QUALITY OF LIFE
FOR MEN WITH URINARY RETENTION
Develop products to improve the quality of life for individuals with spinal injury.
Spinal Injuries are some of the most complex and devastating injuries. They are often permanent and always life-changing. Along with a myriad of health issues impacting the bowels, bones, skin, muscles, sexual function, and psycho-social challenges, a key, unaddressed challenge that people with spinal injury live with on a daily basis is Neurogenic Bladder. In this condition, a person cannot feel the fullness of their bladder nor can they control their bladder to urinate, leading to chronic Urinary Retention.
There are millions of men in the United States suffering from chronic Urinary Retention. Because of this, there is a need for a “smart” and an improved bladder management system. Leveraging personal experience, Spinal Singularity’s founder, Derek Herrera, was on a mission to revolutionize bladder management and the creation of a “smart” catheter system was put into motion.
The Connected Catheter System was designed and is currently being developed by Spinal Singularity. The Connected Catheter System is the first extended use, fully internal, wireless urinary catheter designed for adult males with Urinary Retention. Clinical trials and regulatory submissions for FDA clearance and CE Mark approval are currently underway
