Relief wins the 15th edition of the Italian Master Startup Award!


Congratulations to the spinoff of the Institute of BioRobotics of the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna of Pisa which has developed a solution to combat urinary incontinence through a system with reduced invasiveness and low cost.

The spinoff has developed - thanks to a patented technology - a solution to combat urinary incontinence. The peculiarities of the device are many, including aesthetic invisibility and applicability to both sexes. In addition, the device is equipped with a wireless activation system based on the use of magnetic fields. The simple implantation procedure implies not only lower costs, but also reduced hospitalization times and therefore a reduced psychological impact for the patient.
