Understanding Continence Care

Incontinence is more common than people think. Between 4 – 8% percent of the world's population are affected by some form of incontinence. In total that represents around 400 million people, making it imperative to increase understanding and knowledge to better meet the needs of people experiencing incontinence.

Prevalence increases with age

The probability for incontinence issues increases with age, but the condition can also be a result of other factors such as obesity, childbirth or neurological damage. On our education page, you can find more information and a guide on the different types of incontinence
