Jason Van Batavia, MD, of CHOP is creating a home device for pediatric patients and their families to keep track of urinary flow rates and patterns.

Kite Medical of Galway, Ireland, is developing a device to detect vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in children.

Global Continence, Inc. of Atlanta, GA is creating a bedwetting mitigation device. Nocturnal enuresis, or bedwetting, affects 200 million children globally and can impact a child’s self-esteem and behavior. The device will sense moisture and immediately activate a painless neuromodulation system to prevent bedwetting and alert the child and/or parents. The device, the first of its kind, can be used in children of all ages and is expected to prevent the need for long-term treatment of bedwetting.
