The Vision

ConTIPI Medical, and its associate company ConTIPI Limited, both located at the Caesarea Industrial Park in Israel, provide non-surgical and disposable vaginal medical device solutions for women with various Pelvic Floor Disorders (PFD’s). Each device comes ready for use within a wrapper for the woman to use in the comfort of her own home on her schedule. The devices are inserted vaginally in small dimensions inside an applicator. Within the vagina they open and provide support to pre-defined specific sites along vaginal walls. By the end of usage, devices are removed by a pull of a string, which also causes them to considerably diminish in size, for disposal. Such devices allow women to take control over their medical problem, and use them in privacy and their preferred time.

ConTIPI’s concept has already proved itself, brought from a concept into a mature product in the market. The Impressa Device for Stress Urinary Incontinence, bought by Kimberly Clark Worldwide Inc, is marketed by Kimberly Clark Inc. under its Poise® brand (http://www.impressapro.com).

ConTIPI Medical’s ProVate Device, for the non-surgical management of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) has a CE Mark for marketing in the EU, and is currently within final clinical studies in the USA (considered an investigational device, limited by Federal (or United States) law to investigational use). ConTIPI Medical intends to develop more solutions for other Pelvic Floor Disorders in women, following its unique concept.
