Episode Eight | Say Goodbye to UTIs With Aurie’s No-Touch, Reusable Catheter System

Planning each day around going to the bathroom can make it difficult to do everything you want in life, and reusing a typical intermittent catheter can put you at high risk for potentially deadly urinary tract infections. For stroke survivors, people with spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and other conditions, intermittent catheterization is the most common way to empty their bladders. 

In the first part of this episode, you’ll meet Souvik Paul, CEO and Founder of Aurie, a startup company in our 2023 Remarkable US Accelerator Program. Aurie is working to improve the health, freedom, and quality of life for the millions of people around the world who use intermittent catheters by developing a new no-touch, reusable catheter system. Our second guest, Carina Ho, sustained a spinal cord injury and inspired Souvik to start Aurie. She shares her story and personal perspective.
