Urinary incontinence is a condition in which urinary
leakage occurs involuntarily. Thus, individuals have little control over when
they urinate. Although the prevalence of urinary incontinence is in both men
and women, the condition is more common among women. In 2017, the American
Urological Association revealed that around one third women in the U.S. have
urinary incontinence and the number is expected to rise in the upcoming years. The
growing number of urinary incontinence cases among pregnant women, stress
related urinary incontinence caused by other medical conditions such as
diabetes and gynecology disorders are some of the factors that has propelled
the demand for female stress urinary incontinence treatment devices in recent
In addition, muscle damage, formation of excess urine, impaired urine storage capacity, and enlarged prostate among others are some of the other major causes of urinary incontinence among women which in turn is likely to boost the growth of the female stress urinary incontinence treatment device market. Over the last decade, the adoption of female stress urinary incontinence treatment device has experienced a notable growth and there is a notable surge in the number of procedures worldwide.
Bladder Support to Manage Urinary Incontinence Garner Popularity
Stress urinary incontinence is a condition that
affects millions of women worldwide. However, advancements in medical devices
especially to treat urinary incontinence have significantly enhanced the
capabilities and functionalities of these devices. Moreover, companies are
focusing on introducing innovative urinary incontinence devices into the market
by leveraging the findings from numerous studies and progress in technology.
For instance, over-the-counter bladder supports have been widely accepted as an
effective device to control urinary incontinence among women. Further, although
there are notable differences, bladder supports in terms of functionality work
similar to a tampon.
The bladder support consist of an applicator which
is present in a tampon. However, silicone structures that contain a
non-absorbent polypropylene covering is present in a bladder support which
distinguishes it from a tampon. Thus, once inserted in required location, the
bladder support expands which provides support to the urethra – enabling
effective urinary leakage control caused by stress including, sneezing,
coughing, exercising, and more.
Bladder supports have emerged as an efficient and
effective substitute to surgery. Moreover, the invasive nature of bladder
supports coupled with comfort are some of the factors that have fueled the
demand for bladder support to manage urinary incontinence.
the Relationship of Urinary Incontinence and Menopause
Urinary leakage is one of the side effects of
menopause. According to several studies urinary incontinence is more frequent
in older women. Moreover, hormonal changes impact the muscle strength around
the pelvic region – thus, the prevalence of urinary incontinence is highly
common among women undergoing menopause. The treatment of urinary incontinence
primarily depends on various factors such as the type of incontinence an
individual is experiencing and the causes of the condition. Besides, among a
host of treatment alternatives that are available to manage urinary
incontinence, electric stimulation of pelvic muscles has gained significant
attention in the last few years. At present, pessary is one of the most widely
adopted prosthetic device to treat stress incontinence that plays a key role in
preventing urinary leakage. Further, several medical experts also recommend the
usage of urethral insert – a disposable urinary incontinence treatment device.
The female stress urinary incontinence treatment device market is expected to witness a considerable growth in the foreseeable future owing to several factors including, growing awareness related to urinary incontinence among women in the developing regions, advent of effective and non-invasive devices, and growing prevalence of urinary incontinence. In addition, several companies operating in the current market landscape are focusing on expanding their product portfolio by developing innovative devices to treat stress urinary incontinence among women.
