According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, urinary incontinence affects 500 million people worldwide. Triple W is tackling bladder control with a new approach! Seniors and people with disability who need to manage a loss of bladder control now have an alternative to disposable diapers or pads and medications with the DFree wearable health device from Triple W. DFree stands for “diaper-free.” DFree uses ultrasound technology to prevent bladder accidents.
Customers now have the option to rent or purchase DFree from the company’s website or purchase it from Amazon or through one of Triple W’s authorized resellers. The lightweight and portable DFree device may be discreetly clipped on your belt or clothing while the non-invasive ultrasound sensor is secured to the lower abdomen with medical tape. The sensor uses non-harmful ultrasound technology to monitor the change in bladder size and predicts urination timing using a patented algorithm. DFree connects via Bluetooth® to a smartphone or tablet and sends notifications via the DFree app (available on App Store and Google Play) — informing the individual or caregiver, when it’s time to go to the bathroom. The user sets the threshold of when they want to be notified such as when their bladder is 65 percent, 70 percent or 85 percent full.
Triple W was named a CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree for DFree.
