and easy to use. The ring-pull feature offers easy opening and the adhesive dot ensures that the catheter stays where it is placed.
Studies show that SpeediCath is preferred by users for its convenience, speed and discretion(1). SpeediCath is the proven and reliable catheter that has set the standard for catheterization for almost 15 years. It is available in a variety of lengths and sizes to suit women, men and children.

SpeediCath has a unique and patented hydrophilic coating.
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 minimizing 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 smooth edges between eyelet and catheter surface, designed to minimize 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, to address comfort when inserting and withdrawing the catheter.
SpeediCath is convenient and easy to use. The hydrophilic coating and the polished eyelets provides for an easy and convenient catheterisation.
SpeediCath is also PVC- and phthalate-free, limiting the environmental impact.
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-catheterization. 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 minimizes the risk of urethral damage.
The hydrophilic coating and the polished coated eyelets are on all SpeediCath catheters.
SpeediCath® catheters are indicated for use by patients with chronic urine retention and patients with a post void residual volume (PVR) due to neurogenic and non-neurogenic voiding dysfunction. The catheter is inserted into the urethra to reach the bladder allowing urine to drain. SpeediCath catheters are available by prescription only. Patients performing self-catheterization should follow the advice of, and direct questions about use of the product to, their medical professional. Before using the device, carefully read the product labels and information accompanying the device including the instructions for use which contain additional safety information. The SpeediCath catheter is for single use only; discard it after use. If you experience symptoms of a urinary tract infection, or are unable to pass the catheter into the bladder, contact your healthcare professional.
