Life360 Innovations Inc. (Life360 Innovations) has completed its five-year, multi-site Canadian clinical study of the Contino® medical devices. The study demonstrated product safety and significant results for effectiveness along multiple metrics.
Contino® is a self-administered licensed medical device that controls bladder leakage in men. Much more than just a device, Contino® is an integrated solution that includes personalised fitting and support from incontinence specialists, so men can get on with life.
Study participants experienced a mean reduction in absorbent pad weight of 75% while using Contino®, as well as an improvement in scores measuring the frequency, severity and impact of urinary incontinence (UI) on quality of life. Some participants also observed health improvements that related to both urinary function and general health, including improved urge reflex, improved bladder sensitivity, and improved continence. Adverse events related to Contino® were few, minor, and manageable.
“We are excited by the study results and the impact that Contino® can have on the quality of life of men with UI,” says Robert Orr, President & CEO of Life360. “Completing the study is a major product development milestone that will support our regulatory applications to Health Canada and other competent authorities for the Contino® medical devices.”
According to the Canadian Continence Foundation UI affects the lives of more than 1.2 million Canadian men, often as a result of prostate cancer treatments and other medical conditions. Issues with the comfort and safety of existing products, such as diapers, penile clamps, and condom catheters, have left a treatment gap for affected males.
Contino® has been in development for over ten years, culminating with the study led by Dr. Richard Casey, Chief Medical Officer of CMX Research Inc., and Dr. Dean Elterman, staff urologist at Toronto Western Hospital/University Health Network. Dr. Michael Holloway, Vice President Medical of Life360 Innovations, was chair of the medical advisory committee for the study.
