This product makes it possible to continuously monitor urination schedules in patients who have lost the urge to urinate. It is anticipated that this will alleviate the need for daily, lifestyle-restricting indwelling bladder (“Foley”) catheters and the anxiety of incontinence.
Problems with urination independence and control are known to determine the ability of patients to return home from the hospital, and impose a heavy burden on nursing and caregiving services. Lilium α-200 is expected to greatly contribute to the improvement of patient quality of life, and to reduce labor and improve the efficacy of those engaged in nursing and caregiving. Further, Lilium Otsuka expects to make a significant contribution to holistic treatments which impact the dignity of patients.
“For patients with loss of urge or urinary difficulty, the beauty of this product lies in its ability to accurately monitor the size of the bladder (a measure of volume of urine retained in the bladder) and the ability to schedule bathroom trips or self-catheterization.” said Dr. Osamu Yokoyama M.D., Ph.D., president of the Japanese Continence Society and professor on the Faculty of Medical Sciences, the University of Fukui, “As the Japanese Continence Society initiates a certified physician system next year to begin training doctors who can professionally manage continence care, this device is thought to provide a good method to support discharge of patients to their homes.”

Lilium Otsuka is a subsidiary company of Otsuka Holdings Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:4578) established in Kanagawa, Japan. It is dedicated to standardizing the practice of measuring urinary volume as a “fifth vital sign” through developing innovative bladder health products.

IntegenX Inc., the global market leader for Rapid DNA human identification, applauds the signing into law of S.139 and HR.510, The Rapid DNA Act of 2017. The legislation will allow law enforcement agencies, under standards and guidelines established by the FBI, to perform real-time DNA testing at time of arrest, within booking stations. Similar to how fingerprint analysis has evolved from a paper and ink practice to a point-of-action technology, DNA testing has now become possible in 90 minutes within a booking station, while a suspect is still in custody. With processing times reduced from weeks to less than two hours, the potential to identify or exonerate a suspect quickly will make a meaningful impact on law enforcement. IntegenX thanks U.S. Senate sponsor Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and lead co-sponsor Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) as well as House sponsor Congressman
