Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) October 25, 2013
Symptoms of stress incontinence include leakage that occurs after coughing, sneezing, laughing, or during exercise and is often related to weakened pelvic floor muscles. Symptoms of urge incontinence include a strong, sudden need to urinate due to bladder spasms or contractions.
InTone™ is the first medical device that combines muscle stimulation and patient-directed exercises with visual biofeedback into a single device specifically designed strengthen the muscles in the pelvic floor while calming spasms of the bladder. Harriette M. Scarpero, M.D., and Kate Meriwether, NP, have been specially trained to provide InTone treatment for patients.
After prescribing InTone Harriette M. Scarpero, M.D., and Kate Meriwether, NP, customizes the settings for InTone and the patient is shown how to use it at home. A sensor in the unit measures the strength of the patient’s contraction while visual biofeedback is provided to further encourage the patient’s performance. The hand-held control unit uses voice-guided instruction to guide the patient through the exercise routine, reminding her to maintain relaxation of her abdomen, buttocks and leg muscles. Each daily session takes about ten minutes, and data from each session is recorded.
After two weeks, the patient follows up Harriette M. Scarpero, M.D., and Kate Meriwether, NP, who will analyze her recorded data and modifies InTone settings based upon the patient’s progress. Patients will continue to follow up once per month for a duration of 14-26 weeks, based upon her diagnosis.
A Guaranteed Solution: Many women with urinary incontinence endure it in silence. Pads and hygiene products do nothing to treat the condition. Medications, if prescribed, can cause side effects and are not always effective. Surgery, if performed, can be expensive and painful, and is not a guaranteed solution. InTone is the only treatment option that provides the patient with a full money-back guarantee on the cost of the device if she does not experience improvement after following the recommended protocol.
InTone is now available by prescription to patients in the United States. More information on InTone can be found at http://www.incontrolmedical.com.
InTone was developed by InControl Medical, LLC, an FDA-listed company based in Brookfield, Wisconsin providing specialty medical products for women’s health, and is sourced and manufactured entirely in the United States.
