Project Abstract

DigUro (Digital Urometer)

The Project: 

Patient vitals, such as blood pressure and heart rate, are constantly being digitally measured and monitored for nurses to record. However, urine output -- one of the most critical gauges of patient recovery -- is recorded manually and proves an error-prone, non-urgent task for nurses. How can we transform the manual, tedious, critical process into something that is automatic, easy to use, and accurate?

The Problem:

Our goal is to build a digital meter that measures the urine output for patients in the ICU and recovery. For our solution, it must be immediately implementable in the hospital. In other words, the product must work with the current catheter equipment and be reusable, disposable, portable, and accurate.

The Solution:
