Title (EN) PELVIC MUSCLE REHABILITATION FOR TREATING URINARY INCONTINENCE
(FR) RÉÉDUCATION DES MUSCLES PELVIENS POUR LE TRAITEMENT DE L'INCONTINENCE URINAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) The systems and methods described herein combine both moisture and electromyograph (EMG) sensors in a single wearable garment, along with a suitable output device such as a "smart" mobile device or computer, to provide users with new and useful feedback that can significantly improve incontinence symptoms. The EMG provides feedback to the user specifically regarding the quality of pelvic floor muscle contractions, while the moisture sensor provides feedback about the "end result" of the subjects' incontinence. Each measurement device alone can also provide useful information and feedback to different population groups. Combining these two measurements provides unprecedented data to enhance the subjects' therapy in managing urinary incontinence.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et les procédés qui combinent à la fois des capteurs d'humidité et d'électromyographe (EMG) dans un seul vêtement pouvant être porté, ainsi qu'un dispositif de sortie approprié tel qu'un dispositif mobile ou un ordinateur "intelligent", pour fournir aux utilisateurs un retour d'information nouveau et utile qui peut améliorer significativement les symptômes de l'incontinence. L'EMG fournit un retour d'information à l'utilisateur spécifiquement concernant la qualité des contractions musculaires du plancher pelvien, tandis que le capteur d'humidité fournit un retour d'information concernant le "résultat final" de l'incontinence des sujets. Chaque dispositif de mesure peut également fournir des informations utiles et un retour d'information à différents groupes de population. La combinaison de ces deux mesures fournit des données sans précédent pour améliorer la thérapie des sujets dans la gestion de l'incontinence urinaire.
