Incontinence, be it urinary or fecal, is not fun and products to treat it is not something that excites the average consumer. Yet, InControl Medical was at CES 2019 showing off its Attain device, a product for managing urinary and/or fecal incontinence in both men and women.
The Brookfield, Wisconsin firm claims that the Attain is the most advanced incontinence control device available for over-the-counter purchase. It uses both electrical muscle stimulation and visual biofeedback to train the pelvic floor muscles. After the user lovingly inserts the device into one of the lower orifices, the system delivers electrical stimulation along with the user contracting and relaxing the relevant muscles. Lights on the controller show how well the muscles are pushing against the distal end of the device, helping to monitor therapy and get the most benefit out of it.
