Female Urinary Catheter Alternative

The Tibbe

Prioritizing Women's Health and Wellness




Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are the most commonly acquired infection in a hospital setting and are often the result of indwelling catheters. Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTIs) result in an estimated 13,000 deaths annually, as well as an increased length of stay by 2-4 days and $400-500 million in additional costs per year nationally. 

The Tibbe was developed as a solution to reduce or eliminate indwelling catheters for the female patient population. The idea for the device was conceptualized by Mary Tibbe, CN Specialist from Corewell Hospital.

At SBE Medical, our goal is to provide women with a hygienic, clean, and external alternative to traditional catheters, minimizing the risk of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) and promoting their health and comfort.

The Tibbe device is a completely external urinary collection device. It is a two-piece design with a ring and cup that interlock but can be separated for cleaning and perineal care. The ring adheres to the patient via a skin-friendly medical adhesive used in wound care products. The cup can connect to a port and tubing that can lead to a Foley collection bag or leg bag. This unique design with multiple options for application expands the usability and comfort of the device.
