WHAT IS ACT®?
NOT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES.
The ACT® device consists of two small, adjustable silicone balloons connected with tubing to a port. During a minimally invasive outpatient procedure of approximately 30 minutes, the balloons are surgically placed on either side of the bladder neck. The fluid-filled balloons provide pressure and support which protects against accidental leaking of urine that can occur during a sneeze, cough, or physical activity. When you need to urinate, it will only require a normal amount of bladder effort. The balloon size can be altered through a small port located underneath the skin of the labia majora.
Adjustable to individual patient’s need
