Abstract: A fundamental problem in men’s health is that large groups of men shy away from visiting the doctor, and specifically, often do not take part in early screening tests if they do not have complaints yet. This is particularly evident in the sensitive field of urology. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is one of the most widespread disorders in ageing men and is associated with an increasing burden on healthcare systems. It is often underdiagnosed and undertreated and has a substantial impact on the patients’ quality of life. An altered urine flow curve can be a first clue to BPH. A new developed, easy-to-use prostate self-testing device based on a Swiss high-precision flowmeter enables men to check their urine flow at home in familiar surroundings. Via a Bluetooth connection, the results can be transmitted wirelessly and stored in a digital diary so that long-term developments can be tracked. The self-testing device not only provides men with the opportunity to deal with their health with low effort and in a discreet way, but also gives them certainty about their prostate health status.
