Types of incontinence


Incontinence is the inability to control either urine or faecal elimination. Essentially this means that to some degree you may lose urine or bowel movements at times that you do not choose to do so.

There are four basic types of Urinary incontinence:

Stress Incontinence:
An involuntary loss of small amounts of urine when you cough, laugh, lift or exercise. It can be caused by multiple vaginal births, enlarged prostate, pelvic trauma or loss of pelvic muscle tone. We recommend using Clemens Supreme Pull-ups,Clemens Care Pads or Clemens Contour Shaped Pads.

Urge Incontinence:
Inability to control urinating once you feel the need to void. Simply, you may feel the need to urinate but cannot wait to get to the bathroom. It can be caused by Alzheimer's, Parkinsonism, enlarged prostate, spinal cord injuries or urinary tract infections. We recommend using Clemens Care Pads or Clemens Supreme Pull-ups.

Overflow Incontinence:
Leakage of urine when the bladder is full. For example the person experiences dribbling, frequency, urgency and bladder distention. It is most commonly caused by diseases that cause a blockage of the natural passageway of urine. We recommend using Clemens Contour Shaped Pads or Clemens Supreme Pull-ups.

Functional Incontinence:
Incontinence caused by factors outside the urinary tract, such as immobility or cognitive impairment. These individuals would be continent if the external factor were eliminated. We recommend using Clemens Supreme Pull-ups or Clemens Complete Premium Diapers.
