Case Western Reserve University in the US is developing a neurotechnology device to treat patients suffering from urinary problems due to spasms in the urethral sphincter.

The device sends electrical signals to the nerve responsible for spasms, thus eliminating them and allowing the bladder to empty.

Case Western biomedical engineering associate professor and veterans administration researcher Kenneth Gustafson said that Cleveland-area Conservocare will conduct the pre-clinical testing of the device, and then file for regulatory approval to begin testing in humans.
