InTone has emerged as a first line therapy for both stress and urge incontinence and other related problems.
Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) July 03, 2013
Urinary incontinence, or bladder leakage, affects up to 30 million American women. 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™,a urinary incontinence treatment, 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.
After prescribing InTone, the physician 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 with the physician 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.
Dr. Sweeten states, "After 20 years of treating bladder leakage and prolapse, it is noteworthy that there have always been obstacles for women to participate in the rehabilitation of bladder control without side effects, significant downtime or inconvenience. As a gynecology specialist and surgeon focusing on incontinence, urogynecology and pelvic reconstruction I am excited to be able to offer a conservative successful approach to treatment with InTone to my patients that live with the embarrassment of bladder control issues. InTone has emerged as a first line therapy for both stress and urge incontinence and other related problems. In my professional opinion, this device is a breakthrough in the treatment of inadequate bladder control. As a leading provider in women's health care I am always seeking options that can effectively improve quality of life with minimal intervention and inconvenience. The InTone device is a strong viable opportunity to fulfill a need that has been lacking in the past for patients suffering from leakage. It is also ideal for those who have failed or prefer to avoid side effects of medical therapy or have not done well with other modalities. This revolutionary technology will allow many women to get relief and encourage women to seek treatment for these embarrassing conditions. Also the money back guarantee that the company offers is unparalleled and demonstrates not only commitment but confidence."
