About Sunmed

Suzhou Sunmed Co., Ltd. is a professional leading manufacturer and exporter of first aid, medical, and healthcare products in China. We operate multiple production bases in Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Anhui Province.

With 30 years of experience in the medical device(medical equipment and medical consumbles) industry, we specialize in first aid, wound dressing, medical supply (such as medical gauze, bandages, medical tape, medical cotton, and medical non-woven products), sports bandages and family healthcare (including kinesiology tape,pill box,hot&cold packs), and medical instruments (such as disposable syringes, catheters, surgical consumables, and other medical consumables).
As a OEM Foley Catheter Manufacturers and Foley Catheter Factory in China.We have exported our products to over 60 countries worldwide, including key markets in Europe (such as the UK, Germany, Spain, Denmark, and the Netherlands), Southeast Asia (including Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand), Africa (such as Tanzania, Mauritius, and South Africa), and Oceania (including Australia and New Zealand).
Our markets include hospitals, first aid suppliers, supermarkets, and retail sports shops.In 2008, we established our first aid factory to meet the demands of our first aid customers. In 2021, to accommodate our customers' growing needs, we established our own factory for kinesiology tape, cohesive bandages (self-adhesive wrap), and elastic adhesive bandages.

Sunmed boasts a professional quality control team comprising hundreds of personnel who rigorously adhere to inspection procedures to ensure our Foley Catheter Wholesale meet ISO13485:2016 standards. Most of our products are CE certified, and our Suzhou factories comply with FDA requirements.

Industry knowledge
Are latex Foley catheters coated or lubricated to facilitate insertion and reduce friction? 
Latex Foley catheters are often coated or lubricated to facilitate insertion and reduce friction during placement. The lubrication helps to minimize discomfort for the patient and reduces the risk of trauma or irritation to the urethra and surrounding tissues. There are various types of coatings and lubricants used for this purpose, including water-based lubricants, hydrophilic coatings, and silicone-based coatings.
Water-based lubricants are commonly used on latex Foley catheters. They provide a smooth surface that reduces friction during insertion and removal. These lubricants are typically applied to the external surface of the catheter and may require additional water activation before use.
Hydrophilic coatings are another option for lubricating Foley catheters. These coatings are water-activated and become slippery when exposed to moisture. They provide a low-friction surface that facilitates easy insertion and minimizes trauma to the urethra.
Silicone-based coatings are also used to lubricate Foley catheters. Silicone is known for its biocompatibility and non-stick properties, making it an effective lubricant for medical devices. Silicone coatings create a smooth surface that reduces friction and discomfort during insertion and removal of the catheter.

 What is the specific composition of the latex material used in Foley catheters?
The specific composition of latex material used in latex Foley catheters typically consists primarily of natural rubber latex, which is derived from the sap of the rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis). Natural rubber latex is composed of various organic compounds, including:
Polyisoprene: This is the primary polymer component of natural rubber latex. Polyisoprene molecules are long chains of repeating isoprene units, which give latex its elastic properties.
Proteins: Latex also contains proteins, such as rubber elongation factor (REF) and others, which contribute to the material's mechanical properties and stability.
Lipids and Resins: These compounds are present in smaller amounts and play a role in the structure and properties of natural rubber latex.
Water: Latex naturally contains a significant amount of water, which is typically removed during the manufacturing process to produce a solid latex material suitable for medical devices like Foley catheters.
While natural rubber latex is commonly used in Foley catheters, some individuals may have allergies or sensitivities to latex proteins. In such cases, alternative materials like silicone or synthetic latex may be used to manufacture catheters to reduce the risk of allergic reactions.
