First wearable device to predict when you need to go to the bathroom

DFree® is the first wearable device to predict when you need to go to the bathroom.  Designed primarily for seniors and people with disability who suffer from loss of bladder control, it continuously monitors your bladder and sends timely notifications to your phone when it’s time to go.  As a result, you no longer have to worry about accidents and have a safe and cost-effective alternative to diapers and medications. This device will also significantly reduce burden for caregivers who need to provide bathroom assistance.  DFree provides freedom to live an active lifestyle without worries. 

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 – First Health Tech Wearable Device for Incontinence Monitors Bladder and Notifies You When It’s Time to Go to the Bathroom

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.
