The UroShield System developed by NanoVibronix is a small external medical device that has been developed to prevent bacterial biofilm formation on both urethral and suprapubic catheters by means of the low frequency/low intensity ultrasonic waves that it generates. The action of the ultrasonic waves on the surfaces of the catheter interfere with the attachment of bacteria, prevent infections developing, reduce catheter encrustation and blockages and decrease or eliminate the need for antibiotics. In addition, UroShield decreases the pain, discomfort and spasm associated with indwelling urinary catheters. All these characteristics make UroShield a breakthrough device to prevent or treat catheter related injury.

The UroShield is the first ever multi-targeting ultrasound catheter solution to remediate catheter related complications. Extending its range through two active stabilization patches, the clip-on UroShield can be attached to all eternal urinary tract catheters providing spasm relief, catheter pain reduction, and effectively turning any catheter into a therapeutic device that alleviates spasms and provides catheter pain relief as well as decreasing biofilm which in turn decreases catheter related infections.
STANDARD UROSHIELD FOR INDWELLING URINARY CATHETERS; UroShield is the first medical device on the market that is intended to prevent bacterial biofilm, increase antibiotic efficacy and decrease pain and discomfort associated with urinary catheter use. It can be used with any type of indwelling urinary catheter regardless of the material or coating. The UroShield consists of a disposable UroShield clip-on element that is placed onto the external portion of the Foley catheter in addition to a driver unit, to which the disposable patch connects. This Foley catheter ultrasound device is clinically proven to be effective and efficient.
The UroShield family of products also includes the Z-Shield, an active stabilization patch for Percutaneous Nephrostomy catheters. The Z-Shield applies low frequency ultrasound to the catheter to treat pain, prevent bioﬁlm and maintain prolonged catheter patency.
UroShield has been shown to be safe in clinical trials and has been shown to prevent urinary catheter related injury. UroShield has received CE Mark and is used in clinical trials in Germany* and Israel.
Modifications of UroShield have been made enabling placement on the entire spectrum of indwelling urinary catheters including supra-pubic cystostomy and percutaneous nephrostomy catheters. These two devices consist of the ultrasound transducer embodied in an adhesive stabilization patch, especially designed to fit the anatomy of each site.
The clip-on UroShield can be attached to all external urinary tract catheters providing spasm relief, catheter pain reduction and turning the catheter into an active therapeutic device.
