Bladder leakage

1 in 3 women over the age of 18 experience urinary incontinence at some stage in their life. Women over the age of 40 are more likely to experience bladder leakage with as many as 2 in 3 women affected. Only an estimated 25% of women who have urinary incontinence seek medical help. This condition remains extremely ‘taboo’. Many women do not identify with the term incontinence which typically makes them think of an older lady with significant degrees of leakage. The term preferred by the majority of women is to call it ‘bladder leakage’.

NICE guidelines recommend electrical stimulation when women are unable to do pelvic floor exercises correctly – and the medical data shows 50% of women are unable to do exercises correctly. Whilst Pelvic Floor muscle exercises should be the first-line treatment for women with bladder leakage when appropriate health professional assistance and training is available, in times when the direct one to one contact is not available alternative treatments need to be considered. Women often find it difficult to perform Pelvic Floor muscle exercises correctly, and many do not adhere well to their treatment regime.

Pelviva has been developed in collaboration with renowned experts in women’s Pelvic Floor and bladder health. It is the only product to provide one discreet, easy-to-use, combined treatment for stress, urgency, and mixed incontinence. Pelviva is a unique product – a single use, disposable intra-vaginal medical device, made from soft compressible foam. Each Pelviva contains a microprocessor which delivers an innovative, patented neuromuscular electrical stimulation treatment programme to train and strengthen the Pelvic Floor muscles. It is clinically proven to treat female urinary incontinence.
