Abstract: Urodynamic assessment is important to evaluate bladder outlet obstruction (BOO), but the procedure is invasive, expensive and time-consuming, and is not free of complications (e. g. macroscopic hematuria, fever). In a previous work, we reported a new method developed for measuring vesical static pressure during urodynamic exams by using a device named urethral connector (UC). Clinical tests indicated that the new method is comparable to the conventional standard procedure with clear advantages. In this work, we describe improvements made on the UC, which confer greater autonomy and portability to the whole measurement system. We also report the results of clinical tests.
