Urge Incontinence is when you have any sudden, intense urges to urinate often followed by loss of urine. Urge incontinence is caused by a bladder that contracts when it should not. Urge incontinence is also known as Overactive Bladder (OAB), detrusor instability, or irritable bladder.
Urge Incontinence (OAB)
Urge Incontinence, also known as overactive bladder, or, a little more technical, detrusor instability. If you experience that sudden, irresistible urge to use the restroom or getting up frequently during the night to urinate, that’s urge incontinence. And if you do, you’re not alone — in fact, one out of two women over the age of fifty suffer from this condition.
Urgency symptoms are caused when the muscle surrounding the bladder, the detrusor muscle, contracts when it is not supposed to, causing the urge to urinate.
Attain uses mild muscle stimulation to send a calming signal to the Detrusor muscle surrounding the bladder which teaches the muscle to relax and not spasm on its own, eliminating urge incontinence. Attain is our only device that is FDA cleared to treat urgency/overactive bladder symptoms.
