|The Complete FemiScan Care Concept|
Urinary incontinence is a condition in which involuntary leakage of urine becomes a social or hygiene problem and which can be objectively shown.
Urinary incontinence is present in about 5-15% of people aged 15-75 years. In working age individuals, however, the problem is almost exclusively restricted to women.
Embarrassment and Anxiety
Women with urinary incontinence suffer from isolation, absenteeism, restriction of leisure time activities, sexual problems and anxiety. In an epidemiological study carried out in Finland
Stress and Urge Incontinence
The two main types of urinary incontinence.
Urge incontinence is a consequence of hyperactive bladder function in which the patient senses the need to urinate before leakage of urine. Urge incontinence is associated with e.g. recurrent urinary tract infections and central nervous system disorders. About a fourth of urinary incontinence cases are urge incontinence. Urge incontinence can be treated with medicines that relax bladder muscle function.
The most common (40%) incontinence disorder is stress incontinence, in which urine leaks during physical exertion. Other problems are also associated with urinary incontinence, such as fecal incontinence and prolapse of the uterus. Urinary incontinence caused by insufficient support of the pelvic floor can be treated surgically, but surgery can be avoided with many other modes of therapy. Pelvic weakness can cause light bladder leakage (LBL).
When using FemiScan with both biofeedback and electrical stimulation, along with complementary techniques of weighted cones and manual facilitation, BIOMATION will guarantee 85% successful results.
