Abstract: A prevalent difficulty in urodynamics studies employing ultrasonography is associated with the manual application of the imaging transducer to the perineum. We have developed an electromechanically operated device for remote positioning of an ultra-sound probe during voiding studies of the lower urinary tract. The mechanical arm holds the probe inside a funnel that is mounted underneath a modified portable commode on which the patient is seated. External manually operated mechanical slides are used to translat…
