How to Treat Male Incontinence? – Squeezer Klip

Urinary incontinence is defined as the accidental leakage of urine.  This can be caused by a variety of conditions and can be treated in a variety of ways, such as the Squeezer Klip. The Squeezer Klip is a new form of incontinence care for men.  The Squeezer Klip is designed to fit easily and comfortably to stop the flow of urine.

Common types of incontinence are:

Urinary Incontinence Care

  • Stress Incontinence – the involuntary loss of bladder control as a result of coughing, sneezing, or physical exertion
  • Urge Incontinence – the loss of urine as a result of an urge to urinate that cannot be stopped
  • Overflow Incontinence – the leakage of urine that can result from urinating only small amounts during frequent trips to the bathroom.

In men specifically, urinary incontinence is generally caused by any condition that damages the nerves that send signals between the brain and the nervous system.  These can include

  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Prostate issues

Where the prostate is involved, symptoms may include interrupted urination, weak stream of urine, and leaking.  In cases where leaking or dribbling is the issue, a Squeezer Klip can be an effective solution. This device is discreet and allows the user to lead an active lifestyle without threat of having a urinary accident.  The Squeezer Klip is commonly used in patients who have had a radical prostatectomy, or the surgical removal of the prostate gland, usually as a treatment for prostate cancer.  In the aftermath of the surgery, patients may find they have issues concerning both erectile function and urinary incontinence.  Although the Squeezer Klip does not address problems with erectile function, it has been shown to be an effective solution for patients who find that they have some level of Urinary Incontinence following prostate surgery.

The Squeezer Klip features a foam-covered ridge on the lower part of the device, and it is this ridge that is pressed up against the penis.Gyrx Squeezer Klip Incontinence Control The urethra is compressed and the flow of urine is slowed and eventually stopped.  As the lower arm of the Squeezer Klip presses upward on the lower part of the penis, the upper arm of the Squeezer Klip presses downward onto the penis. Because of the design of this incontinence device,  the veins, arteries and nerves running along the top of the penis are not compressed.  That means that blood flow to the penis is not affected, even while the urinary flow is stopped.

The Squeezer Klip features an adjustment knob that allows for the proper amount of spacing and pressure to be reproduced every time the device is used.  This allows users to not only determine the right amount of pressure for their particular needs, but also to ensure with confidence that the same amount of pressure will be achieved each and every time.
