The benefits of IncoStress are now recognised “across the pond” with this device now being actively sold in Canada as well as the UK. The device, worn like a tampon, that can help many women who suffer in silence with the Urinary Stress Incontinence – the involuntary loss of urine when, for example, coughing, sneezing, laughing or even when just running.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized Urinary Stress Incontinence as a global issue that can affect as many as 1 in 5 women at any stage in their lives. WHO have stated that too many women “silently suffer from its life-disrupting consequences.”
IncoStress is a petite and discreet device, worn like a tampon, that can help control the inadvertent loss of urine suffered by many women.
IncoStress supports the urethra (the tube that allows loss of urine from the bladder) and supports the bladder neck helping restore it to its anatomically correct position. The ergonomic shape of IncoStress can allow the pelvic floor muscles to be gently exercised, which, over a period of time, could strengthen the muscles. Regular pelvic floor exercises are always recommended and these may be carried out with the IncoStress in place.
Made of medical grade silicone, IncoStress can be worn for up to 8 hours at a time and is environmentally friendly as it can replace six month’s worth of the incontinence pads that are worn by many women suffering with Urinary Stress Incontinence.
