About the solution

With the help of some friends, Mike developed Uri-Go – a sensor that connects to a smartphone app that lets the user knows when you need to go.

The sensor his used near the skin, on the underwear area, above the pubic bone. It bounces a radio signal and sends the data to a smartphone, notifying the user about the bladder status.

“Millions of people worldwide are unable to sense the fullness of their bladder or control the voiding process. Beyond the personal anxiety, this causes, there are also significant social, financial and medical consequences. ​Uri-Go is a slim, discreet, lightweight wearable device that gives users the certainty of knowing when to go”, it says on the official website.

Mike launched his own company and has already won three awards. He is also working on a bicycle for disabled people.

About the author

Mike Brown, from New Zeland, broke his back and, as a result, he could no longer feel when his bladder was full. So he created Uri-Go, a wearable to help him know when his bladder is full.
