SAN DIEGO, Jan. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Triple W plans to begin shipment of the next generation personal bladder sensor for urinary incontinence in late 2021 and it will be available directly to consumers through the company website and from certified retailers and distributers, including Cardinal Health.
The DFree® device monitors the bladder using a noninvasive ultrasound sensor and notifies users or caregivers via smartphone or tablet when it is time to go. The new form factor, similar in size to a matchbox, is attached to the lower abdomen and monitors the user's bladder safely using a personal ultrasound sensor, securely relaying the data to a user's mobile device.
"Our elegantly designed personal sensor will enable seniors and people with disability with urinary incontinence more freedom and independence," said company CEO Atsushi Nakanishi "the sleek design improves wearability and promotes confidence allowing users the ability to predict and plan ahead, taking charge of their health needs". According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, urinary incontinence affects 500 million people worldwide, and affects more than 25 million Americans, (National Association for Continence).
As part of the CES event, Mr. Atsushi Nakanishi will participate on a special panel today to discuss "Wearables for a Super-Smart Aging Society: IoT for independence" at 3.35 PM PST. The panel will be moderated by Ms. Yuka Tanimoto, Managing Editor, Forbes JAPAN Web Editorial Team.
Triple W launched the world's first personal bladder sensor in 2018 and won the "Best of CES 2019" award in the Digital Health category. DFree® offers individuals managing incontinence improved peace of mind from accidental leaks. Seniors and people with disability who need to manage a loss of bladder control have an alternative to disposable diapers or pads and medications with the DFree® line of ultrasound sensors for incontinence.
The next generation product is a smaller, less expensive, and more environmentally friendly alternative to disposable diapers offering users improved freedom of movement and quality of life.
The company has partnered with the Veteran's Administration, The Spina Bifida Association, The National Incontinence Association, The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, to provide members and patients alike immediate access to advanced technology for improved bladder management. DFree® Products are available for purchase in the U.S. directly from the DFree website and authorized retailers.
