Elaros is pleased to kick-off an Innovate UK project today to further the development of our innovative Digital Bladder Diary; a hand-held device designed to help the growing number of men and women in the UK that suffer from bladder problems.
This project will place the bladder diary in specialist continence clinics and GP practices to compare the use of the diary with current practice, paper-based diaries. ‘Real-world’ data will be collected which will help to fully evaluate the clinical and health economic impact of the diary.
This funding will enable Elaros and its partners to carry out the work that will enable the final adoption of the diary into clinical practice, which will reduce the unnecessary, inappropriate and very costly referrals to hospitals from GPs. The diary is registered as a Class 1 medical device and has been evaluated by NICE.
We are looking forward to working with our partners, Glasgow Caledonian University and the York Health Economic Forum on the project over the coming year.
