CATHETRIX will present Foley/Safe 2.0, its new catheter stabilizer for prevention of UTIs and accidental Foley catheter extractions, at MEDICA 2021, which will take place November 15–18, 2021 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Medical equipment distributors, urologists and medical providers are invited to watch live demonstrations at CATHETRIX Booth J28 in Hall 16.
Foley/Safe 2.0 prevents catheter dislodgement and movement to reduce the risk of catheter associated urinary tract infection (UTI). The innovative catheter stabilizer prevents unintentional and accidental urinary catheter, thus avoiding damage to the bladder or urethra.
Once the Foley catheter is pulled with a force that can harm the patient, Foley/Safe 2.0 will cut the sterile fluid tube and let the retention balloon deflate, permitting the catheter to slide out safely.
“After many months of development, we are very proud to launch the second version of our catheter stabilizer, which proved itself in preventing UTIs and accidental Foley catheter extractions,” said Tal Hadass, chief marketing officer at CATHETRIX.
“MEDICA is an excellent opportunity for us to meet personally again with potential clients and demonstrate the effectiveness of Foley/Safe 2.0.”
Foley/Safe 2.0 provides two-layer protection securement to patients with Foley catheters, latex and silicone. The product offers the following advantages:
- Easy to use
- Stabilizes the catheter
- Prevents excessive movement
- Simple to attach
- Avoids accidental catheter extraction
- Saves hospitalization time
MEDICA is the world’s largest event for the medical sector and is expected to host several thousand exhibitors from more than 50 countries.
