NEWS and VIEWS
Cure Dextra™ proprietary attributes are intended to facilitate use, increase independence, and reduce risk of infections. A Support Band enables controlled use without the need to grip the device with two hands. Tip Advancing Technology moves the pre-lubricated catheter from the 1000 ml collection bag into the body without contact. Sterile intermittent catheterization is possible without the requirement to use gloves. A Gripper Arrow facilitates advancing the catheter with each forward stroke. The catheter does not retract on back strokes. Like all Cure Medical intermittent catheters, the Cure Dextra™ features polished eyelets for increased comfort and is made of quality materials – not made with DEHP*/DINP, BPA or NR-Latex.
In addition to experiencing immediate benefits associated with using the Cure Dextra™, there is opportunity for promising, future benefits – because Cure Medical has made an unsurpassed, permanent Cure Commitment to donate ten percent of net income to medical research in pursuit of a cure for spinal cord injuries and central nervous system disorders.
Free samples of the Cure Dextra™ Closed System are available through most medical product suppliers or online at www.curemedical-dextra.com.
