Testing

Incontinence Testing

Urodynamic testing is an advanced tool to evaluate problems women may have with the emptying of their bladder. Urodynamic testing is available at Lakewood Health System Staples clinic after an initial consultation with your healthcare provider. The test is a simple, 30-minute procedure that uses fiber optic capabilities to measure pressure generated by the bladder. Specialized computer software translates the information to provide valuable data on bladder function to help determine the best possible recommendation for treatment.

Biofeedback involves measuring a patient’s muscle tension and contraction. Special sensors, detect muscle activity and the information is displayed in graph form on a computer screen. This allows the patient to perform exercises and receive feedback on the activity, helping her gain awareness and conscious control.
