Triple W Wins iPhone Life’s Best of CES 2019 Award for DFree

First Health Wearable Device for Urinary Incontinence Monitors Bladder and Notifies You When It’s Time to Go

SAN DIEGO – January 30, 2019 – Triple W, an innovator of connected health devices, today announced it was named a winner of the iPhone Life Best of CES 2019 Award for DFree®, the first health wearable device for urinary incontinence. iPhone Life editors scout the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to find the “most forward-thinking and useful iOS gear coming to market this year” for the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch users. The Best of CES 2019 Awards are given to companies the editors select as having the best new technology during CES, January 8-11, 2019 in Las Vegas.

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 and people with disability 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.” According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, urinary incontinence affects 500 million people worldwide.

“We’re honored to be selected by iPhone Life as an innovative and useful solution for people who have a loss of bladder control or are caregivers for a loved one facing a challenge,” said Atsushi Nakanishi, President and CEO for Triple W. “DFree helps to prevent accidents by letting you know how full your bladder is so you can time your bathroom break at the right time for you.”


DFree is available for purchase now in the U.S. from the DFree website, Amazon and authorized retailers for $499.99 (MSRP). DFree is also available to rent 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.
