Over 4M people in the US need intermittent catheters to urinate, using 2200 catheters a year. People often reuse catheters for financial and logistical reasons, leading to negative health outcomes such as UTIs, preventable hospitalizations, and outsized burdens on insurance providers. CathBuddy allows users to safely sterilize & store their catheters. It restores user dignity, relieves financial burden, and reduces users’ ecological footprint by reducing annual catheter needs from 2200 to 50.
CathBuddy is a handheld catheter sterilizer that empowers intermittent catheters users to regain agency and reduce their carbon footprint.
