Detailed Description:

This study is aimed at assessing the effectiveness of the NanoVibronix™ UroShield™ System in comparison to Urinary catheter alone in patients requiring urinary catheterization.

  1. Primary objectives

    • To observe the effect of UroShield in reduction of patient's complaints relating to indwelling Urinary Catheters

      • Pain
      • Discomfort
    • To observe the effect of UroShield in the reduction/prevention of Biofilm
    • To observe the effect of UroShield on the occurrence of bacteriuria and/or UTI's on patients with Indwelling Urinary Catheters
  2. Safety Objective To assess the safety parameters of the UroShield system
  3. Secondary Objectives

    • To observe the effect of UroShield in reduction of Foley Catheter related pain medication in patients with Indwelling Urinary Catheters
    • To observe the effect of UroShield in reduction of antibiotic medication in patients with Indwelling Urinary Catheter
    • To observe the effect of UroShield on the clogging of Urinary Catheter when used chronically and the need to replace the catheter
    • To observe the effect of UroShield on the decrease of Tissue damage of patients with Indwelling Urinary Catheters by measuring cell count before and after removal of catheter
