Adapta Medical was founded to improve catheter technology for all users– including me. I’m a C7 quadriplegic with limited finger dexterity who cannot perform intermittent self-catheterization with the current products on the market. I’m also a practicing physician, with many patients who share my limitation and frustration. The design of the PerfIC Cath™ was the result of over 10 years of research and development, along with an enormous amount of user feedback from patients and friends about what they most needed in a product we all depend on daily.
