This product makes it possible to continuously monitor urination schedules in patients who have lost the urge to urinate. It is anticipated that this will alleviate the need for daily, lifestyle-restricting indwelling bladder (“Foley”) catheters and the anxiety of incontinence.
Problems with urination independence and control are known to determine the ability of patients to return home from the hospital, and impose a heavy burden on nursing and caregiving services. Lilium α-200 is expected to greatly contribute to the improvement of patient quality of life, and to reduce labor and improve the efficacy of those engaged in nursing and caregiving. Further, Lilium Otsuka expects to make a significant contribution to holistic treatments which impact the dignity of patients.
“For patients with loss of urge or urinary difficulty, the beauty of this product lies in its ability to accurately monitor the size of the bladder (a measure of volume of urine retained in the bladder) and the ability to schedule bathroom trips or self-catheterization.” said Dr. Osamu Yokoyama M.D., Ph.D., president of the Japanese Continence Society and professor on the Faculty of Medical Sciences, the University of Fukui, “As the Japanese Continence Society initiates a certified physician system next year to begin training doctors who can professionally manage continence care, this device is thought to provide a good method to support discharge of patients to their homes.”
