Noninvasive SUI Treatment

ELITONE® is FDA-cleared to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and is the first transcutaneous pelvic floor muscle stimulation available. The ELITONE device:

  • Contracts the correct pelvic floor muscles.
  • Trains women on the proper Kegel technique.
  • Performs pelvic floor muscle exercises more effectively than patient can do alone.
  • Requires little to no instruction from healthcare provider.

Treating SUI early can reduce surgical interventions in the future. In addition, ELITONE is worn at-home, under clothing, making it easy for women to continue their everyday tasks during treatment. This convenience increases the rate of compliance, leading to more effective treatment.

ELITONE is ideal for women with mild to moderate symptoms who would benefit from pelvic floor muscle training. This includes women who:

  • Are resistant to intravaginal treatments.
  • Have limited access to physical therapy, or want to supplement it.
  • Perform Kegel exercises incorrectly (1 in 4 women).
  • Prefer the convenience and privacy of home treatment (e.g, busy moms, working women).
  • Need postpartum care.

See the Indications for Use for a complete list of contraindications, warnings, and precautions.

The Science

ELITONE delivers electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) with a signal known to contract pelvic floor muscles and treat SUI. Current travels through the pelvic floor muscles in between the conductive gel areas. The proximity of the GelPad to the pelvic floor muscles achieves a clinically effective stimulation.

Typical Treatment

A typical treatment regimen consists of 20-minute sessions, 4 to 5 times per week. After 6 weeks, many women see improvement. Depending on the patient’s symptom severity, compliance, and intensity settings, treatments may continue up to 12 weeks. The patient should treat at the highest intensity that is comfortably tolerable.

After the 6–12 week regimen, a schedule for maintenance treatments may be established.

“I found that the noninvasive surface electrical stimulation device can be a very effective method to reduce incontinence symptoms. In our cohort of patients, we were able to demonstrate better pelvic floor contraction than with Kegels alone, with a non-vaginal device that is very easy to use, comfortable, and effective.”

Clinical Evidence

Historical Use of Pelvic Floor Muscle Stimulation

Intravaginal EMS has successfully treated incontinence for more than 40 years, most often used in pelvic floor physical therapy. However, many women perceive this treatment as highly invasive. Perineal-applied EMS has also been used, but only in a clinic-based setting. ELITONE enables patients to use this effective SUI treatment safely and comfortably at home.

Clinical Study

In a recent clinical study, participants self-administered ELITONE for 6 weeks of treatment. The study found 75% of the women achieved a clinically significant reduction in daily leaks, 85% had a clinically significant improvement in their Quality of Life score (I-QoL) and 67% recorded a clinically significant reduction in pad use.

Ultrasound Visualization

In an objective study, transabdominal ultrasound was used to visualize movement of the pelvic floor with ELITONE. The pelvic floor contracted in the desired caudal–posterior direction, even in a patient whose pelvic floor moved in the wrong direction during volitional Kegel exercises.

ELITONE fits with your busy practice

ELITONE is designed to be easy to use by all women—you won’t need to spend valuable time on training. Simply send patient home with the device, and follow up as needed. There are two ways to introduce ELITONE into your practice.

 

Prescribe or Recommend ELITONE

Patients can buy directly from Elitone.com. We provide you with product brochures to help communicate the treatment benefits.

 

Stock ELITONE

Patients may be more compliant if ELITONE is provided by their doctor, so they might prefer to purchase directly from you. Qualified clinics will have access to demo units and product brochures.

No prescription necessary.

A prescription isn’t necessary to purchase ELITONE, but a prescription may help your patients maintain compliance and receive reimbursement. Patients may purchase ELITONE using their FSA/HSA accounts.
