The Self-Cath Hydrogel intermittent urinary catheter from Mentor Corp. is designed to reduce the risk of urinary tract infections in patients who must self-catheterize.

It features a proprietary micro-bead lubricant coating that reduces urethral friction. The introducer tip, hybrid design, and telescoping extension sleeve are all intended to provide additional protection against cross-contamination of the catheter, which can lead to infection. The catheter's pocket-sized packaging presents a significant improvement over conventional catheters in maintaining privacy and ease of use, Mentor says.
