Are you ready to say goodbye to the embarrassing leaks that stop you enjoying life? Because iTouch Sure is here to provide excellent assistance in continence management. This is a drug-free and safe solution to give you the control that you deserve.
Bladder weakness is not a normal part of the aging process, nor should it be simply accepted as a normal part of life after childbirth. Bladder weakness is a treatable condition and shouldn't simply be 'managed' through the use of containment pads. But it is also not something to be ashamed of.
Our iTouch Sure device trains your pelvic floor muscles which are responsible for continence management. It sends a gentle stimulation (similar to your natural nerve impulses) direct to your pelvic floor muscles through a vaginal probe to make your pelvic floor muscles contract. If you have forgotten how to contract them, are having trouble getting muscle response, or simply want to bring back the condition of your pelvic floor muscles, the iTouch Sure can work them for you to build up their strength and help you to develop your own muscle control. It perfectly complements pelvic floor exercises.
iTouch Sure has 4 preset treatment programmes, clinically tested to improve continence management and provide a long-term relief from leaks.
Do NOT use if you are or may be pregnant. It is not known whether TENS may affect foetal development.
Do NOT use with optional electrode pads if you have a pacemaker (or if you have a heart rhythm problem) or with any electronic medical devices. Using this unit with electronic medical devices may cause erroneous operation of the device.
Stimulation in the direct vicinity of an implanted device may affect some models.
Stimulation on the front of the neck can affect your heart rate.
Very strong stimulation across the chest may cause an extra heartbeat.
Do NOT use in the first 6 weeks following a pelvic surgery or vaginal childbirth. Stimulation may disrupt the healing process.
Do NOT use if you have symptoms of active urinary tract infection, vaginal infections, or localized 12 lesions. Introducing the probe may irritate sensitive tissue.
Do NOT use if you have poor sensation in the pelvic region. You may not be able to control the intensity of stimulation safely.
Do NOT use if you are unable to properly insert the vaginal or anal probe.
If you have a severe prolapse, or if any discomfort occurs when inserting the probe, consult your healthcare professional before use.
Do NOT use when driving, operating machinery, or similar actions needing muscular control.
Loose electrode pads, damaged leads, or sudden changes in contact may cause brief involuntary muscle movements.
Do NOT use to mask or relieve undiagnosed pain. This may delay diagnosis of a progressive condition.
Do NOT use if you have, in the area being treated: active or suspected cancer or undiagnosed pain with a history of cancer. Stimulation directly through a confirmed or suspected malignancy should be avoided as it may stimulate growth and promote spread of cancer cells.
Caution should be used if you have a bleeding disorder as stimulation may increase blood flow to the stimulated region.
Caution should be used if you have suspected or diagnosed epilepsy as electrical stimulation may affect seizure threshold.
Caution should be observed when using the device at the same time as being connected to monitoring equipment with body worn electrode pads. It may interfere with the signals being monitored.
Simultaneous connection to high frequency surgical equipment may result in burns and damage to the stimulator.
Strong electromagnetic fields (electrosurgery/ microwave cookers/ mobile phones) may affect the correct operation of this unit. If it appears to behave unusually, move it away from these devices.
Do not permit use by persons unable to understand the instructions or persons with cognitive disabilities, i.e.; Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
Insertion of the vaginal or anal electrode makes it unsuitable for use in children without clinical supervision.
Keep away from children under 5 years of age. Long cord - risk of strangulation in infants.
Caution should be observed when using the iTouch Sure at high strength settings. Prolonged use at high settings may cause muscle injury or tissue inflammation.
No serious or long term adverse effects have been reported. Mild adverse reactions are very rarely reported, but these have included muscular pain and cramps, vaginal tenderness, irritation and bleeding, mild or short term urge or faecal incontinence, and tingling sensation in legs. If you experience any of these, stop use. When symptoms have gone, try resuming at a lower intensity setting.
The iTouch Sure vaginal probe is intended for single patient use only. Do not share your iTouch Sure probe with anyone else. Improper treatment or crossinfection may occur.
It is important that the vaginal probe is cleaned after each use. Ineffective cleaning may lead to irritation or infection.
Never insert or remove vaginal probe unless the control unit is powered OFF as insertion or removal when stimulation is active may cause discomfort or tissue irritation.
If tissue irritation occurs, discontinue treatment immediately. Ask your healthcare professional for advice before continuing further treatment to prevent injury.
Do not use a silicone based lubricant on the metal plates of the probe as it may decrease the effectiveness of iTouch Sure’s muscle stimulation.
The stainless steel in the probe’s metal plates contain some Nickel. This could cause a reaction if you have a Nickel allergy. Alternative gold probe specially made without Nickel is available.
Caution should be used if you have a copper IUD. If discomfort occurs, discontinue treatment immediately and ask your healthcare professional for advice.
There is a small risk of stimulating the uterine wall if the IUD is not correctly positioned.
Do not use this device with vaginal probe or anal probe other than those recommended by the manufacturer.
Electrodes with smaller surface area may cause tissue irritation.
DO NOT PLACE OPTIONAL ELECTRODE PADS:
On skin, which does not have normal sensation. If the skin is numb too great a strength may be used, which could result in skin inflammation.
On broken skin. The electrode pads could encourage infection.
ELECTRODE PADS CAUTION:
Do not ignore any allergic reaction to the electrode pads: If a skin irritation develops, stop using TENS, as this type of electrodes may not be suitable for you. Alternative electrode pads specially made for sensitive skin are available.
Do not use this device with leads or electrode pads other than those recommended by the manufacturer. Performance may vary from specification. Electrodes with smaller surface area may cause tissue irritation.
TO KEEP YOUR DEVICE IN GOOD WORKING ORDER, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL CAUTIONS:
Do not immerse your device in water or place it close to excessive heat such as a fireplace or radiant heater or sources of high humidity such as a nebulizer or kettle as this may cause it to cease to operate correctly.
Keep the device away from sunlight, as long-term exposure to sunlight may affect the rubber causing it to become less elastic and crack.
Keep the device away from lint and dust, as long-term exposure to lint or dust may affect the sockets or cause the battery connector to develop a bad contact.
Do not attempt to open or modify the TENS unit. This may affect the safe operation of the unit and will invalidate the warranty.
