AGOURA HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Accidental Sisterhood and Caldera Medical today announced their partnership to educate women on the treatment options for the pelvic floor, and to reduce the suffering of women with Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP).

“teaming up with Accidental Sisterhood gives women a reliable source of information that they can explore at their own pace and in the privacy of their own home and is aligned with our mission of improving the quality of life for women.”

“Joining forces with Caldera Medical reflects our desire to collaborate with great companies that share our vision of developing, publishing and promoting credible information to ensure that women recognize and understand the treatable and preventable nature of common pelvic floor health issues so that they may get the help they need,” said Dr. Ray Bologna, Creator of Accidental Sisterhood.

Caldera Medical is a medical device company that develops differentiated surgical implants for the treatment of SUI and POP. “Women are often embarrassed to talk about these topics and might not even talk about them with their own friends,” stated Bryon Merade, Chairman and CEO of Caldera Medical, adding, “teaming up with Accidental Sisterhood gives women a reliable source of information that they can explore at their own pace and in the privacy of their own home and is aligned with our mission of improving the quality of life for women.”

Caldera Medical’s education grant to Accidental Sisterhood Foundation will allow them to reach an even greater audience of women. In addition, Caldera Medical will promote Accidental Sisterhood’s mission in an attempt to generate more positive support for the cause.

WHI’s goal is to alleviate one million women suffering from incontinence and prolapse by 2025.

About Accidental Sisterhood Foundation

Accidental Sisterhood Foundation’s mission is to empower women to take informed steps toward pelvic floor health with expert-supplied education presented online, in books, and at educational events. Accidental Sisterhood Foundation seeks to educate women. “Seeing one patient in the office and repeating it over and over again, will not send the message out. That’s why we developed Accidental Sisterhood to educate thousands and thousands of women.” – Dr. Ray Bologna, Creator of Accidental Sisterhood Foundation.

“Women of all ages can experience pelvic organic prolapse. It can be scary, stressful, and deflating—we know. We also know that you’re not alone, and that there are solutions available to you. If you are dealing with prolapse, you have options. If you’re concerned with risk, there are preventative measures. We can help with both.
