Present Benefits. Promising Future.
In 2007, Bob Yant, a C5 quadriplegic, founded Cure Medical in Newport Beach, California. From the beginning, the business objective has been to provide superior intermittent catheters at a great value – while supporting medical research. Being confident that ‘Research Is The Key’ to a cure, Cure Medical maintains an unsurpassed Cure Commitment to support medical research in pursuit of a cure for spinal cord injuries and central nervous system disorders.
Supporting research isn’t the only Cure Medical distinction. Manufacturing processes, material choices, and user driven product innovations also set Cure Medical apart from other catheter manufacturers.
The exceptional difference
Although Cure Medical intermittent catheters function like others, they offer unique features which translate into benefits that our customers value:
Not made with DEHP/DINP, BPA, or Natural Rubber Latex
Cure Medical products are not made with DEHP/DINP, a known carcinogen, not made with BPA, and not made with Natural Rubber Latex, a common allergen.
A study conducted at Craig Center in Denver found that people with SCI are 16 to 28 times more likely to get bladder cancer. To finally have a product on the market that is not made with cancer-causing plasticizer or natural rubber latex is a huge advancement. Learn more about the concerns with DEHP here.
Always smooth, fire-polished eyelets
Unlike many PVC catheters that are cold-punched in the manufacturing process, all Cure Medical catheters have smooth, fire-polished eyelets for increased comfort and a more positive catheterization experience.
Popular styles and sizes
Although Cure Medical products are of exceptional quality, they are still ‘reimbursement friendly’.
