Facts about Incontinence:
What is urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is defined as ‘the complaint of any involuntary loss of urine’ (Source: International Continence Society 2005).
First of all, incontinence is not a decease, it is a symptom. The field of incontinence is divided into urge-incontinence, stress incontinence, overflow incontinence and faecal incontinence. The different types of incontinence can result in different degrees of leakage. Therefore, continence solutions must always begin with a wide range of different products and efforts to perfectly suited for individual needs. This is the reason why Abena focuses on ‘Continence Management’ as opposed to stand-alone continence products.
