Statement

Overactive bladder is a common condition that affects an estimated 50 million people in the United States.

Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc. is a medical technology company that has developed implantable sacral neuromodulation (SNM) devices for the treatment of urinary and bowel dysfunction. Neuromodulation is an emerging therapy being applied to treat conditions such as chronic pain, headaches and tremors, using mild electrical pulses to stimulate targeted nerves inside the body. Karten Design transformed Axonics’ innovative technology into a complete ecosystem of physical and digital products that improve the experience of people suffering from incontinence. Axonics’s system has the industry’s first portable inductive charging device, giving patients the freedom to move. A handheld remote lets them inconspicuously adjust stimulation levels and check battery status. K:D also simplified the implant programming process for doctors with a lightweight programmer, built from the ground up to be helpful, simple and intuitive.
