Quality & innovation
Curan works with specialists on top-quality catheters, and other incontinence and urological products. To this end we regularly ask end users and professionals, such as doctors and nurses, about their experiences and ideas. We also provide information about our Research & Development activities and the innovations they produce.
Together with exclusive distributors, end users, professionals, suppliers and strategic partners, we collaborate to provide a balanced array of products and services.
At Curan we are always working on better products. This could be new products but also improved version of existing ones. In 2010, we developed Curan Lady especially for women; this came on to the market in 2011.
In 2010 we also developed the hygienic insertion aid Blue Grip®: a handy tool for inserting catheters without making skin contact. Curan catheters are extraordinarily flexible without losing any of their reliability. Curan protects its own innovations with the assistance of design and patent registration. This enables us to secure exclusive and unique innovations while protecting the technology behind them.
Take our Blue Grip® as an example. The instruction video for the Curan Man catheter shows the how the catheter works and how it can be helpful. The Blue Grip® insertion aid ensures hygienic insertions as you do not actually have to touch the catheter itself. At the same time it provides control over both the insertion and withdrawal of the catheter from the urethra.
This video shows Curan Man: a catheter that we developed in 2015 and made available in three sizes. The aim was to develop a compact catheter (just like the Curan Lady) that didn’t affect the shape of it. So a compact, flexible catheter that can be stored neatly with no telescopic components. And after it has been used, the catheter needs to be closed. A great example of product development based on the user’s needs.
In 2017 we introduced Curan Advantage. A hydrophilic coated catheter with a leak-free water pocket. The water pocket contains sterile water to activate the hydrophilic coating. The package is easy to open with a quick pinch. The perfect catheter for situations when there is no water to hand.
