Adapta Medical receives FDA market clearance for touchless urinary catheter

Adapta Medical, Inc. has received FDA market release for the PerfIC Cath® intermittent touchless urinary catheter. The sterile catheter system was designed by J. Glen House, MD, a C7 quadriplegic with limited finger dexterity.

FDA clearance for the PerfIC Cath® will result in Adapta expanding the PerfIC Cath® product line and launching the new mPower Cath™ series catheter product line. Both product lines feature hydrophilic and gel lubricants for straight and coude-tipped catheters. The PerfIC Cath® catheters have an attached urine collection bag while the mPower Cath™ products have a urine collection bag that is not attached to the catheter.

"The PerfIC Cath® catheter represents a significant advancement in intermittent catheter technology and is extremely easy to use, even with limited dexterity," said House. "It is designed for those with a spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, stroke, spina bifida or other conditions that require a catheter, but can be used easily by those with normal hand dexterity too. It is created for users by users." With a variety of patents, the catheters are truly unique and offer a new experience for catheter users.
