Fecal Incontinence

A condition that stems from relaxed or incompetent anal sphincter tone which results in the loss of bowel control.

Urinary Incontinence

A condition in which involuntary loss of urine is a social or hygenic problem. Incontinence may be classified by type, e.g. stress, urge, reflex or overflow incontinence.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD)

there are two types of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD); low-tone PFD and high-tone PFD. Low-tone PFD refers to an inability to isolate and contract the pelvic floor musculature in the presence of weak or atrophic musculature, frequently resulting in impairment of muscle isolation, contraction and relaxation.
