Minze Health develops Wireless Uroflowmetry Devices

The rate of flow of urine is a key indicator of urological health problems as conditions such as bladder cancer, prostate enlargement, bladder dysfunction, and others affect the urine flow. Conventional urine flow tests require patients to urinate into funnels or special toilets as they would normally which is not psychologically possible for many patients. Medical device startups are therefore developing wireless flow measurement solutions to enable more patient-friendly testing while improving the quality of the generated data.

Belgian startup Minze Health develops a waterproof, portable, and wireless device that can be placed on any toilet to collect uroflowmetry data. The device is designed to replace the need for special toilets or funnels to conduct urine flow tests, making it easier for patients to provide more natural and accurate flow readings. The device uses Bluetooth to transmit the data to a portal for doctors to conduct comparative and in-depth flow analysis. The portal exports flowmetry data for the addition to patient’s electronic health records (EHRs).

Luca Biologics provides a Biotherapeutics Discovery Platform

The balance and stability of microbiomes play a vital role in maintaining the functions of the human body. A significant proportion of women globally suffer from urinary tract infections (UTI) or bacterial vaginosis often stemming from STIs and sometimes leading to infertility, preterm births, and other complications. That is why medical health startups are creating solutions to specifically target microbiomes for urogenital and reproductive health.

US-based startup Luca Biologics develops the proprietary platform LUCA that aids in the discovery and development of live biotherapeutics. The platform is designed to create therapeutic solutions that modulate the ecosystems of vaginal microbiomes to enhance their protection, restoration, and sustaining capabilities.

Nucleobio develops non-invasive Prostate Cancer Screening Solutions

Prostate cancer is among the most commonly occurring cancer in men. Moreover, prostate cancer is one of the leading cancers globally with a high rate of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests resulting in cancer diagnoses every day. But because current PSA tests are not fully accurate and sometimes result in a false negative or false positive, patients still need to undergo expensive and painful biopsies. This is why more advanced and accurate screening tests for prostate cancer detection are currently being developed.

US-American startup Nucleobio creates a urine-based test for the detection of prostate cancer. The test accurately tells healthcare professionals if a tumor is benign or malignant. This reduces the requirement of further screening and biopsies which not only saves time for treatment but also significantly reduces the cost of treatment.

RenalTracker provides an Education App for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Patients

According to the National Kidney Foundation, approximately 10% of the global population suffers from Chronic Kidney Disease. Some CKD patients experience a gradual decline in the function of their kidneys until the point of organ failure. Since this is usually a slow decline, it gives patients the required time to seek expert consultation and receive tailored treatment. To this end, startups develop solutions to educate patients in the management and treatment of CKD.

Netherlands-based startup RenalTracker creates an app that assists users in slowing down or halting the progression of CKD. The app achieves this through the use of nutritional interventions by providing personalized coaching to formulate diets and lifestyle changes. The objective of their provided 12 weeks educational and nutritional program is to delay the need for dialysis.

Kite Medical develops Diagnostics Techniques for Kidney Reflux

Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a disease which if treated quickly and appropriately is benign but can have severe consequences if left untreated. As the most affected demographic are babies and young children, early diagnosis and treatment are essential to avoid potential lifelong negative effects. However, current methods of diagnosis pose an equal amount of risk due to the use of invasive producers and radiation exposure.

Irish startup Kite Medical is a specialist in the detection of kidney reflux in children. The startup’s system uses electrical impedance tomography to identify changes in conductivity in the children’s ureters and kidneys. The solution is non-invasive, uses no radiation, and is designed to be child-friendly. Moreover, the system is cost-effective, trauma-free, and continues to monitor children after VUR is diagnosed.
