MTG - Medical Technologies of Georgia
Medical Technologies of Georgia, Inc. (MTG) is a family-owned, medical manufacturing company based in Georgia. MTG is owned and operated by the same people who pioneered and marketed closed system intermittent catheters under the company name MMG Healthcare. These products became famous as “the” intermittent catheters proven to reduce recurrent urinary tract infections for people who use IC as their primary method of bladder control.
Since Medical Technologies of Georgia, Inc. (MTG) is wholly devoted to improving the quality of life for those who use intermittent catheterization, MTG has significantly improved the former catheter to make it easier to use. Thus the production of MTG Instant Cath™ and MTG Instant Cath™ Deluxe vinyl catheters came to be. The production of these products, from assembly, packaging and sterilization, is done entirely within the United States.
The soft, silicone, introducer tip of the MTG Instant Cath® Deluxe, Closed System Intermittent Catheter, is designed to shield the catheter from contact with bacteria located within the first 1.5cm (about ½”) of the distal urethra. Most urethral bacteria are located in the distal urethra, so if the catheter is passed beyond this region without coming in contact with these potential pathogens, will not be pushed further into the urethra, or to the bladder, by the catheter, itself.
To greatly enhance ease of use, each MTG Instant Cath® Deluxe catheter includes the added benefit of the patented EZ-Advancer® valve. As you pass the catheter to the bladder, the catheter does not retract into the bag, providing effortless catheterization. There’s no need to clamp down to stabilize, or to ever straighten the bag. Simply, advance the catheter – instantly!
When voiding is complete,and the catheter has been removed from the body, here’s a tip to easily empty the bag:
• EZ-Advancer® valve – catheter moves forward without retraction
• Easy to empty

Urgent and Extremely Important!!
Within the past year an extremely disturbing trend has emerged. More and more insurance companies are excluding sterile intermittent catheters and other related supplies from their policies.
Insurance companies are currently excluding all urological supplies from some of their renewals after previously covering these items. It is extremely important during this open enrollment period to confirm that your new policy still covers sterile intermittent catheters, closed system catheters, hydrophilic catheters, leg bags, bedside bags and external condom catheters.
Don’t just assume that all of your urological supplies will continue to be covered. Please be proactive and contact your HR department or insurance agent to confirm that all urological supplies are covered in your new policy. You can also contact us and we will verify that your policy covers your urological supplies. 203-292-5043
