Pilot study of a home use cystomanometer in patients with a neurogenic bladder

      Summary

      Introduction

      A novel device, the cystomanometer, was developed for home bladder pressure monitoring in patients with neurogenic bladder.

      Objective

      To report initial experience and proof of concept with home use of the cystomanometer.

      Study design

      Patients were asked to use the device twice daily for two weeks.

      Results

      Fourteen patients with neurogenic bladder were enrolled.

      Discussion

      The cystomanometer initially functioned well and transmitted data to a smartphone and to the hospital server. However, over 50% of devices broke.

      Conclusions

      We report the first home use of a handheld electronic cystomanometer with wireless data transmission to a smartphone and hospital database.
