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.
Understanding the course of your Prostate Problem is complex, there are several factors and test results which combine together to present an opinion of your status and probable future course.
You can choose a Setting to see the AI interpretation of your recordings. The app measures the duration and maximum flow, and makes simple calculations about whether the shape is normal or slow. It is useful to compare from one tracing to the next
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 ask for your email to gather your records together. But since we do not write to you, or really care who you are, we do not need your email, much less your name. We “hash” your email to make an identifier that cannot 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.
Demo feature. This allows you to see how the app works without moving from your desk! If you press Demo and acknowledge that it will make a noise, it plays a recorded urination and of course records it at the same time, just like a real urination. This will show as a chart and you can get an idea how the app works. Then try it in the toilet! Don't drop your phone in the toilet.
