Incostress is a simple reusable medical device that gently supports the urethra (urine tube) and bladder neck preventing unwanted bladder leakage.
Who Will Incostress Help?

How does Incostress Relieve Stress Incontinence?
Incostress is worn discreetly inside the vagina just like wearing a tampon.
When the pelvic floor weakens, the urethra (urine tube) move downwards when pressure is exerted upon it e.g with coughing. This downward movement of the urethra allows urine to escape causing wetness.
Incostress gently supports or holds up the urethra in its natural position without restricting normal bladder emptying.
When pressure is placed upon the bladder Incostress supports and stabilises the urethra in its normal anatomical position preventing preventing unwanted bladder leakage.
