SUPRA-CATH
(Original Concept Design)
URETHRAL / URINARY CATHETER
(Malfunctioning of the Current System)
BETTER FIT.

PEACE OF MIND
.
WORLDS ONLY (TRUE) SUPRA-PUBIC CATHETER
Specifically designed to address the unique demands of the supra-pubic stoma.
Immobilizes, positions and stabilizes your S/P cath for improved & optimal performance.

How can you expect your Catheter to function optimally, when its not being kept and held in its best operational positioning?
The Supra-Cath Adaptor was created by a Med Surg/ I.C.U. Nurse, who recognized a commonly seen problem and obvious
oversight
, and the limitations or flaws in the standard of care medical device the Urethral/Foley or standard urinary catheter
when used in this certain patient population; and saw a simple solution and went above and beyond to maximize patient care.
(Inventor Matthew A. Gomez / Utility Patented 2008)

The addition of this Supra-pubic
positioning adaptor can be applied to any standard latex or silicone urinary or urethral
catheter, and it eliminates the majority of if not all the downfalls of the current outdated and inadequate system while
reducing or preventing other illnesses and maladies that these patients unfortunately have come to expect and ordinarily
acquire with the current system; such as
Wound Formation and Frequent or Chronic Urinary Tract Infections, etc. etc,
while also providing its user added comfort, confidence, mobility, interaction and independence.

It has even been additionally postulated by Top Nephrologists, that the institution and utilization of the Supra-Cath adaptor
could also conceivably also improve renal function/health and longevity in its users by resealing the bladder
and returning the bladder back to its more natural and intended state of pressure and sterility.

And, as frequent UTI's are often prone to plague the worlds S/P population
{
http://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases_conditions/hic-neurogenic-bladder },
and as several forms of Renal cancers are
also linked to those who suffer from Frequent UTI's,
{
http://www.cancer.org/cancer/bladdercancer/detailedguide/bladder-cancer-risk-factors }
therefore it is thought and deductively reasoned that the introduction and the utilization of the Supra-Cath positioning adaptor
could also possibly result in a decreased risk / rate of incidences of S/P patients from getting, contracting, acquiring or
developing Bladder Cancer,
and or other types of Renal or Urological Cancers.  

This purely informative website shows you the newest improvement to the standard Supra-Pubic Catheter system,
that again eliminates all or most of the downfalls of the current system and now gives the medical community,
and provides an answer, an alternative and a solution to the present day flaw riddled system.
The myriad of advantages that the Supra-Cath system affords its users are numerous and quite literally,
Outstanding !  
If you had to have a Supra-Pubic Catheter, which catheter would you choose?????
The Catheter is inserted directly into the bladder through the Supra-Pubic area.
The balloon on the catheter is then inflated within the bladder, and then pulled taut to
ideally occlude the opening from the bladder to the stomal tunnel.
The Supra-Cath adaptor is now threaded down the length of the catheter towards the
balloon, securing and immobilizing the catheter at that point securing the balloon under slight
tension in its ideal location (similar to the way a gastrostomy tube works),
thusly creating a closed/ sealed system.
The Catheter is inserted directly into the bladder through the Supra-Pubic area.
The balloon on the catheter is then inflated within the bladder, and then pulled taut to
ideally occlude the opening from the bladder to the stomal tunnel.
The problem with this system is that with the rigidity and flexibility of a latex or silicone
catheter and the weight of the fluid filled balloon along with any slight movement of the
patient or catheter dislodges the balloon from it’s ideal location resulting in malfunction
.
Counter
Model 2007
The "Suction cup" shaped balloon
retention disc does the job of
the original disc
however now in not contacting
the insertion site whatsoever,
the cup design avoids problems that
often originates at this
high risk area.

This cup also provides ventilation,
protection and visualization of the tissue
beneath the device, creating a overall
safer, dryer and healthier environment
at the insertion site.
THE SUPRA-PUBIC SOLUTION

Do you want a
catheter that just
hangs there, left at
the mercy of
gravity and patient
movement?

Or

Do you want a
catheter that is
held or secured in
place /immobilized
in its intended and
most operationally
functional position?

The
Supra-Cath
Adaptor
positions, stabilizes
and immobilizes any
urinary catheter being
utilized for supra-pubic
purposes.

An
Improvement
for All,
and Truly
Life-Changing
for some.

The "Supra-Cath" Supra-Pubic Adaptor creates and maintains a  
physical barrier to leakage making it virtually impossible for
fluid /urine to escape around the catheter and its balloon
under normal S/P conditions.

Simply just a better all around structured and performing
catheter for Supra-pubic usage !!!!!!!!
