Burns started UroMed for more than 15 years ago to help serve people with needs similar to his own with disposable catheters, urological and continence care medical supplies.  Today, UroMed is one of the leading urological supply companies in the nation.

Yant was the first person with spinal cord injury to start a retail company in the urological supply industry, and also the first person with SCI to start a manufacturing company for these products.

We’re thrilled with this article, not just because it features Bert and Bob, but also because it shares the vision of both UroMed and Cure Medical, along with our hopes of creating a better community for the people we serve nationwide.

Many of UroMed’s employees have a personal connection to understanding their customers’ urinary health and incontinence needs, as 20% of UroMed’s customer care associates either has a disability or has a family member with a disabling condition.  Most of UroMed’s customers experience urological or incontinence issues, and have conditions like Spinal Cord Injury, Spina Bifida, Transverse Myelitis or Multiple Sclerosis.
