    Benign Prostate Hyperplasia Void addresses crucial issues regarding noways use of urinary catheters in treating BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia). BPH is a noncancerous increase in size of the prostate which is responsible for urinary infections, sexual dysfunction and acute urinary retention. The patients suffer of significant disruption of everyday life, frequent walking at night, fatigue and depressive moods. How does it work? Void offers an non invasive solution which is designed to restore patient’s dignity and offer the possibility of a normal life. The solution is based on a stent which is introduced in the prostate area. The stent is equipped with an electro magnetic valve which can be controlled from outside, by activating the wrist device. This way, the patient can be in full control of the voiding process. Risks are minimal through constant monitoring Considering the importance of health signs, the stent is equipped with a nano-sensor strip which communicates values directly to the patient’s file. Also, some less complicated values are shown to the patient as recommendations.
