How UroShield Works

How UroShield helps

The UroShield is a small, external device that clips onto in-dwelling catheters and produces low-frequency ultrasound Surface Acoustic Waves (SAW).

While you cannot feel or hear these sound waves, the vibration prevents bacteria from being able to stick to the surface, and thus prevents the formation of biofilm.

If there is already biofilm present, then the sound waves can help to break up the layer of the bacteria, allowing antibiotics to take effect and reduce recovery time.

Why choose Uroshield?

There is plenty of evidence to show that UroShield works. Users have reported reduced infection rates, fewer catheter blockages and reduced catheter-related pain, among many other benefits.

Most importantly, UroShield can help you find more freedom in your routines. Listening to the many patients who have benefited from the device, we know ordinary in-dwelling catheters can often feel like a tether to the hospital, forcing you to feel the need to have constant access them in case of an infection.

With UroShield aiding in your catheter care, you don’t always need to worry about visiting the hospital at any moment, letting you plan long trips and holidays that were previously impossible due to no hospital access. The device is easy to store and carry, and its long wire means it can be stored discreetly in your pocket nearly anywhere you go. Quite simply, UroShield when used correctly has the potential to help improve your quality of life.
