EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR URINARY INCONTINENCE
Urinary incontinence is simply the loss of bladder control and it’s a far more common condition than you may realize. In fact, it’s very likely that you or someone you know-your mother, sister, or best friend is quietly coping with this potentially embarrassing problem. Unfortunately, many don’t realize that effective treatment options are helping women regain their comfort and confidence. InTone provides a Voice Guided Exercise Program, Visual Biofeedback, an Inflatable Probe and Muscle Stimulation at specific frequencies in an alternating manner to cure incontinence. In addition, InTone provides you with Objective, Quantifiable Data to demonstrate patient progress and assist in clinical decision making.
Inflation customizes fit to each patient and presses stimulation contacts against the muscle wall ensuring a deep muscle contraction and patient comfort Provides active resistance for pelvic floor muscles to contract against, resulting in a full muscle contraction. The probe repositions musculature into a resting position between contractions, avoiding concerns for tonic contraction
WHY WOULD I WANT MUSCLE STIMULATION?
High-Frequency Stimulation: strengthens the levator ani of the pelvic floor and the external urethral sphincter, elicits a full contraction of the pelvic floor providing neuromuscular re-training Low-Frequency Stimulation: calms spasms of the detrusor muscle.
HOW MANY TIME WILL I HAVE TO VISIT THE DR. FOR THIS PROCEDURE?
InTone and InToneMV requires 5-7 physician office visits based upon diagnosis to initially set up and program the device to the individual patient. Subsequent visits include a review of subjective and objective data and adjustment of stimulation to maximize progress.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK AGAIN?
InTone sessions are completed in the privacy of the patient’s home. Each session is approximately 12 minutes and is completed 6 days per week. Once desired results are achieved, patients continue with once or twice per week sessions to maintain gains. Stress Urinary Incontinence symptoms typically resolve within 10-14 weeks. Patients often notice improvement within a few weeks of use. Urge Incontinence symptoms can take up to 26 weeks to resolve depending on the severity of the individual’s symptoms at beginning of therapy. Patients will notice a gradual improvement in symptoms over time. Once desired results are achieved, patients move to a maintenance protocol of 1-2 times per week to maintain results.
