NO SCARY CHEMICALS – Try the Pediatric Hydrophilic Cure Catheter
Children often have more severe allergic reactions than adults do, and this is due to their body size. A small amount of allergy-inducing substance often has a higher impact on a 40-lb. child than it will on a 200-lb. man. Finding the right catheter that works for your child can be frustrating, especially when you're trying to find one that's safe and easy-to-use.
The Pediatric Hydrophilic Cure Catheter is not made with DEHP, BPA or natural rubber latex – especially for those parents who are mindful about their children's chemical or allergen exposure.
DEHP is included on a published list of chemicals known to cause cancer and reproductive harm according to the state of California. Other manufacturers often use Di(2-ethylhexyl)
However, if you can avoid these chemicals all together, there's no reason not to. Cure Medical CEO John Anderson explains, "The use of DEHP in catheters creates a number health risks including patient exposure to hazardous chemicals which leaches from vinyl medical devices." That's why Cure Medical products are not made with DEHP.*
Likewise, latex may be in other brands of catheters. Natural rubber latex is a chemical which commonly causes irritation and can cause life-threatening allergic reactions. That's why Cure Medical catheters are not made with latex. By investing in advanced technology and selecting high quality materials for manufacturing, Cure Medical helps ensure that users experience maximum safety, comfort, and peace of mind.
