SMART BLADDER SENSING

Helping you eliminate bladder uncertainty.

 

OUR MISSION

We exist to improve the lives of individuals who suffer from the daily inconvenience of incontinence and bladder uncertainty.  We are developing technologies that allow for the real-time monitoring of bladder volume, creating accurate predictions for next void time.  Our product will help to transform lives by restoring independence, dignity, and convenience.

Current bladder monitors are either bulky, or rely on harsh imaging technologies such as ultrasound, while our solution is compact, user-friendly and utilizes gentle light-based technologies.  With user experience at the core of everything we do, Illume Labs is revolutionizing the incontinence market by developing easy-to-use, safe and discrete bladder sensors that will serve multiple key markets

Smart, convenient and safe.

IMPACT

Children in Toilet-Training

It is essential to a child's emotional development that toilet-training goes well.  Today's parents lead busy lives and yet most use toilet-training techniques that are over 200 years old.  We offer a solution that allows for quick and convenient toilet-training, eliminating guess-work and helping parents to make toilet-training a breeze.

Adult Incontinence

Over 200 million adults suffer from Urinary Incontinence [1], with over 50% of Seniors in North America affected [2]. Urinary incontinence is also a leading cause for institutionalization of the elderly.  With a growing elderly population, our product provides increased personal independence 

and greater quality of life.

Neurological Issues and Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Over 200,000 Americans with an SCI suffer from Urinary Incontinence [3].  In addition, individuals suffering from neurological issues such as Multiple Sclerosis are at risk of having issues voiding.  Illume's sensing technology can be used to reduce the number of catheterizations and decreasing cost and associated risks of infection, injury, and allergy.
