A company seeks a low-friction surface for ready-to-use intermittent catheters for both men and women, with the goal of achieving insertion and retraction without causing any trauma or perception of trauma. The low-friction surface must operate during insertion, while the catheter is in place, and during removal. Balance between kink-resistance and flexibility is important, and the ability to insert the catheter without touching it would be ideal. It must offer 3-5 years of shelf life at ambient temperatures, and use biocompatible materlals.
