Visu / Domestic bladder scanner


Visu is a domestic bladder scanner designed for patients diagnosed with urinary retention. This medical device allows for greater data input, hence for more accurate diagnostics and treatment of the symptoms. Furthermore it provides the patient with information on his or her status of their bladder.
As doctors today rely on the lack of quantitative data from bladder scanners in the hospital Visu is an attempt to bring the bladder scanner to the home providing both patient and doctors with further knowledge of the patients health.
