Catheterizing On My Own – How To | Quadriplegic (C5,C6,C7)


When I was in the hospital, I was told that I would be able to catheterize myself but I was unable to when I left because I was not shown a catheter that I could use with my poor hand dexterity. I searched the internet to find a catheter that was quad-friendly and found the MTG-EZ Gripper catheter. Being able to self-catheterize myself was life-changing because of the independence that I gained. In this video, I show you how I catheterize myself with an MTG EZ-Gripper catheter. How do you catheterize yourself?
