US-based Valencia Technologies is a neuromodulation company transforming the standard of care for bladder dysfunction. Skin patches, vaginal seals and pads can be a burden for anyone who is dealing with urinary incontinence on a daily basis. Incontinence occurs when the muscles around the bladder contract too often or too much.
So Valencia Technologies which is working in this space of healthcare,have recently rolled out a new electrode device which is as small as a nickel and implanted above the ankle to nip the issue in the bud in a more convenient and private way.
eCoin is the first implantable tibial nerve stimulator indicated for treating urge urinary incontinence (UUI) which is FDA approved. eCoin is a coin-sized neurostimulator that is implanted subcutaneously in the lower leg with a minimally invasive outpatient procedure done under local anesthesia.
This device has a primary battery and once programmed, it automatically delivers intermittent stimulation (low-key shocks) to the tibial nerve to reduce UUI symptoms by preventing leaks and constant trips to the toilet. The USP of the device is that a doctor can control the intensity of the pulses with a remote, making it more customizable for a broad range of patients.
