Cure Dextra™ Catheter Is Ideal for Users with Limited Hand Dexterity

Cure Medical was founded in 2007 by Bob Yant, who became a quadriplegic after he sustained a spinal cord injury in an accident in 1981. Since then, Cure has manufactured high-quality intermittent catheters for users of all ages from all journeys of life. Additionally, Cure Medical always donates 10% of its net income toward research for spinal cord injuries and central nervous system disorders.

The new Cure Dextra Closed System Catheter was created for any and all catheter users. However, it’s especially ideal for those with limited hand dexterity as its unique features can help them self-catheterize on their own.

Whether you’re fully able-bodied or if you have limited hand function due to a spinal cord injury, Multiple sclerosis, arthritis, spina bifida, or another condition, the Cure Dextra may be the catheter product solution you’ve been looking for.

Features of the Cure Dextra™ Closed System Catheter

This innovative closed system catheter from Cure Medical helps increase your independence while also helping to reduce the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Cure Dextra Catheter Features

First, it reduces contamination from direct hand contact on the catheter tube due to being housed inside its own integrated urine collection bag. Also, having an integrated collection bag is ideal for people in wheelchairs who prefer to self-catheterize without having to transfer from their wheelchair to a toilet. You can self-catheterize anywhere you have privacy, thanks to its all-in-one design.

Another handy feature that helps prevent infection is the flexible, pre-lubricated Cure ProteX Introducer Tip™. This works by helping the catheter tube bypass the highest concentrations of bacteria in the outermost part of the urethra. The introducer tip’s unique design is designed to help prevent the transfer of bacteria.

Both the catheter package and the catheter bag feature a finger hole, which makes handling and carrying easier for those with limited hand dexterity. Also, you can slip a hand or fingers through the Support Band on the back of the catheter bag. This gives you better control of the catheter bag without needing both hands.

Lastly, the Cure Dextra™ has a Gripper Arrow, which is the contact point for easy catheter insertion. The user can stroke the Gripper Arrow’s chamber with their finger, thumb, or palm. Then the catheter advances for insertion.

More features:

  • Tip Advancing Technology
  • Cure ProteX Introducer Tip™
  • Gripper Arrow to make it easy to insert the catheter
  • Pre-lubricated with a unique hydrophilic coating
  • Polished drainage eyelets
  • Ready to use without additional preparation
  • Support Band for controlled use without using both hands
  • Not made with DEHP, DINP, BPA, or natural rubber latex
  • Integrated 1000 mL collection bag
