NASA's technology reborn for
continence management

NASA invented the first device to measure urinary bladder volume in 1989. Since then, it has become an eminent device as tracking the fullness of the bladder before urination can be a great help to those with bladder issues.

Though, when we examined NASA technology and NASA-based products, we learned one thing – it is not only the bladder volume that needs to be quantified. In order to provide more accurate bladder information, pre-, during, and post-urination bladder activity and related contexts need to be measured and visualized.

 

However, the commercialization of such an invention lagged. Only recently, wearable bladder monitoring devices for end users started to appear in the market, which still lacks accuracy and user experience.

Therefore, Echoscope took a step further to develop a product that can help women, men, adults, and older adults with various types of urinary issues, Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) - urinary issues related to voiding and storage of urine and post-micturition such as leakage, poor urine stream, nocturia and urge.

More than 30 years have passed, but we still lack a universal bladder monitoring device that can enable many lives. Echoscope is here to provide the right tool for people with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) and their clinicians & caregivers.
