CompactCath is a multidisciplinary team committed
to improving the lives of individuals with urinary incontinence.
Our multidisciplinary team of physicians, engineers, and MBAs was founded at Stanford d.school’s Design for Service Innovation course in March 2011. We saw a need to innovate upon current catheters in the market, so we applied design thinking methodologies and worked with dozens of physicians, nurses and patients to develop CompactCath. Today, after much work, we have acquired FDA approval and are finally ready to bring CompactCath to market!

WHO WE ARE
CompactCath was developed by a multidisciplinary team of physicians, engineers, and MBAs with shared commitment to improve the quality of life of those who need to self-catheterize. We've presented at the Aspen Ideas Festival, obtained patents, completed product development and receives 510(k) Clearance!
Moreover, we are also one of the StartX alumni represent some of Stanford's best entrepreneurs, in fields from clean tech and bio tech to consumer internet and enterprise software.
Our goal is to design medical devices that fit seamlessly into your life. Thanks to modern medicine, people with chronic conditions who used to be tied to hospital settings are now managing their conditions at home, leading active, independent lives. However, many of the medical devices they use at home have been designed for the hospital, and often come in the way of everyday activities.
We believe that medical devices used daily by those with chronic conditions should be designed to enable active, thriving, independent lives. We envision a world where people will no longer have to fear or fight with their medical devices, so that they can spend their time and energy on the things that really matter in life.
