Catheterization Made Simple With New Generation of Catheters Designed to Fit Seamlessly Into Patients’ Everyday Lives
CompactCath (www.compactcath.com), a medical device company committed to improving the quality of life for people with bladder conditions, has today unveiled its flagship intermittent urinary catheter designed to address the most common frustrations of regular catheter users. The FDA-Cleared device will be available today through various distributors including 180 Medical, Strive Medical, ABC Medical, Independence Medical and Wilmington Medical Supply (WMS), and will be fully reimbursable through insurance carriers and Medicare.
Designed by a team of physicians and engineers that met at Stanford, CompactCath fits in the palm of the hand, providing a smaller, easier and more discreet experience than traditional catheters. CompactCath comes pre-lubricated, has a drainage control mechanism, a sleeve for more hygienic non-touch insertion, and lastly opaque packaging that brings users more privacy. It alleviates the negative emotions associated to an already difficult situation by empowering users with more patient-centered functionality and design.
