Foley catheter safety device
FoleySafe is a single-use catheter fixation device with
a unique feature – upon unintended or accidental pulling on the catheter, a cutting mechanism is activated, and the catheter is severed, thus deflating the retention balloon and preventing any damage or harm to the bladder or urethra.
Making its Cathetrix debut, the mechanism was engineered and tested by Flamingo with a granted patent (plus another two pending) and production line in 3BY Ltd. The product has obtained CE and FDA Class I clearance.
The entire FoleySafe design process was conducted in-house with Flamingo prototype capabilities, which enabled fast iterations and short development cycles from CAD files to testing and production.
