You are not alone...over 11 million women in the United States suffer from stress urinary incontinence, the involuntary leakage of urine during activities such as laughing, coughing, and walking. These and other everyday activities put temporary pressure (stress) on the abdomen and bladder. For women with SUI, this pressure can cause urine to leak involuntarily. SUI affects women of all ages including young mothers, pre-menopausal women, and seniors and can result in significant emotional distress.
The underlying causes of stress urinary incontinence are not well understood. Patient satisfaction with current treatment options has been limited. As a result, most patients are managing their urinary leakage with absorbent products including pads or diapers. Solace is working to give these patients, and their healthcare providers, a compelling alternative.
Solaces first product, a non-surgical treatment for involuntary urine leakage will be evaluated in several centers throughout the U.S. in an FDA approved clinical trial. For more information, visit www.bladdercomfort.com..
