Urinary Incontinence Appliances, Aids and Equipment
Continence confers comfort and dignity whereas, by contrast, incontinence not only deprives the sufferer of these qualities but also reduces self-respect and confidence. The aim of treating people with incontinence is to improve the quality of their lives because only some can be cured. The management of incontinence of the chronically ill and disabled may be quite different from the management of a patient who is fully ambulant and able to work. Incontinence is often a taboo subject and many patients are reluctant to discuss the problem even with close relatives.
