Triple W Introduces D-pad Accessory for DFree, the First Wearable Device for Urinary Incontinence

SAN DIEGO – September 24, 2019 – Triple W, an innovator of connected health devices, today introduced the D-pad accessory for use with DFree®, the first wearable device for urinary incontinence.

DFree is a non-invasive device that uses 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.

D-pad helps to position the DFree ultrasound sensor in the correct place on the abdomen with a built-in bracket designed to hold the sensor over the bladder. Now DFree customers can choose either the D-pad or medical tape to adhere the ultrasound sensor to their skin.

DFree helps to prevent accidental urinary leaks. Seniors, people with disability and others who need to manage a loss of bladder control now have an alternative to disposable diapers or pads and medications with the DFree health wearable device. DFree stands for “diaper-free.” 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.

“We wanted to make it easier for our customers to position and secure the DFree sensor,” said Atsushi Nakanishi, Founder and CEO for Triple W. “With the D-pad, you no longer need to worry whether the sensor is placed correctly to accurately monitor your bladder.”

Availability & Pricing

D-pad is available to purchase in the U.S. from the DFree website for $39.99. Each D-pad package includes a set of five D-pad sheets. Each sheet is reusable up to five times and gentle on the skin. D-pad is compatible with DFree-U1P device. The DFree device is available for purchase in the U.S. from the DFree website, Amazon and authorized retailers for $399.99 (MSRP). DFree is also available to rent-to-own from the DFree website for $40 per month with a minimum rental term of 30 days. The DFree companion app may be downloaded for free from the App Store and Google Play. The app supports iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod) running iOS version 10 or later and Android devices (phones, tablets) running Android 4.4 or later.
