Triple W to Feature DFree at SXSW – First Health Wearable for Urinary Incontinence

Ultrasound Sensor Monitors Bladder and Lets You Know When It’s Time To Go

SAN DIEGO, February 28, 2019 – Triple W, an innovator of connected health devices, will feature DFree®, the first wearable device for urinary incontinence, at the SXSW Trade Show, March 10-13, Austin Convention Ctr., 500 E Cesar Chavez St. According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, urinary incontinence affects 500 million people worldwide.

DFree uses ultrasound technology to monitor bladder fullness and notifies you on your smartphone or tablet when it’s time to go to the bathroom. 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 from Triple W. DFree stands for “diaper-free.”

Triple W recently won six innovation awards for DFree including the 2019 “Best of CES Award” - Digital Health and Fitness Category – selected by Engadget editors. 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.
