Trina Skeele and Sherod Harris, Medical Device Innovation Challenge
Congratulations to Trina Skeele and Sherod Harris whose medical device and service proposal was one of seven selected to participate in the Medical Device Innovation Challenge sponsored by Upstate MIND (Medical Innovation and Novel Discovery Center) at the Central New York Biotech Accelerator (CNYBAC) at Upstate Medical University. See linked article which describes the device.
"Harris Skeele Corp, (also know as Simpler Links), is a medical device startup founded by two nurses with a focus on contributing to the reduction of 'Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections' or CAUTI’s. They have evolved the Foley catheter securement device into one that can track 'Dwell Time.' A Foley catheter is a sterile thin tube used to drain the bladder of urine for a period of time called dwell time. This patent pending device is called 'Safe Dwell GU'. Losing track of Foley catheter dwell time is a major contributor to urinary tract infections in hospitals."
