Use of HidrateSpark 2.0 Improves Fluid Intake Levels for Study Participants Who Form Kidney Stones

The American Urological Association and American College of Physicians advocate a daily goal urine volume of 2.5 liters β€” nearly 11 cups of urine output β€” for people who form kidney stones. High dietary fluid intake, then, is a cornerstone of kidney stone prevention. Yet one of the most common barriers people who form kidney stones face in achieving sufficient fluid
intake is difficulty remembering to drink enough water.

"Study outcomes support that the addition of the HidrateSpark 2.0 smart bottle to dietary recommendations may lead to less difficulty remembering to drink and greater increases in 24-hour urine output volumes."

HidrateSpark Excels in Baseline Clinical Trial for Prevention of Urinary Stones

Urinary stones affect nearly 10% of people in the United States, and those sufferers have a 50% chance of forming more stones within five years. There aren't many proven treatments for the prevention of urinary stones, but studies support that high fluid intake is perhaps the most effective preventive strategy.

"24-hour fluid intake measurements from a Hidrate Spark are accurate to within 3%. Indicating an extremely high consistency"

HidrateSpark Excels in Baseline Clinical Trial for Prevention of Urinary Stones

An ongoing clinical trial is testing the effectiveness of the HidrateSpark smart water bottle to help patients with urinary stones maintain high enough fluid intake levels to prevent stones from recurring. More than 600 participants have been recruited since the prevention of urinary stones with hydration (PUSH) study began in 2017.

"This study supports that the HidrateSpark smart water bottle can be used to facilitate a program that rewards water drinking to prevent urinary stones."
