The Science

Treatments That Work With Your Body

Elitone and Elitone URGE are expertly designed to provide effective neuromuscular stimulation to the pelvic floor muscles to treat loss of urinary control.

Revolutionary Technology, Backed By Science

Elitone is engineered to deliver neuromuscular stimulation to the pelvic floor muscles. Small electrical currents travel through the muscles in the perineal area between four areas of conductive gel. Treatment sessions last only 20 minutes and can be done while dressed and active, with no time loss.

Before Elitone, perineal-applied stimulation was only available in a clinical setting. Within 6-12 weeks, you can have your freedom and active lifestyle back without fear of leaks!

Stimulation Targets Pelvic Floor Muscles

Neuromuscular stimulation has been used for 50 years to treat incontinence. A small electrical signal is sent to the bladder or pelvic floor muscles, causing them to contract or relax in much the same way your nervous system uses electrical signals to control bladder function.

Before Elitone, this neuromuscular stimulation treatment was primarily delivered through a vaginal probe, which many women found uncomfortable and inconvenient.

Elitone and Elitone URGE work directly on the bladder and pelvic floor muscles to safely and effectively improve bladder control. Because they are completely external, you can spend your time and energy on other things during treatment.

Elitone is designed to treat stress urinary incontinence, the leaks that happen when you laugh, cough, sneeze, or exercise. Reducing or eliminating these leaks typically requires toning the pelvic floor muscles (think Kegels). Elitone does this for you by sending a pattern of signals that contract, calm, and rest the pelvic floor and bladder.  During treatment, you’ll likely feel your muscles contracting like you’re doing Kegels. Over a matter of weeks, muscle tone and control will improve, leading to fewer leaks. It also sends some signals to calm an overactive bladder.

Elitone URGE treats urge urinary incontinence, otherwise known as overactive bladder. These leaks occur when you feel a sudden, unexpected need to rush to the toilet and are caused by unwanted contraction of the bladder. Reducing or eliminating these urges typically requires calming the overactive bladder muscle. Elitone does this by sending a calming signal that trains the bladder to behave normally, leading to fewer leaks. Elitone URGE isn’t designed to tone the pelvic floor, so you won’t feel muscle contractions during treatment.

Our solutions are backed by patented technology and strong clinical data.

Perineal Placement
The patented, one-size-fits-all shape promotes correct anatomic positioning while achieving a high level of comfort, whether sitting, standing, or walking.

Four Conductive Regions
Spacing the conductive gel regions targets key pelvic floor muscles used to achieve continence.

Intuitive Design
Simple interface promotes safe and repeatable at-home use. No programming needed.

Low-Tack Hydrogel
The GelPad’s hydrogel was selected for its low tack and high conductance. This material has undergone ISO 10993 biocompatibility testing and is ideal for use on sensitive skin and over hair.

PMW Technology
Sending a signal through the skin is tricky, so Elitone uses a special high-frequency carrier wave, called a Pre-Modulated Waveform (PMW) to deliver an activating signal deep into the pelvic floor muscles. What this means for you is more comfort and better results.

Elitone
The activating signal in Elitone comes comes as two parts; 4 seconds of a medium-frequency toning signal that contracts the pelvic floor muscles, followed by 2 seconds of a low-frequency calming signal that relaxes the overactive bladder. This is followed by 6 seconds of rest. Then the cycle repeats.

Elitone URGE
Elitone URGE delivers 6 seconds of a low-frequency calming signal that relaxes the overactive bladder, followed by 6 seconds of rest. This cycle repeats for 20 minutes.

Elitone Patient Series: Significant Leak Reduction
Subjects living with stress incontinence for an average of 11 years quickly improved with Elitone. After 6 weeks of treatment 95% reported fewer leaks, with an average reduction of 71%. They also used fewer pads and had improved Quality-of-Life scores. [READ]

Elitone URGE Patient Series: Significant Improvements
97% of participants with urge and mixed incontinence improved with Elitone URGE after just 6 weeks. 85% of these achieved over 50% reduction in urge accidents. Quality-of-Life improved 10x more than what FDA considers “clinically significant.” [READ]

Ultrasound Visualization: Measurable Pelvic Floor Contraction
The study showed visual objective evidence that Elitone contracts the pelvic muscles. This included a subject who could not achieve a Kegel contraction on her own (even though she thought she was). Elitone did the work for her. [READ]

Randomized Controlled Trial: Significant Difference from Sham
In a large, randomized controlled study, subjects showed significant improvement over a “placebo” active sham device. This 12-week study included objective pad weight tests. Using meta data, outcomes were 66% better than typical results from vaginal stimulation devices. [MORE]

Guidance for Use

Who Should Use Elitone?

Elitone is ideal for women who could benefit from conservative treatments 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.
  • Don’t want medicines or surgery.

Elitone is a non-implanted muscle stimulator designed to treat stress urinary incontinence in women. It applies stimulation to the pelvic floor muscles and surrounding tissues.

Elitone Urge is a non-implanted muscle stimulator designed to treat urinary incontinence in women. It applies stimulation to the pelvic floor muscles and surrounding tissues.

Do NOT use if you:

  • Are pregnant or attempting to become pregnant. The safety of electronic muscle stimulators during pregnancy has not been established.
  • Have an electronic implant (e.g. cardiac pacemaker, implanted defibrillator) or suffer from heart problems.
  • Have active cancer, epilepsy, or cognitive dysfunction.
  • Have had pelvic floor surgery within the last six weeks.
  • Have complete denervation of the pelvic floor.
  • Have a history or symptoms of urinary retention, extra-urethral incontinence, or overflow incontinence.

Consult your healthcare provider before using the device if:

  • You have any serious illness or injury not mentioned in this guide.
  • You have an underlying neurological condition (e.g. Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease).

  • You take insulin for diabetes.
  • You suffer from muscle or joint problems, including pelvic pain or a paravaginal defect.
  • You suffer with suspected or diagnosed heart disease.
  • You underwent a recent surgical procedure and where muscle contraction may disrupt the healing process.
  • You have any doubt about using the device.
