3. Perfect for Public Restrooms: Extra Long M14XL CURE Catheter
New mom Jenn Sexton struggled with wanting to keep up with her young son Thomas and their busy lives that often took them multiple places during the day, outside of the home. As a paraplegic, Jenn found herself being nervous and sometimes hesitant to leave the house because of her mobility challenges.
“I have to get my legs out to be able to shift from my wheelchair to the toilet, and it’s very hard to transfer in public restrooms.”
“It’s hard for me, and I’m a T-12 paraplegic, which means I am very lucky to still have my abdominal muscle strength. Even then, it hurts to reach the toilet. For people with higher level injuries, I don’t even know how they do it by themselves in a public restroom. I know firsthand that it is difficult,” Jenn explained.
That all changed when Jenn’s medical supply provider introduced her to the Cure Medical M14XL Extra Long catheter. Suddenly, the need to transfer disappeared, along with her worries about leaving home for an extended period of time.
“Thanks to the Cure M14XL, I don’t have to transfer anymore and can go out without worrying. The extender tube on the catheter is amazing, and is easy to use,” Jenn added.
At 25-inches long, the M14XL Cure Catheter eliminates the need for extension tubing and may also help you avoid having to transfer too!
“I only learned about one kind of catheter while I was in rehab. I’m a very independent person though. I was in the military, and very self-reliant, so I want to do things on my own. Unfortunately, I didn’t learn about my options for using a different catheter until a long time had passed after I went home from the hospital,” Jenn said.
“Because of my limited knowledge about catheter types, I used to never go out of the house, especially while I was pregnant. Pregnant women will tell you, we go to the bathroom constantly!”
“Since I had a hard time transferring to the toilet, when I did leave my house, I was only willing to leave for three hours at the max,” Jenn commented. “That fear disappeared when I discovered the M14XL made by Cure Medical.”

“Until I found the extra long catheter from Cure Medical, I was stuck at home. The M14XL changed my life,” Jenn explains.
