The Problem Solved by the Technology
How the Technology Solves the Problem
Protoypes and pilot production of the inverting sheath catheter, introducers and endoscope covers have been initiated, and FDA 510(k) approvals have been obtained, but sales have not commenced. Needs to be carried forward to the next steps, by an established Device Company.
The inverting sheath catheter was specifically designed to eliminate urinary tract infections ("UTI"), and initial tests suggest that this goal has been achieved.
The endoscope sheaths have several unique performance features. They fit all commercially available endoscopes, have far better optics and have side access channels.
