Incontinence Research

Scientific research data have provided evidence that IVES has therapeutic effects on bladder parameters and bladder function.

IVES directly activates bladder afferent mechanoreceptors which lead to a reflexive activation of the detrusor muscle. These mechanoreceptors are partially responsible for the increase in sensation during bladder filling and they also provide the eventual drive for a bladder contraction. Therefore, repeated stimulation of this pathway (IVES) may upgrade and awaken dormant receptors in the bladder as well as stimulate muscle tissue and their corresponding brain counterparts.
