INNOVO are proud to support The World Federation of Incontinence Patients (WFIP), a global organisation for sufferers of incontinence and related pelvic floor disorders. The WFIP are dedicated to awareness, advocacy and action for the people living with these conditions. The INNOVO team, and our parent company Atlantic Therapeutics, work closely with the WFIP, and together we strive to support the needs of these patients to break the taboos surrounding these all-too common conditions.
On Monday 3 June, the WFIP are holding their first ever forum in Barcelona to raise awareness for issues such as incontinence, bladder weakness, pelvic pain and related conditions. The INNOVO team are excited to be exhibiting and presenting at this prestigious event and will be introducing the INNOVO technology as a conservative therapy for the treatment of incontinence. There will also be discussions with patients about their personal experiences with incontinence and of course, using INNOVO to treat their condition. The theme of the forum is ‘New Challenges About Incontinence and Chronic Pelvic Pain: Strategy, Advocacy and Partnering’.
World Continence Week 2019
This date has been chosen to precede World Continence Week 2019, which runs from the 17 - 23 June. The main objectives of World Continence week, which is an annual initiative, are to draw attention to and increase public awareness of these conditions and highlight the impact urinary incontinence can have on people’s lives. It is hoped that World Continence Week will give sufferers the confidence to seek help and improve their quality of life, so they no longer have to suffer in silence. The INNOVO team have worked closely with the WFIP to create a range of materials highlighting World Continence Week 2019, emphasising the need for access to safe and effective treatments.
How can I support World Continence Week 2019?
You can find and download these materials at wfip.org which will help you to support this cause, and remember every donation to the WFIP fund will help to achieve their mission to work across borders and diseases to improve the lives of people living with incontinence.
Throughout June, INNOVO will be launching a special campaign to help leverage World Continence Week, with a focus on opening up the conversation around bladder weakness as a means of breaking taboos associated with the condition, and encouraging people to do something, rather than continuing to suffer in silence. For updates on this campaign and to be the first to hear about an exciting new partnership, follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
Can INNOVO help my bladder weakness?
INNOVO is a clinically proven, long-lasting solution to bladder weakness, and is the only truly non-invasive, at-home solution available. INNOVO’s unique Multipath technology uses electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to deliver 180 perfect and complete pelvic floor contractions to the entire network of pelvic floor muscles in every 30 minute session. It is a proven technology designed to optimally strengthen the pelvic floor and re-educate the muscles that control bladder function.
INNOVO treats Stress, Urge & Mixed Incontinence and can be used by women and men of all ages. Using INNOVO for just 30 minutes a day/five days a week over 12 weeks has been proven to treat bladder weakness – delivering results in as little as four weeks1.
