Study Summary

This study is being done to compare usefulness of data collected in uroflowmetry, a test that measures the amount of urine released from the body, at home versus in the doctor's office. Additionally, investigators are assessing patient satisfaction when completing a virtual visit for lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), related to prostatic enlargement, compared to an in person visit. The three devices being investigated have not been used in the home setting to make urinary measurements as is typically done in clinic. The goal is to test the effectiveness and accuracy of these devices compared to our standard clinical practices and demonstrate their ability to provide useful information in the home setting.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
