Accuryn is a critical care monitoring system that transforms the traditional urinary catheter into a next-generation diagnostic tool. Accuryn uses proprietary electromechanical designs and advanced software algorithms to deliver automated, real-time actionable data including urine output, core body temperature and intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). The IAP measurement is taken directly from the catheter tip with just a push of a button, helping to reduce setup time, potential errors, and infection risk. Additionally, innovative active drain line clearance can overcome urine drainage issues that may make urine output measurements unreliable.
The Accuryn System is a 510(k) cleared medical device available for sale in the United States.
