Analytica Limited (ASX: ALT) is a medical device company whose lead product is the PeriCoach™ System, an e-health treatment system for women who suffer Stress Urinary Incontinence. The company believes that PeriCoach is the only smartphone pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation system indicated for women to target resolution of symptoms for mild to moderate POP, UI and sexual wellness.
Today, the company announced that its PeriCoach system is now CE-Marked to assist in the conservative treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) in addition to urinary incontinence (UI), allowing PeriCoach to be sold in the European Economic Area, Switzerland and Turkey for the conservative treatment of pelvic organ prolapse.
As per the company’s Chairman Dr. Michael Monsour, expanding the indication of PeriCoach to include pelvic organ prolapse supports the company’s commitment to offering women and clinicians the best in class conservative treatment tool for pelvic floor disorders including urinary incontinence and sexual wellness.
The PeriCoach system assists women to properly perform pelvic floor exercises and it is widely recognised that pelvic floor muscle exercises are an effective tool in reducing the burdensome POP symptoms. It is believed that Pelvic floor muscle exercises hare an effective tool in treating women with mild to moderate POP symptoms. In a 2015 case study, the company had demonstrated that when the PeriCoach was used in coordination with a pelvic floor physiotherapist, symptoms of POP were reduced, quality of life improvements were reported, and the requirement of an assistive inserted pessary was no longer needed.
In the US alone, around 60 Million women are experiencing POP, urinary incontinence and sexual wellness concerns. As the population ages, more women are at risk for surgery which is leaving room for complications and a large burden on healthcare systems.
