Floelle Inc.

A nonsurgical and convenient device solution for female SUI

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Floelle Inc. is developing a nonsurgical solution for women with stress and mixed urinary incontinence that it thinks will address the drawbacks of current technologies and provide a safe and effective solution that is convenient for patients. The Floelle device resides in the urethra where it allows normal urination, but a pressure-sensitive valve blocks the involuntary urine leaks caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing, and other activities that increase intra-abdominal pressure in women with stress urinary incontinence.
