Founded in 2010 by CEO Herschel “Buzz” Peddicord, InControl Medical designs and manufactures patented devices for the control of incontinence.
Our philosophy is that first-line treatment should focus on improving the strength and support of the pelvic floor – and thus restore continence naturally.
Cleared by the FDA in 2012, the InTone® was the world’s only inflatable female incontinence device to provide quantitative data about the patient’s progress to her physician. Buzz Peddicord, who worked for many years in the medical device industry, initially designed the InTone to solve the incontinence problem of a family member.
“When I looked at the market,” he said, “I could see there were treatments for stress incontinence, and treatments for urge incontinence, but nothing solved the two together. And, nothing existed that got to the root of the problem: weak pelvic floor muscles and/or an overactive detrusor muscle.”
The company released the InTone®MV device in 2014. Designed to treat the 12 million men who suffer with urinary or fecal incontinence, the InToneMV gives physicians a non-surgical, implant-free solution.
In 2015, the company released the Apex®M, the only over-the-counter device to control stress, urge and mixed incontinence in women. Since its release, the company has sold over 70,000 units – and continues to garner top reviews on product shopping sites such as Amazon.
Today, InControl Medical manufactures its products at its Brookfield, Wisconsin facility. All materials are sourced in the US (90% of which are local); all devices are made by hand and tested at each stage of the process. The company holds over 50 patents – with eight patents pending.
