New implant monitors bladder filling in real time

Researchers at Northwestern University (USA) have developed a flexible, battery-free implant that monitors bladder filling in real time. The device is attached directly to the bladder wall and transmits the data wirelessly to a smartphone app. The technology is suitable for people with paralysis, spina bifida, bladder cancer or other bladder diseases and helps them to better control and empty their bladder.

Further information on the implant and the study can be found in the article Real-time bladder fullness: new technology for bladder dysfunction.
