Today, more than one million people worldwide require a catheter for every trip to the bathroom. Present day catheters are designed for the hospital and do not integrate into people’s lifestyles, causing embarrassment and lack of compliance. As a first-of-its-kind intermittent urinary catheter, CompactCath solves this problem. It is the smallest unisex intermittent catheter to offer touch-free insertion, lubrication, flow control and maximum privacy wherever you go. CompactCath empowers users to maintain their health with confidence. It is FDA cleared and has received awards from Stanford, where it was invented, and all throughout the world.
