Manfred Sauer was born in 1944 and has had tetraplegia since 1963 after a diving accident here in the UK. He underwent his rehabilitation at Stoke Mandeville Spinal Unit in the days of its founder Sir Ludwig Guttmann. Following his accident, he noticed a real gap in continence management and a lack of options available. As a result, in 1965, he began to develop and market condom urinals or urinary sheaths.
In 1976 he launched Manfred Sauer GmbH, now a firmly established business enjoying a large share in the rehabilitation marketplace for continence systems in Europe and an ever-growing market share in mainstream continence management in the UK.
More recently Manfred has realised his dream in the shape of a charitable Foundation. This was developed to help people and their families, with both physical and psychological rehabilitation following traumatic accident or illness, such as spinal cord injury.
