Levity, a catheter stabilizer invented by a worried mother

Shared by Carolina Piedade on 2022-05-13 17:04

About the solution

Levi, who is now 4 years old, was born with Spina Bifida. This was something that his mother wasn't at all prepared for. Over these years, Levi had 15 surgeries. which meant that he would have a catheter put in place for the duration of the healing process.

One of the side effects of having a catheter for so long was bladder spasms, which occur when the bladder muscle squeezes suddenly and without warning, causing an urgent need to release urine and also extreme pain.

It was horrifying for his mother, to watch him go through this, over and over again, and when his doctors asked for another surgery, Sarah (his mother) knew that Levi could not handle it anymore.

This is how the Revolutionary Catheter Stabilization device was invented. Their first product, the LECS (Levi External Catheter Stabilizer) provides an easy port to insert a catheter at any moment, preventing stoma stenosis in the event of a potential closing of the stoma. t also is designed to secure and stabilize a nelaton catheter in a stoma and keep the bladder free from foreign objects. Its also slightly raised platform also allows for the stoma to breathe.

This device is FDA approved, and is classified as a type 1 medical device.
