Bengaluru, December 19, 2023: Fortis Hospital, Bannerghatta Road today launched JOGO Clinic, a state-of-the-art advanced clinic committed to offering non-invasive, technologically driven treatments for a range of urinary disorders. This clinic represents a significant advancement in the field of urological rehabilitation, using the power of cutting-edge electromyography (EMG) biofeedback and Neuromodulation technologies. It introduces a new age of digital therapy, offering innovative solutions for patients seeking effective and non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence.
JOG device is a portable and non-invasive digital therapeutic tool meticulously designed to target pelvic floor, neuromuscular, and musculoskeletal disorders. This includes conditions such as chronic low back pain, urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapses, voiding dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, and vaginismus. Utilizing a unique algorithm for recording and displaying EMG signals, JOGO facilitates easy interpretation for both clinicians and patients.
At the heart of JOGO’s technology lies the principle of neuroplasticity, which refers to the brain’s ability to adapt and reorganize itself in response to learning, experience, or injury. This principle is key to creating new neural pathways, activating dormant muscles, and effectively addressing various neuromuscular disorders. The Electromyography (EMG) precisely encourages the physiological process of muscles, including contraction and relaxation, easily converted into visual and auditory signals. This feature is instrumental in diagnosing disorders, enhancing learning and muscle coordination, and maximizing muscular strength and function.
Speaking on the Launch, Dr Mohan Keshavamurthy, Senior Director – Urology, Uro-Oncology, Uro-Gynaecology, Transplant and Robotic Surgery, Fortis Hospitals, Bengaluru and Chairman – Renal Sciences Specialty Council, Fortis Healthcare said, “A significant number of patients present with pelvic floor disorders, impacting both men and women. Statistics reveal that Pelvic Floor Dysfunction affects 50% of childbearing women and 16% of men. Additionally, 41-50% of women over 40 experience Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). Recognising this prevalent trend and the need for a specialized clinic, the collaboration empowers us to offer our patients a customized path to recovery that is both effective and devoid of the discomforts of traditional surgery. JOGO’s cutting-edge technology aligns seamlessly with Fortis’s commitment to providing the best possible care and best clinical outcomes to our patients.”
“Our partnership with JOGO Health is a leap forward in enhancing patient care. The integration of JOGO’s advanced technology into our urology department not only signifies innovation but also reinforces our dedication to delivering progressive and effective solutions for urinary health”, added Dr Rubina Shanawaz, Consultant – Uro-Gynaecology and Robotic Surgery, Fortis Hospitals, Bengaluru.
Mr. Charles Jesudasan, General Manager & Country Head, JOGO Health said, “We are at the cusp of a new era in healthcare. Till date, with JOGO more than 10,000 patients including 2000+ patients who have been treated in in pelvic floor disorders across the globe. Our collaboration with Fortis Hospital is a testament to our shared commitment to advancing urinary health through innovative, patient-centric solutions.”
