CATHETRIX (Tel-Aviv, Israel), an innovative developer of urinary (Foley) smart catheter fixation devices, is commercially launching its catheter stabilizer for the prevention of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and accidental Foley catheter extractions at Arab Health 2023, which is taking place January 30–February 2, 2023, in Dubai, UAE. Foley/Safe is the first stabilizing and securing device that protects from accidental urinary catheter extraction by severing the catheter, deflate the retention balloon, and preventing damage to the bladder and urethra.

At Arab Health 2023, CATETRIX is presenting an upgraded version of its Foley/Safe, which includes three protective layers. The first protective layer is Fixation – an adhesive patch that secures the catheter in place and prevents minor catheter movements from being transferred to the urinary system. The second is Anti-slide smart mechanism – this detects and absorbs minor catheter movements and prevents the catheter from being pulled. The anti-slide patch can last 14 days without replacement, lowering the risk of catheter-associated UTI. The third protective layer is Disconnection – When the pulling force is significant and dramatic, the advanced cutting mechanism is engaged smoothly in severing the catheter. As a result, the catheter retention balloon deflates enabling safe and easy removal.

These mechanisms prevent outside elements from being transferred to the urinary system and are exclusive to Foley/Safe 2.0. The Foley/Safe 2.0 device has been adjusted to the requirements of the medical system and is favored by surgeons and nurses in the fields of urology, geriatrics, orthopedics, and gynecology. Foley/Safe 2.0 safely prevents surgery and expensive hospitalization. CATHETRIX is also developing a new advanced stabilizer for nephrostomy tubes.

"The Arab Health show provides us with an excellent opportunity to commercially launch the world's most stable Foley catheter," said Tal Hadass, CMO at CATHETRIX. "The highly developed healthcare system of the Arab Gulf can benefit from using the innovative Foley/Safe 2.0 to improve patient's wellbeing while benefiting from additional protection layers."
