SUMMARY: If you have urinary incontinence, it’s important to understand the type you have so you may select the best option available to manage this medical condition. Freedom from urinary “accidents” can give you confidence to do the things you love to do – whether its participating in a local walking group, enjoying your grandkid’s soccer game or catching up with friends at the local coffee shop.
DFree has received six U.S. innovation awards since Oct. 2018. DFree is designed not only to help people with urinary incontinence improve their quality of life and enable independence, but also to help reduce the burden for the caregivers. DFree’s patented technology is currently used in over 500 senior care facilities in Japan, Europe and the U.S. since 2017.
Triple W empowers people with incontinence to live without worries. Triple W was founded in 2015 and has offices in Tokyo, Paris and San Diego.
Prior to Triple W, Takayanagi headed product marketing for industry leader, Sony, including the tablet, home audio and home theater, and handheld computer divisions. His Sony background, coupled with his personal experience with the challenges of caregiving, helped him to launch DFree to the U.S. market.
