Dr Barbara J. Newman and Barbara Lockwood, Nurse Practitioner of Sunrise Women’s Healthcare Receive InTone Specialist Certification to Help Women Stop Bladder Leakage
Urinary incontinence, or bladder leakage, affects up to 30 million American women.
Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Symptoms of stress incontinence include leakage that occurs after coughing, sneezing, laughing, or during exercise and is often related to weakened pelvic floor muscles. Symptoms of urge incontinence include a strong, sudden need to urinate due to bladder spasms or contractions.
InTone™ is the first medical device that combines muscle stimulation and patient-directed exercises with visual biofeedback into a single device specifically designed to strengthen the muscles in the pelvic floor while calming spasms of the bladder. Barbara J. Newman, DO, FACOOG and Barbara Lockwood, MSN, WHCNP-BC of Sunrise Women's Healthcare have been specially trained to provide InTone treatment for patients. According to Dr. Barbara J. Newman, For years women have been telling me about their problems with leaking. I am so excited to finally have a way to treat them right in my office that is guaranteed and has no side effects.
After prescribing InTone, Dr. Newman & Nurse Practitioner Lockwood, customize the settings and the patient is shown how to use it at home. A sensor in the unit measures the strength of the patient’s contractions while visual biofeedback is provided to further encourage the patient’s performance. The hand-held control unit uses voice-guided instruction to guide the patient through the exercise routine. Each daily session takes about ten minutes, and data from each session is recorded.
After two weeks, the patient follows up, the recorded data is analyzed, and the InTone settings are modified based upon the patient’s progress. Patients will continue to follow up once per month for a duration of 14-26 weeks, based upon her diagnosis.
A Guaranteed Solution: Many women with urinary incontinence endure it in silence. Pads and hygiene products do nothing to treat the condition. Medications, if prescribed, can cause side effects and are not always effective. Surgery, if performed, can be expensive and painful, and is not a guaranteed solution. InTone is the only treatment option that provides the patient with a full money-back guarantee on the cost of the device. If she does not experience improvement after following the recommended protocol, she can return the device for a full refund.
InTone is now available by prescription to patients in the United States. More information on InTone can be found at http://www.incontrolmedical.com.
InTone was developed by InControl Medical, LLC, an FDA-listed company based in Brookfield, Wisconsin providing specialty medical products for women’s health, and is sourced and manufactured entirely in the United States.
