Continence Training Device

Fecal incontinence is accompanied by significant social anxiety and decreased quality of life. Treatment options are limited. Strength training is the key. It requires a way to overload muscles and feedback to the exerciser about each contraction.

This novel device from MCW & USC provides resistance that can be increased as strength is gained and a clear signal that muscle contractions during exercise are enough to strengthen muscles. In doing so the device exercises the muscles involved in incontinence to provide users with confidence to re-engage fully in social activities.

Key Advantages

  • Simple device/low cost of goods
  • Used at home
  • Simple to train patients for correct use
