Founded in 2010 by CEO Herschel “Buzz” Peddicord, InControl Medical designs and manufactures patented devices for the control of incontinence.
“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.”
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.
