What Are Male Intermittent Catheters?
Intermittent catheters, also called “in and out” catheters, are one of the original styles of catheters and still one of the most commonly prescribed. This catheter type connects to a separate drainage bag for urine collection; this drainage bag can then be disposed of or emptied into the toilet. Both ambulatory and non-ambulatory patients use intermittent catheters, which are generally easy to place and drain.
Male catheters are often prescribed by patient’s physicians to provide continued or corrective support for bladder functionality. Cure Medical catheters and male intermittent catheters are one of the most trusted names in the industry. While intermittent catheters are a popular style, several other’s are also commonly prescribed, including:
Foley Catheters: This type of urinary catheter is generally placed by doctors or nurses, drains into a collection bag for disposal, and works well for individuals who are unable to self-cath.
External Catheters: External catheters fit over the male’s penis and are held in place using adhesive or straps.
Closed System Catheters: There is no need with this catheter style to find a toilet or other place to drain your bladder as everything is directed into the included self-contained collection bag.
Hydrophilic Catheters: Hydrophilic catheters have a special hydrophilic coating that lubricates the catheter when activated with water. There are also hydrophilic catheter options that come pre-hydrated.

About Cure Medical
To learn about the history of Cure Medical and their male intermittent catheters, we need to look back to 1998. Cure Medical’s story begins in 1998 when its founder, Bob Yant, was involved in a diving accident that left him a C5 quadriplegic. This began Bob’s journey with Cure Medical to design medical catheters that were a safer, more comfortable choice, and that offered a greater value to its users.
Cure Medical was officially started in 2007. Since then, the line of Cure Medical catheters available to users has been developed to include a broad range of hydrophilic, male intermittent catheters, pocket, and closed system options made for men, women, and pediatric patients.
