LARGO, Fla., Jan. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Four (4) million American men have urinary incontinence. They spend $13 billion a year on diapers, catheters and care. Until now, incontinence was embarrassing, messy and unhealthy. But a new inexpensive solution is allowing men to ditch the diapers and free caregivers from hours of messy cleanup. This product is VA and Medicare approved and is accepted by nearly all insurance companies.

Today, men with urinary incontinence are almost exclusively using absorbent products, more often known as diapers and pads. Diapers are bulky, uncomfortable, you have to carry extras with you wherever you go and let's admit it, they stink. It's nearly impossible to attach a dollar sign to the social isolation, the embarrassment and the loss of independence this can cause. Only Men's Liberty is undetectable under clothing and is so light you can sleep through the night.
Prostate Cancer Treatment & Incontinence
Each year nearly 200,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. Almost all of these men will experience urinary incontinence after surgery. Most heal within a few months, but patient surveys indicate that up to 31% experience ongoing urinary incontinence.
Men's Liberty Helps Returning Veterans
Urinary incontinence is also a common secondary effect of spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) – injuries that predominantly affect young men and veterans.
Sergeant Nash is one of these. In 2006, at the age of 24, he was on a brief leave before returning for a second tour in Iraq, when a car slammed into him while riding his motorcycle. Now he uses a wheelchair and has urinary incontinence. At first, Chris used condom catheters that leaked, popped off and caused urinary tract infections. Next were the indwelling catheters that caused bladder infections, skin breakdown and intense pain. Liberty increased Chris's independence and reduced his UTIs and yeast infections. Chris has gotten not just his freedom but his dignity as well.
