InCare® Sensors-Patient Comfort is Our First Concern
Approximately 28.1 million American women will suffer from at least one pelvic floor disorder, a number that is expected to increase to 43.8 million in 2050, according to a research reported at the American Urogynecologic Society.
The InCare Sensors are intended to provide messaging from pelvic musculature to a biofeedback device for the purpose of rehabilitation of weak pelvic floor muscles in the treatment of urinary incontinence. Urinarey incontinence is the involuntary and unwanted loss of urine from the bladder or urethra.
The InCare Sensors features are:
5 EMG sizes to accommodate a variety of anatomical considerations
Latex free pressure sensors with no flange
No flange on 4 of the EMG sensors which allow for better sensor placement and patient comfort
Circumferential sensors which enable more accurate sensing of muscle Requirement
Sensors are compatible with many different types of biofeedback and EMG equipment
Sensors have laboratory tested for safety of materials
There are two types of InCare Sensors Available, EMG and Pressure
The EMG Sensors are designed to detect the bioelectric activity of the pelvic floor musculature. The EMG Sensors all have a miniDIN connector and circumferential electrode placement for improved specificity in detections.
The EMG Vaginal Sensors are offered three (3) different sizes:
- 1" sensor for women of childbearing age and those who are sexually active
- 3/4" Sensor used for smaller vagina, such as for the perimenopausal women
- Short "tampon" type is slender and short for the patient who has had pelvic surgery and may have a shortened vaginal vault
The EMG Rectal Sensors are offered in two (2) configurations:
- 1/2" Sensor which is also used for atrophic vagina
- Wide based Sensor with a flange to prevent concerns about probe migration
The InCare Vaginal and Anal Pressure Sensors are designed with a biocompatible silicone blader that connects the probe to a pressure transducer via tubing. Once the sensor is inserted into the vagina oranus the bladder is filled with air. The sensors measure the strength of the pelvic floor muscles by offering resistance to a patient's voluntary of these muscles.
The Pressure Sensors come in two different sizes, (both are latex free)
- Rectal pressure sensor which holds 5cc of air
- Vaginal pressure sensor with holds 15cc of air
