Triple W announced the development of its next generation DFree wireless bladder sensor at the All-Digital Consumer Electronics Show (CES), January 11-14 2021. The company plans to begin shipment in late 2021.
The next generation product is designed to be smaller, less expensive, and more environmentally friendly, according to the company, which has offices in Tokyo and San Diego.
The DFree device monitors the bladder using a noninvasive ultrasound sensor and notifies users or caregivers via smartphone or tablet when it is time to go. The new form factor, similar in size to a matchbox, is attached to the lower abdomen and monitors the user’s bladder safely using a personal ultrasound sensor, securely relaying the data to a user’s mobile device.
“Our elegantly designed personal sensor will enable seniors and people with disability with urinary incontinence more freedom and independence. The sleek design improves wearability and promotes confidence, allowing users the ability to predict and plan ahead, taking charge of their health needs.”
— company CEO Atsushi Nakanishi
