CompactCath Expands Product Portfolio with New Discreet Straight and Coudé Intermittent Catheters
Products welcome added relief for everyday self-catheterizing users
PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CompactCath (www.compactcath.com), a medical device company committed to improving the quality of life for people with bladder conditions, has announced the expansion of its intermittent urinary catheter product line with the addition of CompactCath® Coudé and OneCath®. The new CE and FDA approved devices will be available from various distributors, wholesalers, and directly at www.compactcath.com.
“Since launching the CompactCath brand, we’ve received overwhelming positive feedback from both users and clinicians, citing the catheter’s non-touch insertion, discreetness, portability, and convenience as revolutionary in comparison to current catheters available in the marketplace,” said Naama Stauber Breckler, CEO of CompactCath. “We have also found that in addition to compact catheter solutions for active lifestyles, there is a rising need for affordable catheters that don't sacrifice quality for cost, especially for the uninsured, underinsured, and those with high deductibles, and that’s why we created OneCath®.”
OneCath® has been introduced as the perfect complement to the CompactCath intermittent urinary catheter line. Available in both a straight and coudé tip in pediatric and adult sizes, OneCath® is a high quality catheter at an affordable price point, designed to improve the lives of patients and help in an industry with continuously rising healthcare costs. CompactCath is committed to eliminating the use of known carcinogens in the medical market place, and its products are 100% DEHP, BPA, and Rubber Latex free.
CompactCath® Coudé combines the compact design of CompactCath®, providing a smaller, easy to use, and discreet catheterization experience unlike traditional catheters. It is the only, pocket sized 16” long catheter with a coudé tip that fits in the palm of the hand and features a 100% non-touch system, fire-polished eyelets, silicone oil lubrication, and drainage control. CompactCath® Coudé is a welcome addition to the company’s product line, increasing the reach for those who require a curved tip to successfully drain their bladder. CompactCath® Coudé was designed for easier insertion and is the first of its kind to feature the unique “Case Up, Tip Up” design, which simplifies the catheterization process by reducing the need for visual dependency.
“With traditional coudé catheters, it’s difficult to know whether the tip is pointing in the right direction, which is crucial for proper insertion,” said Dr. Daniel Hong, CompactCath’s Chief Medical Officer. “We’ve alleviated this problem by simplifying the design of the catheter. As long as CompactCath® Coudé is held in the vertical position, the tip will also be in the vertical, upright position, allowing for correct insertion and removal throughout the catheterization process. This creates a manageable and controllable procedure by greatly reducing discomfort and the risk of catheter associated trauma to the urethra. We have invented the first catheter which eliminates the need for a guide stripe as we commonly see on coudé catheters, simplifying the insertion process and allowing users to catheterize correctly and with confidence.”
The CompactCath line now has products to fit all lifestyles and budgets, and features the following:
- CompactCath®, ready to use, compact pocket-sized catheter
- OneCath®, high quality catheter at an affordable price point for the underinsured and those with high deductibles
- 100% smooth, fire-polished eyelets
- DEHP, BPA, and Rubber Latex Free
- User-friendly design
- Available in straight and coudé tips in a variety of sizes for men and women
- Available through distributors and wholesalers nationwide
- Reimbursed by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurances
Along with its product expansion, CompactCath is also focused on expanding its marketing and brand awareness campaign to reach catheter users and clinicians. The company will be supporting its products with its first ever above the line advertising direct-to-consumer campaign featuring dedicated TV spots, trade shows and magazine placements to increase the reach of consumers who can benefit from these new product additions. The expanded product line will debut at the 48th Annual Meeting of the International Continence Society in Philadelphia on August 28-31, 2018.
CompactCath is committed to improving the quality of life for those who suffer from bladder conditions and need to self-catheterize. CompactCath is composed of a multidisciplinary team of physicians, engineers, and catheter users who share a passion for healthcare, design, and comfort. Established in 2012 at Stanford University, CompactCath is driven by the goal to design medical devices that enable those with chronic conditions to lead active, thriving, independent lives.
