A serious medical condition that your patients aren’t talking to you about
If left untreated, urinary incontinence (UI), is associated with physical decline2,3 and may negatively impact measures of cognitive function4,5 and social and emotional well-being.6,7Get facts
The challenges of pelvic floor muscle training
Pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) is globally recommended as part of first-line treatment for UI8 and proven to work, but most women don’t perform their exercises correctly, or at all.9
Over 60% of U.S. women experience UI10
As few as 25% of women with UI seek treatment from their healthcare professional11
Women with UI are at a 30% greater risk of hospitalization12
Women with UI are 2x as likely to be admitted to a nursing facility12
Backed by science, leva is proven to work
Clinical data supports the use of leva for patients with stress, mixed, and urgency UI, including overactive bladder. In our randomized controlled trial with 299 women, the leva group achieved significantly greater improvement on both primary endpoints vs. the Kegels group.1See the data
3 day bladder diary:
leva users reported significantly fewer SUI episodes at 8 weeks
leva users achieved significantly greater symptom improvement at 8 weeks
