Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) are a common problem affecting approximately 60% of men over the age of 60. 

Among the main symptoms of patients with Urinary track disorder: painful urination, voiding problem and urine leakage. The common causes of these symptoms are: Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BHP), Bladder Outlet Obstruction (BOO), Lower Urinary Tract symptoms (LUTS), Enlarged Prostate, Bladder cancer ad Bacterial Bladder Infections. Using currently available testing methods, patients need to commute to medical clinics in order to urinate into a urine-flow meter and are required to maintain a written voiding diary. The results serve as a preliminary diagnostic tool for the physicians.

LUTS prevalence among Male/Female > 60y

Urinary incontinence (UI) is any involuntary leakage of urine. Up to 60% of the total population over the age of 60 years is estimated to be incontinent, with women twice as likely as men to experience incontinence. Executing a voiding diary is the first tool for physicians to evaluate patient condition.

Flometrica has identify the need for a disposable, non invasive, portable and home-care device for urinary function diagnosis allowing daily multiple measurements and continue voiding monitoring which will provide representative patient conditions with high accuracy, cost effective, high patient compliance and preserving patient privacy.  A patient with LUTS (Lower urinary tract symptoms) or UI, simply urinates into the cup and the urinary flow is measured and wirelessly transmitted via BT to a smartphone (or recorded automatically on the USB flash drive that connects to the bottom of the cup).

• Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) refers to a group of clinical symptoms involving the bladder, urinary sphincter, urethra and in men prostate.

• LUTS is very common & is present in ~50% of the overall population of over 50-year-olds. In 90-year-olds this is over 80%.


• LUTS is caused by multiple conditions. Benign prostatic obstruction (BPO) and/or overactive bladder (OAB) are two important and prevalent causes of LUTS in male patients , but the range of conditions that can present primarily with LUTS is substantial .
