Leaking Urine Biofeedback

Biofeedback for Urinary Incontinence
Biofeedback involves the placement of a sensor inside the vagina or rectum. The sensor monitors the activity of the muscles that control urination. The person uses the feedback from the computer, in order to learn how to control the muscles effectively.

This is a process that must be repeated many times before a person can learn how to control the muscles. After a person learns how to control the muscles, he or she can perform Kegel exercises correctly.
