UroMems’s ambition is to revolutionize the treatment for severe urinary incontinence using the latest technological advances in the field of embedded systems and micro-technologies for the development of its implantable products.

UroMems’s product is an active implantable medical device which compensates for sphincter insufficiency with the help of a MyoElectroMechanical System. This innovative system is placed around the urethral duct and is automatically controlled based on the patient’s activity.

The benefit of this method is twofold. The urethral pressure is increased when the patient is engaged in a physically-demanding activity, to make sure the device is efficient, and decreased when the patient’s activities do not require high compression on the tissues.
