Driven mostly by childbirth, obesity, and aging, one in three women either have or will develop incontinence in their lifetime. “In my past roles I became aware of the intense need for a conservative solution for the treatment of incontinence. Women are dealing with this problem with few successful options other than surgery,” Mattys said. “I have been following Pelvital since its formation in the U.S. in 2016 and am very impressed with the clinical outcomes this new platform technology has achieved. I look forward to being able to help bring FlyteTM to people who need it.”
Jerry holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from The Pennsylvania State University, as well as completing Master level studies in Business from the Katz School of Business in Pittsburgh. He is also a graduate of the Managing High-Tech Company program from Stanford University.
