A portion of all catheter proceeds at 180 Medical goes toward the Reeve Foundation. Based on the growth of our company, our annual donation could increase as much as 250%!
Todd Brown and His Experience with a Spinal Cord Injury
When 180 Medical Founder Todd Brown became paralyzed from the T-7 vertebrae down as a result of a Motocross accident, he soon learned that adjusting to the reality of life in a wheelchair was extremely difficult.
In addition, Todd dealt with recurrent urinary tract infections. Plus, the medical supply companies he dealt with weren’t knowledgeable about spinal cord injuries or their products.
“Fortunately for me, some friends who were also in chairs were aware of my issues and opened my eyes to a universe of catheter products out there specifically aimed at reducing the occurrence of UTIs. Finally, I decided to create 180 Medical. I wanted to help people in similar situations,” said Brown.
Today, 180 Medical works to provide education, great service, and quality catheter and ostomy supplies. This mission is consistent with the Reeve Foundation and its outstanding work in research and support.
