New Clinical Trial for Moms with Incontinence

According to the National Institutes of Health, an estimated 20 million women in America have some loss of bladder control. Along with the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health, Athena Feminine Technologies, Inc. is initiating a nationwide enrollment for Phase IV of the DUETS (Device for Urinary Incontinence, Effectiveness, Tolerability and Satisfaction) research study for its Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer. This is an FDA-approved wireless vaginal electrical stimulator available by prescription for women with stress, urge or mixed incontinence.

After giving birth, a lot of women experience urinary incontinence. They may lose small amounts of urine occasionally due to coughing, laughing or sneezing, while others may saturate their clothing on a regular basis. If you are experiencing this you may be eligible for the 13 week study provided by Athena Feminine Technologies, Inc. and the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health.
