Systems for and Methods of Assessing Lower Urinary Tract Function Via Sound Analysis
Systems for and methods of assessing lower urinary tract function from urinary flow data via sound analysis and user-provided information regarding the lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) of frequency, urgency and urge incontinence. Embodiments of the LUTS assessment systems include a computer and a telephone or a digital recording mechanism to capture the sound of one or more urination events, which are stored as audio files in a database. The LUTS assessment systems may include sound analysis software for analyzing the strength and duration of each urination event and may include a web-based software application for viewing the results via the Internet or other network. The database stores information from multiple urination events, and combined with information regarding the lower urinary tract symptoms, serves as an objective tool to assess bladder function and monitor progression of disease or therapy effectiveness.
