REDUCING URINARY TRACT INFECTION BROUGHT BY THE USE OF URINARY CATHETER

 

The urinary system is complexe and become unbalanced as a urinary catheter is inserted. As the natural urine flow is drained on the inside of the Catheter, the urethra is not anymore flushed and a bacterial colonisation occur.  Bacterial colonisation is the major problem of nowadays urinary catheter, leading to encrustation, damages to the bladder and the urethra, and discomfort for the patient. 

Flow is using the most of the natural capability of the urinary system to prevent bacterial colonisation. The surface of Flow is entirely drained by urine and is impact is limited to the prosthetic area, leaving the bladder and the urethra free of stress.
