InControl Medical Ships First International Order to Ireland For Non-Surgical, Drug Free Treatment of Female Incontinence
BROOKFIELD, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--InControl Medical, LLC, introduces InTone® and Apex®, two new proprietary, patented women’s health devices for the treatment of female urinary incontinence, to women in Ireland. InTone is a non-surgical, drug free solution for stress, urge and mixed incontinence and Apex is the first-choice treatment for women with mild to moderate stress incontinence following childbirth or menopause.
“There is significant interest in our devices internationally, and we will ship to additional countries throughout Q1 of 2014.”
This is good news for the millions of women suffering from involuntary loss of urine. In addition to being an uncomfortable, personally sensitive condition, incontinence can be related to other serious health concerns, from pelvic pain to sexual dysfunction. Until now the only solution was expensive diapers or pads, taking medication or undergoing painful surgery.
“My mother suffered with incontinence and couldn’t even sleep through the night, so I developed these unique medical devices to help her. Now InTone and Apex are helping millions of women in the U.S., and we’re thrilled to be able to help women in Ireland,” said Herschel Peddicord, founder and CEO of InControl Medical. “There is significant interest in our devices internationally, and we will ship to additional countries throughout Q1 of 2014.”
InTone utilizes a scientifically-derived muscle stimulation algorithm, active resistance and biofeedback to dramatically increase muscle strength in the pelvic floor, providing effective treatment for stress, urge and mixed female urinary incontinence.
Apex utilizes a specific muscle stimulation algorithm in conjunction with a patented, customizable probe to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor in order to avoid leakage commonly associated with coughing, laughing, sneezing or exercising.
InControl Medical has received ISO 13485 certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the CE mark of the European Commission (EC), signifying that it meets comprehensive quality management requirements in the design and manufacture of medical devices.
