Genesis Plastics Welding, a leading medical device contract manufacturer of radio frequency (RF) welded products, has announced a manufacturing agreement with Future Path Medical Holding Company LLC, a medical device company, to produce the company’s breakthrough iBag™ urine management bag, a part of the FDA-cleared iBag Systems.
The iBag System combines a disposable, sensor-enabled urine collection bag with software, wireless communications and an optional thermistor-equipped foley catheter, to provide effective and constant urine monitoring and continual and accurate core body temperature readings. The display and alarms enable caregivers and patients to reduce urine spills and urine backup, in addition to providing core body temperature data, helpful in making decisions on care options. The iBag increases both patient and caregiver confidence and independence.
Genesis’ proprietary heat sealing technology allows RF plastics welding of polyethylene, polypropylene and nearly any low-loss polymer in film, foam and fabric layers. The company’s plastics welding technology, ecoGenesis™, also aids in cost reduction as it eliminates the need for expensive heat seal additives and enables the substitution of lower cost raw materials. Available for private licensing to manufacturers, ecoGenesis can be quickly integrated into any existing RF heat sealing machine.
