Older men often have Prostate Enlargement, BPH, which makes for a weak urine stream and getting up at night to urinate.
This app provides a way for you to monitor yourself at Home. You can send the results to your doctor by email.
The central problem for men with this problem, about half of all older men, is “Is it getting worse?” and of course “Should I do something about it?”.
The iPhone technology is to listen to the urine stream hitting the water in the toilet (or measuring cup) and to process this sound into a tracing showing flow rate. You will quickly recognize the tracing from a “good” pee and from a “slow “ one. If you monitor yourself for three days every six months, the change in that time is clearly visible. What you do about it is up to you.
In addition to this objective measurement, there is the “Prostate Symptom Score” a standard questionnaire for older men. The IPSS is built into the app and if you fill it out every six months, you, and your doctor, can follow the changes in the tracings with the changes in your symptoms over the last months and years.
Some men are asked to keep a diary of their drinks, obviously the other side of urination. We offer a simple way to keep these data. One click!
It is easy to send your data to a doctor. Press “telemedicine” button and fill in the doctor’s email. You will need to identify yourself to him, because the link he gets does not have any id-information.
The app makes no claims about accuracy, try it and see what you think. The app is free to download and use.
To use “Uroflow Trace”: Set the phone down with the mic pointing towards the toilet. Press Start. Press Stop when you're finished.
Swipe the graph to see other tracings.
We do not need your email, much less your name. We just do not have an identifier that can be traced to you. From our website nobody can find out who you are, not me, not anyone. There has been too much nosiness about medical records, this approach keeps the readings in clear, but nobody can discover who they belong to, no one!
