Continence Management

Restoring confidence and dignity to the people affected by bladder weakness

At HARTMANN we focus on the psychological as well as the physical implications of the condition.

Overview of Incontinence

The NHS estimates that between 3 and 6 million people in the UK have some degree of urinary incontinence with as many as 24% of older people affected. Of those older people in institutional care, 30-60% are affected by urinary incontinence.1,2 Severity varies from person to person and both men and women of all ages experience it at some point in their lives. At HARTMANN we recognise we need to do more than address the physical symptoms. So, as well as high leakage protection, we offer discretion, support and advice.
