The purpose of this study is to evaluate that the test catheter is no less accepted than the SpeediCath (SC) catheter.

Condition Intervention
Spinal Cord Injuries Device: test intermittent catheter Device: Intermittent catheterization

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomised, Cross-over, Open-labelled Study Evaluating the Acceptance of Test Catheters Compared to SpeediCath Catheters

Further study details as provided by Coloplast A/S:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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)
