DGN study shows promising results9. December 2022
InnoCon Medical will, in collaboration with University College London (UCL)
and Royal National Orthopedic Hospital (London)
, test our non-invasive electrical stimulation device UCon using the Patch Electrode for restoring bladder function in patients with spinal cord injury.
Dr. Sean Doherty (UCL): “The loss of control over the bladder and bowel following spinal cord injury can be devastating for patients as they come to terms with the wide-ranging effects of paralysis in their daily lives. The UCon device provides us with a unique opportunity to restore control over urinary continence and increase bladder capacity by applying genital nerve stimulation effectively. In this pilot trial, we will evaluate the effects of user-controlled stimulation on bladder capacity and urinary continence in 10 people with spinal cord injuries. We are grateful to work with the committed team at InnoCon Medical and look forward to reporting trial results in 2024.
