Triple W announces an exclusive agreement with Pisces Healthcare Solutions to provide the DFree wearable health device for urinary incontinence to veterans via a Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contract.
DFree is a non-invasive wearable device that uses safe ultrasound technology to monitor bladder fullness and notifies you on your smartphone or tablet when it’s time to go to the bathroom via the DFree companion app. DFree stands for “diaper-free.”
Veterans who have to manage urinary incontinence can check with their Veterans Affairs (VA) physician regarding use of DFree. Clinical justification may be required for benefit coverage. The Pisces Healthcare Solutions DFree catalog page may be shared with a VA physician to learn more about the portable bladder scanner. DFree is listed as FSS CONTRACT V797D-30191.
DFree is designed not only to help people with urinary incontinence improve their quality of life and enable independence, but also to help reduce the burden for the caregivers, according to Triple W in a media release.
“We have found veterans with spinal cord injuries (SCI) have an interest in DFree,” says Jasmine Wilson, Director of Sales Administration and Clinical Training of Pisces Healthcare Solutions, in the release.
“Veterans with SCI who may be managing bladder output on a timed schedule feel a sense of freedom to have a scheduled cue to perform output by means of catherization. Veterans commented they could sit through a movie, go fishing or ride in a car for periods longer than 2 hours without fear of urine leaking. Since each veteran has a different “bladder threshold,” they can customize the DFree app for their own personal needs to send an alert notification on their smartphone when it’s time to go.”
“We’re happy to be able to support our veterans through distribution of DFree with Pisces Healthcare Solutions,” Ty Takayanagi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Triple W, states. “Through our partnership we hope to give veterans with urinary incontinence an opportunity to live a more active daily life.”
