NanoVibronix Announces Presentation of Positive Independent Testing Results of UroShield at ICS Annual Meeting

Dr. Sandra Wilks to Present Findings from University of Southampton Study in Toronto

NanoVibronix, Inc., (NASDAQ: NAOV), a medical device company that produces the UroShield®, PainShield® and WoundShield® Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Portable Ultrasonic Therapeutic Devices, today announced that Dr. Sandra Wilks is scheduled to present the findings from her study of UroShield® at the International Continence Society (ICS) 2023 Conference in Toronto on Wednesday, September 27.

ICS 2023 is being held September 26-28 in Toronto. For additional information, please visit

The ICS annual conference brings together international experts in the research and treatment of bladder problems, pelvic floor disorders and Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms. It is multidisciplinary and welcomes urologists, gynaecologists, neurourologists, physiotherapists, nurses, midwives and research scientists. All ICS attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the UroShield® device and explore how the device can be introduced to their patients across the globe.

Brian Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of NanoVibronix, Inc., said, "Dr. Wilks’ independent research highlights the critical need for a medical device that improves outcomes for long-term catheter users. Incidences of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) continue to be a major clinical concern. Through this independent study, researchers witnessed positive outcomes from the use of UroShield both in the lab and with patients. Presentation of the study at ICS allows us to increase awareness of UroShield and the proven benefits from its use.”

The Southampton study data indicates that in addition to reducing infection and catheter blockages, UroShield® has the potential for developing a healthy urinary microbiome by use of low frequency ultrasound generated by the UroShield® device, thus avoiding long-term use of antibiotics and the risks associated with such strategies.

The full study, Understanding the Use of the NanoVibronix® UroShield® in Preventing Catheter-Associated Infections and Blockage was published by ScienceDirect and is available at

UroShield generates ultrasonic waves to create an acoustic shield on the surfaces of a catheter to interfere with the attachment of bacteria, prevent bacterial biofilm formation, the development of infections and may eliminate or reduce the need for antibiotics. It is designed to prevent biofilm formation, decrease bacteriuria/UTI, reduce catheter pain and discomfort and increase antibiotic efficacy.
