CompactCath is a revolutionary urinary catheter that could drastically change the lives of people who self catheterize. Now, for the first time, the general public can touch and see CompactCath at the AARP Life@50+ Expo in Boston, on May 8-10th, 2014.
Founded in 2011 and an alumni of Stanford StartX-Med accelerator, CompactCath’s compact packaging, pre-lubrication and simple disposal mechanism helps ease the lives of those who self-catheterize daily. It eliminates the inconvenience of carrying, concealing, and disposing of traditional catheters.
CompactCath is expecting FDA clearance in summer 2014. Most recently, CompactCath has been issued two patents and closed a seed funding round from the Stanford-StartX fund among other angel investors.
Prospective users will be able to see the CompactCath product, talk to the co-founders, and evaluate the product's impact for themselves at the AARP Life@50+ Expo. CompactCath is offering a solution to bladder health issues that many men and women in the aging population are facing. The product is equally suitable to all individuals of all ages.
The national AARP Life@50+ Expo targets the aging community with pavilions in health technology, home, leisure, fitness, and more.
CompactCath was founded by group of physicians, engineers and business people, and developed in cooperation with doctors, nurses and patients.
