Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Discomfort Measured on a VAS Scale 0 Being no Discomfort, 10 Being Worst Imaginable Discomfort. [ Time Frame: 14 days ]

    Participants were to test the catheter by self-catheterising a minimum of 4 catheters each day for 14 days.

    At the end of each study period participants were asked to indicate how they would rate the discomfort experienced during the catheterisation procedures. Discomfort was measured by the participants own rating of discomfort on a VAS scale from 0 (no discomfort) to 10 (worst imaginable discomfort)
