Urinary Incontinence


Urinary incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine. It's a common problem thought to affect millions of people. There are several types of urinary incontinence, including:

  • stress incontinence – when urine leaks out at times when your bladder is under pressure; for example, when you cough or laugh
  • urge incontinence – when urine leaks as you feel a sudden, intense urge to pee, or soon afterwards
  • overflow incontinence (chronic urinary retention) – when you're unable to fully empty your bladder, which causes frequent leaking
  • total incontinence – when your bladder cannot store any urine at all, which causes you to pass urine constantly or have frequent leaking

It's also possible to have a mixture of both stress and urge urinary incontinence.


strengthening pelvic floor muscles may help prevent urinary incontinence. Everyone may benefit from strengthening their pelvic floor. NEptone is a modern electrical pelvic floor stimulation device which helps patients speed-up the pelvic floor muscle strengthening procedure. NEptone is mostly beneficial for stress, urge and mixed urinary incontinence.
