Ur24Technology has invented the first external catheter sytem which actively empties the bladder for men, women and children.
Ur24Technology was founded by Landon Duval, an inventor and entrepreneur. Mr. Duval invented the TrueClr external catheter after he saw his friend suffer from nocturia, a condition in which a person wakes often during the night to urinate. DuVall researched, designed, and developed five different prototypes before his idea became a reality. Today, Ur24Technology has patents for their external catheters specifically designed for Adult Males, Adult Females, Infant Males and Infant Females.
Ur24Technology's innovative catheter system seeks to eliminate the high risk of Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTIs). Of all hospital-acquired urinary tract infections, 80% are a result of internal catheters. The TrueClr patented catheters can obtain the same results of an indwelling catheter, while removing the risk of infection.
Currently, there are several external catheter options available for men and even fewer options for women. However, the TrueClr catheters are unique because they empty the bladder completely without the necessary muscle control needed to urinate. The Ur24T TrueClr Urine Collection Apparatus (UCA), which is the part that is contact with the body, has a ten foot tube which is attached to an aspirator. The low suction of the apirator extracts the urine and moves the urine to a collection canister. This process avoids urine to skin contact and even allows for a "clean catch" urine specimen with initial use.
The Ur24Technology TrueClr catheters are non-invasive, non-adhesive, latex-free, leak-proof, easy-to-use (no medical training needed), and eliminates the discomforot and risk of infection from an indwelling catheter.
