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 years.
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.
Non-invasive 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.
Demystifying 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.
