Urge Incontinence Affects Millions
Urge urinary incontinence: that sudden, eye-opening, you-can’t-fight-it need to pee. When it hits, the proximity to a bathroom means the difference between relief, or disaster. Urge incontinence, also called overactive bladder (OAB), becomes more problematic for individuals with mobility issues.
eCoin tibial stimulation provides an advanced, FDA-approved treatment for urge urinary incontinence (UUI). Using a nickel-sized neurostimulation device inserted near the ankle, you can significantly reduce those constant, daily sudden urges to urinate.
Minor surgical insertion
20 to 30 minutes
1 to 3 days. Keep the incision dry for 14 days by wearing a shower bag on your leg. Then wear comfortable, non-heeled shoes for at least 8 weeks. During those initial 2 months, avoid vigorous activities like jogging, biking, swimming, and other high-foot-impact activities.
