Galway medtech wins Irish Times Innovation of the Year award

05 November, 2019

Galway-based medtech company Atlantic Therapeutics has won the Irish Times Innovation of the Year award 2019 for developing a non-invasive, long-lasting solution to bladder weakness and other disorders associated with pelvic floor muscle problems.

As many as one in three women and one in 10 men suffer from urinary incontinence, primarily due to weakened pelvic floor muscles. The condition often goes untreated and unreported due to the embarrassment involved and the stigma felt by patients.

Atlantic Therapeutics’ innovative device, Innovo, is similar in style and feel to a pair of cycling shorts and works by strengthening and rebuilding the pelvic floor muscles.

Earlier this year the company raised €28 million ahead of a move into the US market just months after receiving FDA approval for its flagship Innovo technology platform.
