Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Discomfort during catheterisation measured by VAS-scale (0-10) [ Time Frame: 10 measurements in an 11 week period. 10 min after each catheterisation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A subject is assesing a VAS scale after each catheterisation.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: During the investigation 11 Weeks per subject ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety is evalueted continues while the subjects are testing the devices

  • Discomfort during urination post catheterisation [ Time Frame: 10 measurements in an 11 week period. 10 min after each catheterisation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects own assesment. Yes or no can be answered to discomfort during urination post catheterisation

  • Haematuria [ Time Frame: 10 measurements in an 11 week period. 10 min after each catheterisation ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Urine test after each catheterisation, and measured on a urine stix

  • Handling during insertion, withdrawal [ Time Frame: 10 measurements in an 11 week period. 10 min after each catheterisation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Ease of use assessed by nurses, measured on a 5 point scale

Detailed Description:

Intermittent catheterization is the preferred method for emptying the bladder in patients with spinal cord injury and neurogenic bladder dysfunction.

Coloplast have developed a new intermittent catheters. In this investigation this new test catheter will be compared with SpeediCat by assessing discomfort and pain associated with catheterization of healthy men. The reason for choosing healthy men is that many catheter users do not have full feeling in their urethra and therefore can not assess the discomfort.

55 healthy men who are ≥ 18 years and have no signs of urinary tract infection and do not have abnormalities, disease or have had operational interventions in the urinary tract will be included. They are recruited through advertisements on the website www.forsoegsperson.dk.
