INNOVO™ are looking to recruit 10 Mumsnetters who experience stress incontinence to test and keep their new pelvic floor stimulator.

Stress incontinence is the term used when leaks accidently occur from coughing, sneezing, laughing, jumping or doing heavy lifting. These simple movements put pressure on the bladder and, should your pelvic floor muscles be unable to tighten enough, will cause a leak. Stress incontinence can also be called bladder weakness or urinary incontinence. Importantly, we are looking for testers who are suffering from a stress incontinence following pregnancy and child birth.

Here’s what INNOVO™ have to say about their product:

‘Innovotherapy is a non-invasive way to restore your pelvic floor, treating the primary cause of urinary leaks rather than just masking the symptoms. Using a hand held controller that is attached to a two part garment, Innovotherapy sends targeted impulses via conductive pads (attached to your upper thigh and buttocks) to safely and effectively activate the muscles of the pelvic floor. It is a proven technology which has been designed to optimally strengthen your pelvic floor with 180 perfect contractions per session, allowing the device to do your pelvic floor exercises for you.
Results from a research study prove that women who experience stress incontinence will experience significant improvements in as little as four weeks by using INNOVO™ five days a week for 30 minutes. After 12 weeks of treatment the participants were defined as being ‘dry’ or ‘almost dry’.* So it won’t take long to get your confidence back’

You can see more information about the product here:

The product is worth £249 and selected testers will be able to keep the product afterwards.

If selected, you’d need to be able to use the product for 30 minutes per day, 5 days a week, over a 12 week period, and we’d also require you to post feedback on a thread on Mumsnet, so please only apply if you are comfortable with this.

All testers who complete the feedback process will be entered into a prize draw where one tester will win a £300 Love2Shop Voucher.

If you’re interested and would like to take part, please sign up here:

We will be in touch with selected testers soon.

I would be interested in this, I wear tena pads and have done for 6 years, I had a prolapsed womb so had a hysterectomy and had a sling on my bladder TOT tape. I am 35 and have 3 children all big babies 9lb 14ozs, 8lb 10ozs and 8lb
This would be awesome to try.

I didn't even know these were a thing, I'd love to try!

This is first cold I've had since giving birth to my giant 10lb DS.... Sneezing and coughing isn't going well. I'm dreading hay fever season. grin

MNHQ! This won't let me complete the form as it asks for a comment on Q.13 when there's no box or reason to add a comment. Also on Q. 8 I'm all 4 of them but it would only let me pick one reason.

MummyBtothree Tue 08-Mar-16 16:57:56

Its only letting me select one answer for question 8 but it affects me with all of those options. Did everyone else just choose one option? Wasn't sure if it was a fault with the form.

DoorbellsSleighbellsSchnitzel Tue 08-Mar-16 16:58:17

Question 8 requires an 'all of the above' option please!

Sarahb8990 Tue 08-Mar-16 17:04:41

It's now allowed me to complete form but still would like to put all down for Q.8

woolypigs Tue 08-Mar-16 17:12:03

I too would have liked all of the above button for Q.8

This is something that is life changing.

InteriorLulu Tue 08-Mar-16 17:12:21

Yes - agreed. Q8 needs an all of the above option!

Fourarmsv2 Tue 08-Mar-16 17:14:25

Same issue as Sarah

MimsyBorogroves Tue 08-Mar-16 17:33:28

Rebecca, I submitted an application but it went back to the survey screen upon submitting rather than a confirmation screen. Please can you let me know if my application is in?

MummyBtothree Tue 08-Mar-16 17:44:57

I sent Rebecca @ MN a pm asking if question 8 could be altered but unfortunately it can't sad

FranksBobot Tue 08-Mar-16 18:29:31

As humiliating as it is I really hope I get chosen for this product test. If it works it really would make a huge difference to my life right now sad

Debsie123 Tue 08-Mar-16 18:37:53

I would love the opportunity to test this product and provide feedback as this problem happens to so many women so it would be good to be able to provide honest feedback on whether this works. I am an older Mum and since having my second child a couple of years ago I do suffer this problem so fingers crossed.

notapizzaeater Tue 08-Mar-16 18:54:37

Mine didn't go to the confirmation screen either.

I need this :-). I'm becoming an old woman before my time

EdYouKateShaun Tue 08-Mar-16 18:59:47

No confirmation screen for me either. I can't say how delighted I'd be to be chosen. This affects my everyday life but I am so embarrassed about it so don't tell anyone. 😢😢

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 08-Mar-16 19:04:13

Have added an all of above at Q8 now

At the end you should be directed to the general insight page

Thanks for the interest! smile

MissRabbitHasTooManyJobs Tue 08-Mar-16 19:26:22

This would Change my life!
My pelvic floor issues have ruined my self esteem and relationship.
About to sign up x

TheSkyesTheLimit Tue 08-Mar-16 19:50:06

Oh my goodness! I would love to try this. After a very traumatic forceps delivery with DD I have struggled to regain any hope of a pelvic floor again. The worst thing was pregnancy-long sickness with DS and I was peeing as I was vomiting. Awful. Fingers crossed! And legs maybe....

Sarahb8990 Tue 08-Mar-16 19:52:38

AnnMumsnet does that mean the ones that have already completed it have been changed to 'all of the above' aswel if they have requested it?

peaz1 Tue 08-Mar-16 19:54:04

I have signed up- I am constantly leaking and its so awful. I have to get up several times at night because I need a wee - I fear that I will have to put up with this forever. It would be incredible if I win... I might just wet myself (and hopefully for the last time ever, too!)

Woodhill Tue 08-Mar-16 20:08:14

Yes please

SweetPeaPods Tue 08-Mar-16 20:43:17

Oh my goodness I never ever thought I'd want to try something like this as much as I do. Please pick me!

PassiveAgressiveQueen Tue 08-Mar-16 22:47:11

I am desperate, i am spending more on tena lady each month than tampax and pads. I can't walk to fast, no way could i take up jogging i would need to return home after 10m to change my pad.
I can't play anything active with either of my kids.

stairway Tue 08-Mar-16 23:50:28

I hope to be picked too. Although I don't have a serious problem at the moment I'm totally pelvic floor obsessed. I use cones but I'm looking for a product with no insertion and less fussing about.
