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 common problem and obvious oversight
in a standard of use medical device when used in certain patient population; saw a solution and went above and beyond to
maximize patient care. (Inventor Matthew A. Gomez / Utility Patent
granted 2008)

This product has proved that it
has and will substantially improve and change the daily lives of some 4-5 million people men,
women and children worldwide
, that because of disease or injury have to utilize this system of urinary elimination.
The addition of this Supra-pubic 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the majority of if not all the downfalls of the current outdated and inadequate system while reducing or preventing
o
ther illnesses and maladies that these patients unfortunately have come to expect and ordinarily acquire with the current
system; such as
Wound Formation and frequent Urinary Tract Infections, etc. etc, while also providing its user added
comfort, confidence, mobility, interaction and independence.

It has been postulated by Nephrologists that the utilization of the Supra-Cath adaptor could also conceivably 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 plagued the worlds S/P population
{
http://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases_conditions/hic-neurogenic-bladder },
and as several forms of Renal cancers are linked to those who suffer from Frequent UTI's,
{
http://www.cancer.org/cancer/bladdercancer/detailedguide/bladder-cancer-risk-factors }
it is thought and reasoned that the introduction and the utilization of the Supra-Cath positioning adaptor therefore

could also possibly result in a decreased risk / rate of incidences of S/P patients from getting or acquiring Bladder Cancer,
or other types of Urological / Renal Cancers.  

This purely informative website shows you the newest improvement to the standard Supra-Pubic Catheter system, that again
eliminates all the downfalls of the current system and now gives the medical community an answer and an alternative to the
present day flaw riddled system.

The myriad of advantages that the Supra-Cath system affords its users are indeed 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 originate
s 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 !!!!!!!!
