Frequently Asked Question
CATHETRIX’s flagship product FoleySafe is the world’s first Foley catheter stabilizer that actively prevents possible damage to the bladder and urethra from accidental urinary catheter extraction.
FoleySafe prevents accidental urinary catheter extraction. If the Foley catheter is pulled with a force that could harm the patient, FoleySafe will cut the sterile fluid tube and let the retention balloon deflate, permitting the catheter to slide out safely.
FoleySafe also prevents catheter dislodgement and minimizes movement, thus reducing the risk of Catheter-associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI).
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common infections developed by catheterized patients in health care facilities.
Discomfort from the catheter often leads to intentional or unintentional pulling and extraction of the catheter, which in turn increases risk of infection and severe damage to the bladder or urethra.
FoleySafe also prevents catheter dislodgement and minimizes movement, thus reducing the risk of CAUTI.
FoleySafe increases patient safety by offering an inexpensive, technologically sophisticated catheter add-on. The easy-to-use safety device is simply snapped onto any inserted urethral catheter tube. If the catheter tube is pulled, the safety device instantly cuts completely through the catheter tube. The inflated balloon in the patient’s bladder deflates and is safely removed, thus avoiding serious injury.
FoleySafe has already been patented and received US FDA, EU CE Mark, KFDA and Canada Health clearances.
CATHETRIX has already built a network of distributors in United States, Canada (North America), South Korea (Asia), United Kingdom, Romania and France (Europe), and Togo (Africa).
