Welcome to my homepage of my YouTube channel GreenEyedExplorer where I explore further and beyond about tweaks, hacks, electronics, house repairs and urology. Text for the video:

Hi. In the previous video of this two-part series I showed how to make a uroflowmetry device for yourself. If you haven’t seen the video, find it on my channel. In this video I will show you how to use the web interface, how to calibrate the machine and how to use dedicated windows program. Coming up!

Hi. We will start by entering device address into web browser. Uroflow will ask for the user name and password. By default they are both “admin”. Click Log in. You enter them at first connection. The main site opens. Here is the medical report for free uroflow version. In the input box you can enter patient name to make it complete. You can see both graphs. You can check the slopes by moving the mouse over it. Detailed information is displayed.
At the bottom lies the About link. Click it. It opens the about page with some details about the processor. This demo firmware runs on Espressif ESP32.
At the bottom we can see all available links. We will move into Settings. Click it.
Available options here are wi-fi settings, configuration and calibration which we want at the moment. Be sure to follow the instructions.
Firstly, remove everything from the scale. Press calibration.
Secondly, enter your calibration weight, but be sure to put the weight on the scale before pressing ENTER.
After entering you have wait approximately 30 seconds. At the end we finish with the calibration factor which has been saved into configuration file by now.
Lastly we just have to return our empty collecting mug on the tray.
The uroflow device will restart and you can start measuring.

The other options we have in the about menu are: view configuration file, reset the configuration file with firmware defaults, reset wi-fi settings, format file system, restart, file upload – if you edit any of the pages just upload new ones, and firmware upload. Due to current state of software development kit, the firmware upload for now only works when using ESP8266. The main advantage of ESP32 is recording of 5 minute voiding time in opposite to ESP8266 where it is 1 minute. All due to RAM they have.
Now I will simulate the patient voiding and pour water into the mug. When the LED turn off we just have to press page refresh – that is F5 key. Here we can see the medical report. I will enter “some name”. Now we just have to press CTRL+P for print preview and print it.

WINDOWS PROGRAM
I wrote a 64-bit program for windows. When you run it, first click the Connect button. Then enter patient name and year of birth. The program is still under heavy development. Now press Read button. The report contains all the data. Now you can print it. You can also save the data in a database. We will open a random previous flow from the database. See the data is different.
Other options in the program are: Config with its license key information, and about menu.
Now I will touch the machine to simulate voiding to show you that the program gives you a notice when the patient uses the uroflow. The Read button is disabled while voiding. At the end we can get new data.
At the end of the day, we just press disconnect and close the program.
Here I have to mention the windows program is intended for commercial usage.

DESCRIPTION
DIY Arduino uroflowmetry device. Uses ESP8266 or ESP32. Program written in Arduino. We will see how to calibrate the uroflowmetry device we have made in my previous video (https://youtu.be/bqYgydm8a3I). I will show you a basic usage. Device runs on ESP8266 or ESP32 from Espressif. Code is written in Arduino. Dedicated program with database runs on 64-bit Windows. Code is written in C++. All firmware is available on my github page (+ more details).

Free for personal use. Commercial use is negotiable. Simple to use, high precision, low cost (ca.10€).

Device runs on Espressif ESP32 or ESP8266. Works on NodeMCU. Code is written in Arduino. It is a simple Arduino project tutorial for beginners.
Uroflowmetry device for every home! Make your own measurements! Ideal for those with micturition problems. See if you need to visit an urologist.
Urologist will decide if you need further examination and/or treatment.
