It may be common for some people to experience urine leaks accidentally. Urinary incontinence is a common problem among older adults known as overactive bladder. Bladder issues can be embarrassing and make people avoid everyday activities. But incontinence can be worked upon. During urination, the bladder muscles tighten and push urine through the urethra. The urethra muscles relax and let the urine flow out, but if they relax without any warning, urine can leak out. This is where VTone comes in, an FDA-cleared technology designed to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles to improve symptoms of urinary incontinence.
The treatment is non-invasive and painless, in which VTone uses a single-use electro stimulator, like a small tampon-shaped device. Then the device releases electrical pulses that cause the pelvic floor muscles to contract. It may generally take around 30 minutes but doesn’t cause any discomfort to the patient. It is likely performed in a series of contractions to make the patient feel tightness in the pelvic floor region. Usually, 6-8 sessions over three months are recommended, but it can vary depending on the patient. It helps reduce urinary incontinence and provides greater control of the pelvic region.
