Phil Dye, the founder of Zcath, researched catheter-related problems for over 20 years and believes a new catheter design could help solve these problems. The most common standard design closes the top of the catheter tube and cuts eyelets one above the other into the sidewalls. When Benjamin Franklin introduced the flexible catheter, dating back to 1752, no one could have anticipated that it could take over 200 years for another significant design change to occur. Do you think the common standard catheter is overdue for a change? We do too!
Zcath completely revamped the common standard catheter design to address some of the well-known cathing problems. We felt a new catheter design had to be developed to help solve catheter-related problems. The past seven years of research resulted in Zcath being awarded multiple patents in the USA and Europe. Zcath has a large opening at the top, no eyelets, smooth surface design, and grooves for lubricant. We believe Zcath is dramatically different. Zcath's most significant research and development focused on reducing urine residuals. Another area of focus that Zcath considered very important was reducing catheter-related trauma. We also wanted to see if it was possible to reduce the amount of bacteria that was introduced to the bladder when cathing. We believe that we have made great strides toward achieving our goals. As soon as the results are available, we look forward to sharing them with you.
The patented ZCATH catheter is a revolutionary intermittent urinary catheter with a molded open tip and single entrance opening, which eliminates eyelets.
The opening has a smooth bulbous design.
Rounded smooth scallops reduce body contact and provide grooves for lubricant.
The entire catheter is molded inside and out.
The opening at the top allows the catheter to be located at the lowest part of the bladder.
