What is uroflowmetry?

Uroflowmetry is a medical test that measures the time, volume and flow rate of urine during urination. Doctors commonly use it to diagnose and monitor conditions such as bladder outlet obstruction and other illnesses.
European Association of Urology recommends to perform uroflowmetry in the initial assessment of lower urinary tract symptoms. Strongly prior to medical or invasive treatment.

Why should I have one at home?

There are several reasons why you should have your own uroflowmetry device at home and make your own tests [1][2][3][4]. Did you know the results are even more accurate with home-made uroflowmetry, as they are more real[5].

Benefits of home uroflowmetry with iPeeWell’s device:

  • DIGNITY:
    With our device you will keep your dignity. You will not have to go to the urologist and wait with a painfully full bladder in the waiting room, where acquaintances would ask you about your urological problems. You won’t be called across the hall by a medical technician and then have to urinate on command. You will not be limited by time either. The next patient will not be standing behind you.
  • CONTINUOUS MONITORING:
    Having our uroflowmetry device at home can allow you to continuously monitor your urinary flow rate and volume over time. If you are young and don’t have urinary problems yet, you can compare your voiding stream with others. This way you see when things worsen and it is time to visit an urologist. It can be especially helpful, if you are being treated for conditions such as bladder outlet obstruction or stricture, as it can allow you to track your progress and ensure that your treatment is effective. Continuous monitoring of urinary flow gives you more data than single measurement!
  • COMFORT:
    Uroflowmetry devices are usually used in the doctor’s office. Using a device in a public place can be uncomfortable and may not provide accurate results. By having a device at home you can feel more comfortable and relaxed while undergoing the test, which can lead to more accurate results.
  • HYGIENE:
    Using a uroflowmetry device in the doctor’s office can also raise hygiene concerns. By having your own uroflowmetry device at home, you can properly clean and maintain it, which can help to reduce the risk of infections, irritation, discomfort
  • ACCURACY:
    Using a device in a public place may result in inaccurate measurements and misleading results. By using your own device at home, you can be confident that the results of the test are accurate and reliable[5].
  • CONVENIENCE:
    Having a uroflowmetry device at home can be more convenient, as it can be used in the privacy of one’s own home. This can be especially beneficial for men who may be hesitant to use a device in a public setting or who have mobility issues that make it difficult to travel to a medical facility. Additionally, having a uroflowmetry device at home can allow men to undergo the test at their own convenience, rather than having to schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider. Feel the convenience of home testing!
  • COST-EFFECTIVE:
    Our uroflowmetry devices are an affordable and cost-effective alternative to visiting a healthcare provider for the test. In many cases, you can purchase their own uroflowmetry device and use it at home, rather than paying for the cost of an office visit.
  • TIME SAVING:
    With home uroflowmetry, you can say goodbye to frequent visits to the doctor’s office or urology clinics for urinary health monitoring. By conducting tests in the comfort of your own home, you eliminate the need for travel time, waiting rooms, and scheduling appointments.
  • PREVENTION:
    Early detection is crucial in managing urinary problems and preventing complications. Home uroflowmetry empowers you to monitor your urinary health regularly, facilitating the detection of any abnormalities or changes in urinary flow. By identifying potential issues early on, you can seek appropriate medical attention promptly, potentially preventing more serious conditions.
  • EASE OF USE:
    Home uroflowmetry devices are designed to be user-friendly and straightforward. The devices come with clear instructions, making it easy for individuals of all ages to perform the tests independently. You don’t need to be a medical professional to use these devices effectively.
