Artus, the first artificial sphincter that is adjustable and easy to live with.
This product is under clinical investigation
Urine is normally retained by a sphincter that may have become inefficient in women with the condition.
Artus is an artificial urinary sphincter that aims to replace the natural sphincter.
Once adapted to the urethra, the cuff is connected to the actuator, which is remotely controlled. The actuator commands closure and opening of the cuff by electromechanical action.
Voiding is achieved simply by pressing the main button on the remote control.
In order to mimic natural physiology, Artus has been designed to allow permanent adaptation to the patient’s lifestyle.
At each patient follow-up, cuff closure can be adjusted in accordance with potential development of the condition and in keeping with the patient’s lifestyle.
