Compact flowmeter designed for practical, everyday studies.

Flowstar

- Overview

The Flowstar is a compact and digital flowmeter designed for practical, everyday uroflowmetry when ease of use, precision and low cost are top priorities.

When using the Flowstar, recording starts automatically when the patient starts voiding. The flow and volume scales can be adjusted and the pre-flow and post-flow time are user selectable. Siroky flow plots can be printed to diagnose normal or obstructed urinary flow in male patients.

The digital weight sensor can be mounted on a height-adjustable uroflow stand and/or placed under a micturition chair. The lightweight thermal printer is connected by cable and can be up to 10 meters (32ft) away from the uroflow sensor.

Measurement and Analysis:

  • Uroflowmetry
  • Siroky flow rate nomograms

+ Clinical Information

Urodynamics and Uroflowmetry

Uroflowmetry

Uroflowmetry is a diagnostic screening procedure that measures the volume of urine released from the body, the speed with which it is released, and how long the release takes.

Uroflowmetry is performed by urinating into a special urinal, toilet, or disposable device that has a measuring device built in. When you finish, the machine will make a report for your healthcare provider.

The test involves normal urination, so you should not experience any discomfort. This test is useful in evaluating the function of the urinary tract.

LABORIE is passionate about bringing freedom and dignity to patients suffering from pelvic floor disorders through innovation in diagnostic and treatment options. We work with leading clinician-researchers and local universities to incorporate the most recent advancements and technical knowledge into our products while reflecting practical realities of the typical pelvic floor clinic.
