From the very beginning of our technology development, we aimed to create a device that would not only change patients’ lives for the better but would also be environmentally friendly. For this reason, URIS® is not only made from recycled (90%) and recyclable (30%) materials. More importantly, the effectiveness of out treatment helps to reduce waste associated with a current treatment of urinary incontinence being a symptom of an overactive bladder.

Affordable treatment without unnecessary waste

The URIS® device is designed to be shared and re-used amongst patients unlike the disposable products currently in use. In addition, we have also designed a unique logistics and refurbishment process to maintain the quality of our products for as long as possible.

Saving drinking water

Patients with an overactive bladder have a frequent urge to urinate. On average, they visit the toilet up to 12 times a day. That is 12 flushes and about 120 liters of water (or 24 liters in the case of small flushing). The URIS® device has been shown to reduce the number of micturition by 27% which saves water wasted on flushing.

Less hazardous (toxic) waste

In the Czech Republic alone, there are 533,000 patients suffering from incontinence caused by overactive bladder. Their daily consumption of incontinence adult diapers is around 2, so up to 400 million of diapers are used per year. Yet, according to our clinical studies, a 30-minute stimulation with our URIS® device would be enough to bring the urge to urinate to such a level that diapers are largely no longer needed.

Water without pharmacological residues

Drugs in our bodies undergo structural changes that lead to a formation of metabolites. These are then excreted out of our bodies and enter soil, sewage, surface water, groundwater and even drinking water in nano quantities. Treatment with the URIS® device eliminates this problem, as no harmful metabolites are produced when using it. Patient waste is natural in origin and easily degradable.
