I-Tech Medical continues to develop patient-centric medical devices that help to improve the quality of life for patients undergoing pain therapy or those seeing physiotherapy at home. The product portfolio at I-Tech is exhaustive, with many products raising the benchmark for ultrasound procedures and electrotherapy. The emphasis remains on engineering medical devices that are innovative, backed by research and capable of ensuring maximum accuracy. Designed & developed by I-Tech, each of these medical devices ensures easy operation and significantly reduces healing time. Many of these devices are easy enough to operate for at-home carers, patient support staff as well as by professional therapists. Mio Peristim is one such electrotherapy device that is designed to make urinary and fecal incontinence treatments more effective.
MIO-PERISTIM is a device particularly indicated for urinary and faecal incontinence treatments.
FES (functional electrical stimulation).
FES electrotherapy can be used for the treatment of male and female incontinence problems.
Suitably therapy can stimulate the walls of the pelvic muscles, which control the bladder, toning and strengthening them: this way muscle control is increased and problems of an irritable bladder are reduced.
There are different types of incontinence:
Stress incontinence: urine leaks during simple actions, such as laughing, sneezing, coughing or any other similar situation where there is pressure on the bladder. Incontinence from strain is the most common sort in women, and often occurs after pregnancy or during the menopause, when the pelvic muscles lose tone and give less support to the bladder, which tends to lower towards the vagina.
Urgent incontinence: urine leaks without any obvious reason, but you just cannot control the urge: the most common cause of this sort of incontinence is when the muscles that control the bladder involuntarily contract.
Mixed incontinence: a combination of the above causes of strain and urgent incontinence: this situation often occurs in women.
Faecal incontinence: when the patient is unable to control the urge to defecate, and rehabilitation therapy will be addressed to strengthening the sphincter muscles.
Incontinence is treated with electro-stimulation, by using specific protocols, with special wave forms in terms of frequency and amplitude of the stimulation impulse.
Special medical probes are used (vaginal for urinary incontinence in women, anal for faecal incontinence in men and women) which transmit weak impulses that are generated by the device to the pelvic or sphincter muscles, causing them to contract and regain tone and strength.
FES in treating female sexual problems.
Sexual pain is a very widespread problem in gynaecology.
Given the important role that FES plays in re-educating and rehabilitating the muscular functions of the pelvic floor, the same technique can also be proposed in treating painful sexual problems in women.
However, the patient is always advised to carry out voluntary rehabilitation exercises for the pelvic floor muscles at home at least 3 times a week, for at least 20 minutes each session.
The results obtained with FES rehabilitate the floor muscles with considerable improvement in both contracting ability and relaxation.
