The SURE Trial

Single-use versus Reuse Intermittent Catheterisation

Reuse of intermittent catheters has been a method of self-catheterisation utilised by patients for many decades. It is a preferred method of bladder emptying for many patients with voiding dysfunction.

Reuse of Nelaton catheters was common until 2003 when TGA regulations stated “devices labelled single use only must not be reused”.

Purchasing catheters for single-use only places a huge financial burden on patients.

The Pelvic Floor Unit at St George Hospital is conducting a study to compare the health and cost implications between two different ways of performing self-catheterisation – single use catheterisation versus reuse catheterisation.

The study runs for 16 weeks, during which participants receive FREE catheters.

To be eligible for the trial you must be:

• Over 18yrs of age
• Self-catheterising own bladder at least 2 times a day
• Able to attend the clinic for 6 visits over 16 weeks
• Willing to participate in both study groups (single-use catheterisation and reuse catheterisation techniques)

For further enquiries or to confirm your eligibility for the trial please email Hayley.Leek@sesiahs.health.nsw.gov.au or phone 9113 2632.

When I did supermarket shopping I used to get only as much as I could fit into a basket on my lap when I was on my own. On my way in one day a guy asked if I wanted "the" trolley. After telling him that I find it impossible to push a trolley around he brought out one designed to attach to a wheelchair. Seems they'd had one out the back for ages.

It is the same size as the new small ones that started appearing a while ago. Instead of a handle it is open under the front and sprung rods clip on my front forks and away we go.

It is a bit different to this but the same idea.



Feels odd at first as it makes pushing heavier (and more so as you go) and the turning circle is big, but at least I can do a bigger shop now.

Ask your supermarket whether they've got one and if they don't make sure they get one. They can contact Coles at Westfield Bondi to ask where they got theirs.
