CompactCath receives 510(k) Clearance for Next-Generation compact intermittent urinary catheter

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CompactCath, Inc., a medical device company committed to improving the quality of life for people with bladder conditions announced today that it received FDA 510(k) Clearance to market its intermittent urinary catheter. This innovative compact, pre-lubricated and easy-to-use intermittent urinary catheter will enable people to catheterize regularly while maintaining their privacy and discreetness.  The modern packaging and disposal mechanism eliminate the inconvenience of carrying, concealing, and disposing of traditional catheters. CompactCath's FDA clearance is a big step forward for users looking for a modern, friendly and reliable catheter alternative.

The catheter contains additional hygiene features such as the sliding sheath that allows an easier non-touch catheterization, and it is pre-lubricated to reduce the friction and promote ease of insertion. CompactCath is available in a variety of sizes and lengths optimized for use by women, men and children.

"One of the problems with the current medical system is that solutions are designed for the hospital and not for people's everyday life," said Dr. William Kennedy, Chief Pediatric Urology, LPCH, Stanford. "The innovation is fantastic because it not only preserves the privacy for the patient, but can also improve infection control."

"Our goal is to ease the lives of people who self-catheterize, by improving quality of care. We used human centric design and have worked with dozens of physicians, nurses and patients to create a product that would make a difference in this space," said CompactCath's co-founder and CEO Naama Stauber.  

CompactCath is expected to be commercially available in 2015.

Meet CompactCath's team and see the product at the SUNA conference on Oct 31st -Nov 3rd in Orlando, Florida.
