MEDIPLUS is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the UK’s most prestigious business accolade, for its pioneering catheter insertion kit dubbed “a GPS for the bladder.” The High Wycombe healthcare manufacturer was presented with the award, under the Innovation category for its S-Cath™ System; a breakthrough technology that prevents injuries from occurring. The S-Cath™ System uses the Seldinger technique to facilitate a one tract entry into the bladder enabling clinicians to perform a safer introduction of a suprapubic catheter. The innovative device, which was designed hand in hand with clinicians, oers a more controlled, accurate and precise placement into the bladder. Currently, a suprapubic catheterisation is performed in an operating theatre under general anaesthetic with clinicians using a “blind” percutaneous trocar puncture to gain entry into the bladder. Instead the S-Cath™ System locates the bladder with a patented safety guide wire, improving placement and guarantees insertion of the trocar along the anesthetised track. This technique also oers a wide range of patient benets such as minimal trauma and tissue damage as less pressure is needed to insert the dilator. It
Speaking about the award Emma Gray, Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to win such a prestigious award for our contribution to urology. The S Cath™ System is a breakthrough solution that reduces the risk of harm to patients, while simultaneously raising the standard of patient care and safety. “Many clinicians say it oers them greater condence in inserting the trocar into the bladder describing it as a GPS for the bladder. It also oers UK hospitals huge savings in terms of money, time and resources.” The S-Cath™ System has been

is also more comfortable and less stressful for the clinician to perform, as it provides themwith a higher degree of control and accurate placement. For patients, it means they only need to attend a 30-minute appointment slot in clinic, reducing treatment time from 2.3 days to 22 minutes. It also decreases the risks associated with standard “blind” entry methods which have 19%* risk of complications and 1.9% risk of mortality in the UK alone.
