What Should I Know About the SpeediCath Flex Coudé Pro Catheter?
About the SpeediCath Flex Coudé Pro Catheter
The SpeediCath Flex Coudé Pro Catheter is a newly released catheter that offers an all-in-one, discreet, and convenient way to self-cath. With an ultra-flexible insertion tip, you can easily guide the catheter through the urethra and into the bladder, and the dry sleeve surrounding the tube itself allows you to catheterize without ever touching the catheter, offering you a more hygienic and sterile cathing experience. When you’re done, simply lock the ends back together for a clean and discreet way to dispose of the catheter.
Speedicath Flex Coudé Pro Pocket Catheter features all the same amazing benefits of the regular size, except it comes in discreet packaging. It’s perfect for pocketing, packing away in luggage, or carrying in a backpack.
The latest update offers Easy-Pack packaging, which makes it easy to open, close, and bring along wherever you go. Additionally, it features less aluminum than earlier releases, so it’s even easier on the environment!
The size of the standard Speedicath Flex comes in a 4-inch wide, 9 1/4-inch long pack, while the pocket catheter option clocks in at a mere 3 inches wide. Plus, it’s 2 inches shorter in length than the standard Easy-Pack of the regular Flex catheter.

How do I use the SpeediCath Flex Coudé Pro Catheter?
Wash your hands and gather any accessories you may need, such as disinfecting wipes or gloves, then remove the cover label from the adhesive area on the catheter package, so you can attach it to a clean surface within your reach when you’re ready to open and use it.
Prepare by using disinfecting wipes, putting on gloves, or laying down a drape on your lap for additional protection, if you prefer.
Open the packaging by using the circular ring to pull the package covering out and then down until you see the gray dots indicating the tear stop.
Open the catheter by twisting the lock. Be sure to hold both sides of the catheter up so that none of the liquid inside, which helps lubricate the catheter, will escape or drip out. If you use a collection bag for your urine, you can easily connect the catheter to it. Don’t let the flexible tip touch anything before you insert it into your urethra to make sure the entire process stays as sterile as possible.
After catheterizing, simply put the ends back together and twist the lock to seal the catheter. You can put it back inside the collection bag and close it to dispose of it hygienically and without a mess.
