InControl Medical Ships InTone and Apex, First Non-Surgical, Drug Free Treatment for Female Urinary Incontinence to Women in Australia

BROOKFIELD, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–According toContinence Foundation of Australia, “4.8 million Australians of all ages and backgrounds are affected by incontinence with an expected rise to 5.6 million by 2030.The monetary valueof the burden of this disease in 2010 is $23.8 billion. If this is added to the financial costs, the overall cost of incontinence is $66.7 billion in 2010, or approximately $14,014 per person with incontinence.”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 Australia.

“The success of the InControl Medical suite of products in the U.S. has resulted in demand from other countries looking for a highly effective and low cost treatment for incontinence and we’re pleased now offer it to Australian women”

This is good news for the millions of Australian women suffering with 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 sexualdysfunction and the inability to orgasm.

Before InTone and Apex, the only solution for women suffering with stress, urge and mixed incontinence or mild to moderate stress incontinence following childbirth or menopause was expensive diapers or pads, takingmedication or undergoing painful surgery. Now these first-line treatment devices used in the U.S. to treat this challenge are available in Australia.“

The success of the InControl Medical suite of products in the U.S. has resulted in demand from other countries looking for a highly effective and low cost treatment for incontinence and we’re pleased now offer it to Australian women,” says Herschel Peddicord, founder and CEO ofInControl Medical.

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 employs a specific muscle stimulation algorithm in conjunction with a patented, customizable probe to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor to avoid leakage commonly associated with coughing, laughing, sneezing or exercising.
