This free mobile app has a ‘Voiding diary’ and an ‘AUA symptom questionnaire’.

Ostom-i Alert

Ostom-i Alert
developed by James Hutchinson

Cost: The app is free, but the accompanying sensor (without which the app does not function) costs £49.00 / $74.99 / €54.99
Sensor for people who have had an ostomy: keeps the user informed about the contents level of their ostomy bag.
“The winner of the coveted Editor’s Choice award for best new product presented at the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) 2013 Annual National Conference goes to Ostom-i Alert. The Alert is a small sensor clipped to your ostomy pouch that reacts as the pouch fills. It then sends that information directly to your smartphone with a setting you choose personally, such as, “half full, or one third full”. … The totally delightful young inventor, Michael Seres, told me that in England the device has been very useful with non-compliant teenagers who tend to ignore their appliance when it gets too full, thus leading to accidents. I personally imagine using it to alert you if you’re medicated to the point of drowsiness, sleep deeply, or for a loved one with limited communications ability or the beginnings of dementia. The device can also be used in hospitals where medical professionals can safely monitor when your appliance needs emptying.” Broward Ostomy Association (United Ostomy Associations of America, UOAA), Broward Beacon, Fall 2013, p.14 | http://bit.ly/16pp4az
