INNOVO® – What is it?

INNOVO® (previously known as Vital Compact) is a non-invasive way to restore your pelvic floor, treating the primary cause of urinary leaks rather than just masking the symptoms (you may also be referred by your clinician for Vital Compact which is another brand name of INNOVO®). Using a hand held controller that is attached to a two part garment, INNOVO® sends targeted impulses via conductive pads (attached to your upper thigh and buttocks) to safely and effectively activate all the muscles of the pelvic floor or to calm your bladder. Innovotherapy is a proven technology which has been designed to optimally strengthen your pelvic floor with 180 perfect contractions per session, allowing the device to do your pelvic floor exercises for you. No it’s not cheating, it’s just very clever. Innovotherapy, already used by thousands of people, is safe and can be used in the privacy and comfort of your home for lasting results.

What is bladder weakness?

Urinary incontinence, weak bladder, over-active bladder, urinary leaks… These are just a few of the terms used to describe what commonly happens when you cough, sneeze, laugh or lift or when you simply cannot hold it in like you used too. You are not alone. The first step to addressing urinary leaks is to understand how the mechanics of the body work, and that more often than not, urinary leaks can be due to having a weakened pelvic floor.

It can be incredibly embarrassing and so often suffered in silence but bladder weakness or incontinence in men is fairly common effecting 1 in 10 men.3  Generally experienced by men following prostate surgery, it can be one of the biggest challenges you have to overcome during the recovery process. Currently there are absorbent pants and cups that can be worn to help manage the problem on a day to day basis, but let’s be honest, most men would rather not have to use such attractive items!
