A gadget lover’s solution for stress urinary incontinence

In association with our friends from INNOVO

Wendy Lauria, senior vice president of brand partnerships at NEWS PRIMER, likes to run. Turns out, running and trying to stay hydrated can be a bladder challenge. More than one in three women of all ages suffer from stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which is when urine leakage is caused by sudden pressure on the bladder, such as from coughing, sneezing, or playing impact sports. Lauria had tried Kegel exercises, the recommended therapy for strengthening pelvic floor muscles, but was never sure she was doing them correctly and they didn’t seem to help. An acquaintance suggested that she try the INNOVO device, which resonated with her: “I’m a great gadget girl. If there is a device that can fix something, I totally agree. ”

INNOVO, which is FDA approved, was invented to help people exercise their pelvic floor muscles correctly, non-invasively, and at home. A thirty minute session provides 180 perfect cones. As it proved in clinical researchWithin twelve weeks of using INNOVO five times a week, the women with SUI were dry or experienced significantly less leakage.

Lauria told us about her own experience with INNOVO and how it has become part of her (admirable) wellness routine.

ALL LIQUIDS

  1. I think I had a pretty good wellness routine before I even added INNOVO. I make a smoothie every morning, usually with spinach, banana, frozen strawberries, almond milk, and lately the new metabolism-boosting superpowder. And I’m a huge fan of High School Genes, again, because my metabolism is something I’m interested in supporting.

  4. I grab GOOPGLOW Morning Superpowder from the pantry in the morning (or G.Tox Detoxifying Superpowder or GOOPGENES Collagen Superpowder). I drink a lot of fluids during the day; I always try to hydrate myself. And that, with operation, is a recipe for leaks.

MOVEMENT

I’m a great runner, which is where I think my incontinence comes from. I adopted my son, so while I am a mother, I did not give birth. I’ve been a runner since high school. I feel like my incontinence probably started when I was in my early thirties, and since then it has become more and more pronounced.

I have been doing Pilates online during the pandemic. I usually Shape, an online subscription series, and I also like Fluid shape. I use a ring-shaped weight, a ball, resistance bands, and ankle or wrist weights. And of course a nice padded yoga mat.

THE GAME CHANGER

  1. I enjoy those exercises and moving, but nothing has consistently worked for my incontinence. I’ve tried Kegel exercises before, but it’s hard for me to tell if I’m doing them correctly, and I don’t think I ever saw any pronounced improvement, so I never stuck with them. However, since I started INNOVO, I have definitely seen an improvement. INNOVO feels like it’s giving me good Kegel exercises. Take the guesswork out. I don’t have to worry if I’m doing them wrong.

    I’ve only been in for five weeks and when I’ve run I’ve had a noticeable improvement when it comes to leaks. Sometimes I leak when I sneeze, and the other day I had three or four sneezes without a leak; I was pleasantly surprised. So I’ll stick with that.

I have been doing my INNOVO routine at night. After putting my son to bed, I put my shorts on. I usually do the lying position, it is more comfortable for me, although you can also do it standing up. It’s easy – you put your shorts on and it works. I lie on the bed and wear it for thirty minutes. It has a timer and turns off automatically. A beep will sound and tell you if the position needs to be adjusted.

The sensation feels like Kegel exercises, but a little out of the body, really interesting. I find it relaxing, like a kind of massage. I usually read emails, scroll through Instagram, talk on the phone, or read The New York Times. Sometimes I do a guided meditation and listen to it. It’s a nice thirty minute break.


In the United States, INNOVO is cleared by the FDA for the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence.
