CleanCath Catheter Sterilizer

CleanCath is a catheter steriliser designed to enable the reuse of single-use catheters.

To operate CleanCath, users rinse the used catheter with warm water, and place it into the body of the device. Closing the lid initiates the cleaning cycle by turning on short-wavelength ultraviolet LEDs which expose the catheter to radiation, completely sterilising it. The steriliser is mobile and discreet, for use both at home and on the go, allowing catheter removal with minimal risk of contamination. Inspired by the difficulties of health insurance programs that often leave people short of the required number of catheters, forcing unsanitary reuse, CleanCath reduces waste, provides the user autonomy, and lessens the financial burden of personal healthcare.
