2017 Joule Innovation Award Winner
When a friend told him about a problem with incontinence, Dr. John Pacey, a vascular surgeon from Vancouver, put his knowledge to good use. He received the Joule grant to further develop the Pacey Cuff™, a urethral control device for help with incontinence, post prostatectomy. The Pacey Cuff™ provides confident self-control without any discomfort for those who have urinary sphincter incompetence. It applies specific pressure to the urethra while maintaining blood flow in the penis. It allows for the resumption of normal life activities with minimal use of expensive pads and no use of adult diapers.
