Review by OBG Management of our (now discontinued) InTone medical device for female urinary incontinence. InTone was the medical device that provided the basis for the Intensity product. There is science behind Intensity!
FEMALE URINARY INCONTINENCE DEVICE
The InTone® system from InControl Medical™ is a noninvasive home-based pelvic-floor rehabilitation program to treat female urinary incontinence. InControl offers two customizable probes. Apex, for women with mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence, delivers electro-stimulation to strengthen pelvic floor muscles and eliminate leakage associated with coughing, laughing, or exercise. Attain, for women with urgency and mixed urinary incontinence, provides alternating-frequency stimulation to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and calm detrusor muscle spasms.
The InTone system for moderate to severe incontinence combines muscle stimulation with pelvic-floor exercises. A hand-held control unit allows the patient to listen to prerecorded exercises at home. The control unit also offers visual biofeedback to ensure that the exercises are being completed properly. The patient can present the data from her workouts, stored by the handheld control unit, to her physician, who can then individualize the exercise plan. InTone is indicated for use in 12-minute sessions, six times a week, for 90 days to treat stress urinary incontinence, and for 180 days for urgency or mixed incontinence.
