The Connected Catheter System is a fully internal, wirelessly controlled medical device specific to the male anatomy. The catheter tip incorporates a magnetic valve-pump, which opens and closes via remote control and enables the bladder to fill naturally. The catheter enables users to empty their bladders comfortably and conveniently without frequent catheterization or external bag attached to the body to collect urine. It maintains its position with the help of anchoring features with no balloon needed.
