I am Anuruddhika Iroshani Jayarathna, working as a Nursing Officer at National Institute of dialysis and Transplantation Unit, Colombo. My Invention “Device with Catheter Tube, External Public Bladder Hanger” is a patented award-winning invention at the Geneva International Exhibition, that is useful for COIVD 19 patients.

Patients with long-term indwelling urinary catheters are difficult to carry and keep catheter bags when they want to move or travel. This uneasy and discomfort to the patents who are no bed reddened are more with depression and anxiety than others. Furthermore, prolong indwelling catheters cause bladder dystonia and patient need to be allowed period of bladder training before the removal Catheter. In addition, it is at a risk for urinary tract infection. Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections are a significant source of morbidity and motility in long-term care facilities.
