The goal of the project is to design and develop a urinary catheter that can reliably reduce the incidence of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTIs).


Problem Definition[edit]

Background[edit]

Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections

CAUTIs are the most common type of nosocomial (hospital-related) infection. About 23% of patients in US hospitals require the use of a urinary catheter. The risk of acquiring a CAUTI increases by about 3-7% each day that an indwelling urinary catheter remains inside the patient.

Deliverables[edit]

Design and develop a fully functioning urinary catheter that demonstrates irrigating ability, sufficient drainage, along with various other product specification requirements presented below.
