Let's talk about incontinence treatment

If you’re suffering from passive or stress incontinence where something has physically caused your sphincter to be damaged (like trauma from a prostate- or bladder-related medical treatment), you have a range of incontinence treatment options to choose from.

Traditional incontinence solutions

Behavioural therapy

Several types of behavioural methods are used for treating urinary incontinence, including bladder training, habit training and biofeedback. People who have incontinence due to physical or mental limitations (functional incontinence) can try timed voiding and prompted voiding.

Physical exercises

Movement training and pelvic and related muscle exercises can help improve bladder control. Kegel exercises, where you relax and tighten the muscles that control urine flow, are one type of exercise both men and women can perform to strengthen pelvic floor muscles. The Knack procedure is an intentional kegel contraction in anticipation of standing or lifting.

Diapers and pads

Adult diapers for male incontinence are made in various styles, including those resembling traditional child diapers (attached with side tabs), underpants (protective underwear, pull ups or pull ons), and pads resembling sanitary napkins (known as incontinence pads or bladder control pads).

Collection devices

A condom catheter is a urine storage device that consists of a flexible sheath that fits over the penis just like a condom. The condom catheter is rolled onto the penis and attached to it using double-sided adhesive, a jockey-type strap or a foam strap. The catheter is connected to a tube that drains the urine into a drainage bag.

Penile clamps

A penile clamp is a device that is placed halfway down the shaft and when in place and closed, it compresses the urethra so that urine cannot escape. Men can open and close the clamshell-like clamp whenever they feel the need to go relieve themselves.


In the male sling procedure, synthetic mesh-like tape is surgically placed around the urethral bulb, compressing and moving the urethra into a new position. Alternatively, an artificial sphincter may be surgically implanted to replace lost sphincter function (AMS 800).

New incontinence solution

Contino® is a non-surgical, self-administered medical device that is inserted into the urethra to provide bladder leakage control. Contino® blocks the flow of urine and restricts it from exiting the body until you are ready to release it.

Your Contino® support team provides experienced medical advice during your personalized fitting and whenever you need it as you continue to manage UI, which is a complex and chronic medical condition.
