1. General

Minze provides Minze Uroflowmetry, a service intended to help a patient maintain a digital voiding diary and capture his uroflow curves without professional supervision (e.g. at their own home) or with professional supervision (e.g. in a conventional setting at a hospital). Minze Uroflowmetry consists of a measuring device (Minze Uroflowmeter), the Minze Flow Application and the Minze Clinician Portal (each as defined hereinafter and collectively the “Product”). The Minze Flow Application is used to collect data from the Minze Uroflowmeter and from manual input by the User. The Minze Flow Application sends the collected data to the Minze Clinician Portal. The Minze Clinician Portal is a web-based platform, used by the Clinician to process and visualize data coming from the Minze Uroflowmeter and the Minze Flow Application.

The Results (as defined hereinafter) are automatically transferred from the Minze Flow Application to the Minze Clinician Portal. You understand that this automatic transfer is only possible after correctly installing and using the Minze Flow Application. The Clinician will use the Results during diagnosis and treatment and for long-term monitoring for children and adults (female and male) suffering from voiding disorders. You understand that the interpretation of the Results and the follow-up of your physical condition is the sole responsibility of your Clinician.

Please note that the Results (as defined below) do not in any way constitute medical advice and Minze cannot be held liable for any consequences (including any damages) resulting from a misinterpretation of the Results by the User.

The Products shall only be used by Users in the European and other countries where CE certification applies.
