A new solution to incontinence: pressure controlled drainage. It was suggested that by improving the design of Foley urinary catheters, we could provide 100% bladder drainage and dramatically reduce rate of infection.
This solution, developed with 3P innovation, embodied a pressure release valve controlled naturally by the patient. As of 2018 the patent on this valve has been published and clinical trials are proceeding within the NHS in the UK. More information can be found in this press article.
