CaMiCon Study reveals the benefits of an automated bladder diary versus a traditional pen-and-paper method.

The CaMiCon study in OAB patients has revealed that 84% prefer the use of an automated bladder diary solution, compared to the traditional pen-and-paper method. 42% of participants has not registered urgency or leakage episodes in the paper bladder diary, compared to only 3% with the automated solution.

The CaMiCon study demonstrated that the Minze Diary Pod® is a reliable and innovative tool for bladder diaries. It simplifies data collection for the majority of patients (83%) and, by enhancing patient compliance, could yield higher-quality data, facilitating interpretation by the physician. These factors promote the adoption of the connected voiding diary as a diagnostic tool. Additionally 84% prefer the use of an automated bladder diary solution, compared to the traditional pen-and-paper method and it can be employed for assessing treatment effectiveness in both daily clinical practice and research.

In this post, we have summarised the key takeaways of the CaMiCon webinar. (Recording of the webinar at the bottom of this page.)

CaMiCon Study details

The study was conducted at the European Hospital Georges Pompidou in Paris by Dr. Hurel, Dr. Aleméda and the team of Prof. Dr. Mejean from April 2022 to January 2023. 

Starting point: bladder diaries are crucial in the diagnosis and follow-up of treatment of patients with an Overactive Bladder (OAB). However, the majority of bladder diaries are not filled out correctly.

Goal: evaluate the completeness and patient acceptance of an automated bladder diary solution (Minze Diary Pod) and compare it to the current paper-based method.
