    I'll be at SVMC that morning to try out their FES devices...I may just stay for the presentation that evening.
    No one ever became unsuccessful by helping others out

    Is it not this device:
    https://finetech-medical.co.uk/produ...ontrol-system/

    Have a search on the whole of care cure for Vocare and you'll find more info.

    It would be interesting to know if this is just a relaunch, or they have enhanced it so it delivers sensation.
    The existing system removes sensation. On a personal level I would want to know when my bladder is full, and more importantly experience the sensation of sexual function, rather than just the motor side of things.

    I don't believe the results of the trial have been written up yet. Anyway, I haven't found it.

    This trial seems to match the description in the article:

    https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02978638

    No results, but it does indicate they are using the Vocare in a different way.

    Yes, that's the correct trial but it hasn't been written up for publication just yet.

    Brief Summary:This study aims to improve continence of patients with spinal cord injury using electrical stimulation.
    The Finetech Vocare Bladder System is an implantable sacral nerve stimulator for improving bladder and bowel function in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). It has been commercially available in Britain and other countries since 1982, and has been used in thousands of patients with SCI to improve bladder, bowel and sexual function. It received FDA approval in 1998 under Humanitarian Device Exemption H980005 and H980008 for providing urination on demand and to aid in bowel evacuation.
    Electrical stimulation to produce bladder contraction and improve bladder voiding after spinal cord injury has usually been combined with cutting of sensory nerves to reduce reflex contraction of the bladder, which improves continence. However, cutting these nerves has undesirable side effects. This study will not cut any sensory nerve. This study is testing the use of the stimulator for inhibiting bladder contraction by stimulating sensory nerves to improve continence after spinal cord injury.
