- Proven to reduce UTIs
- Guardian tip
- Portable for people on the go
The RUSCH® MMG™ Intermittent Catheter Closed System by Teleflex® has been proven to reduce urinary tract infections. A clinical study concluded that the Rusch MMG Intermittent Catheter Closed System with an introducer tip that bypasses the colonized distal urethra significantly decreased the urinary tract infection rate in hospitalized spinal cord injured men on intermittent catheterization.1 The study also demonstrated that MMG users are nine times less likely to contract UTI’s than those using other conventional methods.
The soft silicone “introducer” tip shields the catheter from the first 1.5cm of the urethral opening during insertion thus bypassing the majority of urinary tract bacteria. The self-contained intermittent catheter system is fully protected within its own closed sterile field allowing for touchless catheterization. The catheter and soft silicone “Introducer” tip are both pre-coated with non-allergenic, water-soluble lubricant for easy insertion. No separate lubrication procedure is needed.
The MMG™ Closed Systems’ vinyl catheter drainage eyelets are recessed and polished and the tips are tapered assuring smoother glide passage through the urethra. The self-contained urine collection bag eliminates the need for separate containers, thus reducing the risk of spillage and allowing for ease of disposal. The MMG™ System provides greater comfort and mobility away from home. The MMG™ Systems’s unique patented “break-away” funnel end provides a safe and easy urine sampling procedure. Designed for single use only.
