(NAPSI)—For most of us, making a pit stop in the bathroom is not something to which we give much thought. However, many people require much more strategic planning, especially when out and about.

This is particularly true of people with impaired bladder function who are dependent on urinary catheters to drain their bladder.

According to the National Institutes of Health, urinary catheters have been used for over 3,500 years, but despite having been around for so long, even the most recent advancements in catheters have been made for the hospital or home use, rather than everyday use, making self-catheterization an awkward and uncomfortable experience.

A new device named CompactCath is set to shift that paradigm, creating a new generation of catheters designed to fit seamlessly into everyday life.

Designed at Stanford University by a team of physicians and engineers committed to improving the quality of life for those who need to self-catheterize, the new device makes it simpler than ever to live an active lifestyle, and is reimbursable through insurance and Medicare.

Fitting discreetly in the palm of your hand with opaque packaging, CompactCath provides users with a more discreet and private experience. It also comes pre-lubricated with a hygiene sheath for comfort, convenience and cleanliness.

Available in a variety of sizes for women, men and children, CompactCath was designed for maximum privacy, hygiene and ease of use, allowing users to lead active, thriving lives.
