- A non-woven topsheet: soft and dermatologically tested, for maximum comfort, as it is in direct contact with the skin.
- An acquisition layer: to help the urine pass quickly into the absorbent core pad, and maintain dryness during wear.

- Pelvic floor training helps you to strengthen and control your pelvic floor muscles.
- Retraining with intermittent catheterisation, to “decompress” the bladder if you suffer from urinary retention, or with regular catheterisation if you have a “lazy” bladder or a neurological disorder.
- Urethral sling procedure: a sling is created using synthetic material or tissue from your own body, to support the neck of the bladder.
- Urethral tape procedure: a less invasive and increasingly successful version of the previous one.
- Laparoscopic colposuspension,to reposition the bladder neck within the abdomen.
- Fitting an artificial sphincter.
- Nerve stimulation, stimulation and fitting a pacemaker for the sacral nerve (which has a key role in controlling the bladder and intestines). This treatment is for urge incontinence.
