Mum-of-three turns to stand-up comedy to tackle the taboo of incontinence

08.03.2017 | Posted in: Advice, Incontinence Exercises, News | Author: Colin

Have you heard the one about the woman who peed her pants?

Probably not, because it’s not often joked about.

But physiotherapist Elaine Miller is tackling the taboo of female incontinence in a stand-up comedy show.

The 45-year-old mum of three describes herself as a “recovered incontinent” and she is hoping her approach to discussing incontinence will help women who are suffering in silence.

One in three women suffer from incontinence and, on average, they wait seven years to get help.

Elaine said, “There is a perception that it’s an inevitable consequence of ageing or parenthood but that’s not true. There is no need to put up with it.”

Do F1 drivers pee in their pants?

25.01.2017 | Posted in: Incontinence Facts | Author: Colin

During a Formula 1 race stopping for a bathroom break is not really an option . . . but what does one do when nature calls?

An average Formula 1 race can last for up to two hours, with drivers consuming large amounts of fluid during the race. This begs the question: Where do they pee during the race?

Stopping for a bathroom break is not an option, and carefully manoeuvring urine into a bottle might not end well.

Lewis Hamilton, a British Formula One racing driver, admits some drivers can’t contain themselves during a race.

“You’re supposed to go in your suit, but I can’t do it. I’ve never done it. But there are drivers that do,” he was quoted in The Mirror.

Apparently some drivers wear incontinence products, but most of them just let nature take its cause.

Mobile app reduces stress incontinence episodes in small trial

14.12.2016 | Posted in: Advice, Stress Incontinence, Urinary Incontinence | Author: Colin

Pelvic floor training by physical therapists can help women reduce stress incontinence—leakage of urine when they exercise, laughs, cough, or sneeze. Swedish researchers wanted to determine whether such training works when it’s delivered through Tät, a smartphone app developed for that purpose.

The researchers studied 123 women who had at least one episode of stress incontinence per week. They randomly assigned 62 to use the app and 61 to continue to use whatever method they were employing to deal with stress incontinence. The women evaluated their symptoms using standardized questionnaires at the beginning and end of the three-month study.

Among the app group, 98% were regularly performing pelvic exercises by the end of the study. About 90% of that group reported improvements in symptoms, compared with 20% of the control group. The group using the app also reported a reduction in the average number of incontinence episodes, from three to one per week. The results were published online Sept. 9, 2016, by Neurourology and Urodynamics.
