Health Canada issues licenses for Contino® medical device for urinary incontinence
Life360 Innovations Inc. (Life360 Innovations) has received Class II Health Canada licenses for the Contino® urethral insert, Inserter and Gauge.
Contino® is a self-administered licensed medical device that controls bladder leakage in men. Much more than just a device, Contino® is an integrated solution that includes personalised fitting and support from incontinence specialists, so men can get on with life.
According to the Canadian Continence Foundation, urinary incontinence (UI) affects the lives of more than 1.2 million Canadian men, often as a result of prostate cancer treatments and other medical conditions. Issues with the comfort and safety of existing products, such as diapers, penile clamps, and condom catheters, have left a treatment gap for affected males says Dr. Mike Holloway Vice President Medical Life360 Innovations.
“The Contino® is a clear alternative to diapers and the other management techniques currently available”, says Robert Orr, President & CEO of Life360. “Our made-in-Canada UI solution is discreet, convenient and personalised – because there is no one-size-fits-all approach to managing incontinence.”
Prior to being licensed by Health Canada, Contino® was in development for over ten years and was the subject of a five-year, multi-site Canadian clinical study. Much more than just a device, Contino® is an integrated solution that includes personalised fitting and support from incontinence specialists, so men can get on with life. Life360 Innovations hopes that Contino® will not only help with the physical symptoms of UI, but also with the mental health implications – male UI has been found to be significantly associated with major depression.
“This approach to male UI is a breakthrough” say Dr. Steven Kline, a practicing psychiatrist and clinical professor. “With minimal training, it is straightforward to use, while complications are minimal and easily managed. Overall, the benefits of increased freedom to socialize, attend public functions and travel make this a valuable resource for an expanded lifestyle with much less worry.”
