Title (EN) DEVICES AND METHODS FOR ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF URINARY AND FECAL INCONTINENCE
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET PROCEDES D'EVALUATION ET DE TRAITEMENT DE L'INCONTINENCE URINAIRE ET FECALE
Abstract:
(EN) This invention is a device (10) and method for evaluating and treating urinary as well as fecal incontinence by using proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. The device (10) is adapted to be inserted within and retained within an anatomical passageway (U, A) and provide periodic stimulus to wall or muscles within the anatomic passageway (U, A) by way of pressure, stretching, resistance, vibration, and/or heat. The frequency, duration, and extent of the stimulus may be varied as desired for exercise regimens.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif (10) et un procédé d'évaluation et de traitement de l'incontinence urinaire et fécale. Elle recourt à la facilitation neuromusculaire proprioceptive. Le dispositif (10) est conçu pour être introduit et maintenu à l'intérieur d'une voie de passage anatomique (U, A) et fournir un stimulus périodique aux parois ou aux muscles à cet endroit, par pression, étirage, résistance, vibration ou chaleur, ou par plusieurs de ces moyens. La fréquence, la durée et l'étendue du stimulus peuvent être modifiées comme on le désire pour des programmes d'exercice.
