In 1994, I was injured in a motocross accident that left me paralyzed from the chest down. In an instant, my whole world changed forever. Once I left the rehabilitation facility and transitioned back to living at home, I faced all kinds of new challenges and problems I’d never encountered before. As some of you may know, adjusting to the reality of life in a wheelchair is extremely difficult. And, as if adjusting to new life wasn’t hard enough, dealing with constant urinary tract infections that first year was almost too much to handle.
Fortunately, I met some good friends, also in chairs, who opened my eyes to a universe of products like closed system catheter kits, which are specifically aimed at reducing the occurrence of UTIs. When I started using these products, my body was no longer fatigued all the time from fighting infection; I didn’t have to clean and reuse my catheters; and I regained a lot of independence and confidence. I felt like my life had been turned around! Not long after that, I decided to create a company with the sole purpose of getting these products to other people in similar situations so their lives could be turned around too.
