PSM is a medical device startup with the goal of solving problems for patients in novel and innovative ways. PSM's first product, an improved urinary catheter, is currently patent pending.
The PSM catheter is an indwelling urinary catheter with the potential to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). It uses a proprietary added functionality that is designed to reduce bacterial growth. This catheter also adds a high value for providers as it can be used for targeted therapeutic delivery to the urinary tract. This would give physicians a new treatment modality to improve patient outcome.
We have received tremendous feedback from the medical, medical device, and startup communities. With the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services now instituting a reimbursement penalty for Hospital Acquired Infections, there is a vast need for this technology.
