Incontinence can be a common problem for millions of people all over the world however the problem is rarely mentioned, leaving few actually aware of what it is.
Urinary incontinence is the lack of control over the passing of urine. There are several different types of incontinence including stress, urge, overflow and total incontinence all of which can be treated, managed and thankfully in many cases cured. Bladder problems affect more then 200 million people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization and in the UK alone it is reported that somewhere between 3-6 million individuals suffer from some sort of urinary incontinence.
Urinary incontinence is a major issue for both men and women, of all ages. Woman are 5 times more likely to develop Urinary incontinence then men, specifically speaking more woman suffer from stress urinary incontinence due to the effects of childbirth and menopause. On the other hand, men are more likely to have urinary retention due to prostate gland enlargement as they age.
Many people who suffer from the condition can struggle when out in public due to lack of effective and hygienic waste disposal facilities in commercial facilities. More often than not there’s no option but to dispose of their ‘offensive’ waste down the toilet which can lead to blockages and bad odours. The lack of correct waste disposal units can be damaging to your washroom facilities which will mean an increase in budget you don’t need to be spending.
In order to provide a caring and considerate environment for those who suffer from incontinence, effective waste bins should be provided in all washroom environments. This means sufferers can feel more comfortable when leaving their home. They can rest assured knowing outside facilities will be properly equipped meeting the needs of their incontinence problem.
