Posted on December 31, 2014
December 2014 - InControl Medical, receives FDA clearance to sell their popular Apex Device over-the-counter, without a doctor's prescription. Apex cures stress incontinence for the 1 in 3 women living with bladder leakage by strengthening the muscles of the pelvic floor, eliminating the need for pads or diapers.
"Now millions of women can stop buying bladder leakage pads," said Herschel Peddicord, President of InControl Medical. "Apex is a scientifically designed device that was previously sold only in physicians' offices by prescription and represents a significant leap forward for women's health freeing them from reliance on inconvenient and expensive pads."
Women are often told to do their Kegels, but have difficulty completing these exercises correctly, resulting in no benefit in strengthening the pelvic floor. Apex stimulates and strengthens the appropriate muscles, similar to a personal trainer for your pelvic floor. Women can now restore their pelvic floor strength easily and effectively by using Apex.
