Traditional incontinence solutions
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.
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).
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.
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).
