Incontinence – what is this big bad scary word? Whether you are male or female, at some stage in your life you or your loved one will be touched by incontinence.
Incontinence is a term that describes any accidental or involuntary loss of urine from the bladder (urinary incontinence) or bowel motion, faeces or wind from the bowel (faecal or bowel incontinence).
Don’t suffer in silence
Urge, Stress and Mixed Incontinence affects over 4.8 Million Aussies, that is nearly one-quarter of our population!
While there are variations and levels of Incontinence, many are in fact reversible. Incontinence be it Bladder or Bowel is still largely a ‘suffer in silence’ condition due to social stigma. We at Elle TENS Australia want to help change that.

I’m not sure what type of Incontinence I have! What settings do I use?
The SensaTONE urge incontinence program is used when you experience a sudden urge to urinate and cannot make it to the bathroom in time. It is often caused by weak pelvic floor muscles or an overactive bladder. You should notice a difference within 2 weeks of using this program 1-2 times a day.
Our stress incontinence program can be used when the pelvic floor muscles are weakened, causing urine to leak out during activities that put pressure on the bladder, such as coughing, sneezing, exercising, jumping on the trampoline with our kids……..
As the muscles become stronger, they are better able to support your bladder and urethra, reducing the risk of urine leakage. Stress Incontinence improves slowly with building muscle fibre and nerve sensitivity so you will need to be patient and stick with it.
You should notice a difference within 8 weeks of using this program 1 time a day or every other day depending on the severity.
Mixed incontinence is a combination of stress incontinence and urge incontinence and we have a program just for this!
As it is a combination of Urge and Stress incontinence issues, it can take slightly longer, again please be patient.
You should notice a difference within 3 weeks of using this program 1 time a day.
After care program
Our after care program is a maintenance mode to be used after you have been using the SensaTONE on a regular basis and noticed improvement on your condition.
This program can be used for up to 15-30 minutes per day at your discretion.

Elle TENS Testimonials
After the birth of my second child I did months of pelvic floor strengthening (without the sensatone) before getting frustrated that I wasn't gaining much benefit. I asked my physio if there was anything else I could do. She recommended this device.
I have been using it for ONE WEEK and can finally feel significant strength gains and muscle thickening. It seems to have "woken up" muscles my brain wasn’t communicating with effectively.
My husband noticed the difference straight away and was shocked at the improvement. Don't accept a weak pelvic floor after babies! Get this. Get a letter from your doctor/physio and claim it on private health extras, if you can. Or just pay for it.
