A fully internal extended-use smart catheter system
A NEW BLADDER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
THE INTELLIGENT CHOICE
The IntelliFlow™ Catheter is fully internal to the male anatomy. The Catheter tip incorporates a magnetic valve-pump, which opens and closes via remote control and enables the bladder to fill naturally. The catheter enables users to empty their bladders comfortably and conveniently without frequent catheterization or external bag attached to the body to collect urine. It maintains its position with the help of anchoring features – no balloon needed.
The user places the controller outside the body near the location of the valve (in the inserted catheter) and activates the controller’s motor. When the valve is opened and the motor is activated, the titanium pin spins forward, actively propelling urine out of the bladder. This allows for a more complete emptying of bladder and expulsion of residual urine from the urethra.
When the cycle is complete the pin is activated again, spinning in reverse to close the valve. A weekly exchange of a sterile catheter, as opposed to multiple daily insertions, decreases the likelihood of bacteria being transmitted.
