Urinary and Faecal Incontinence is experienced by many. There’s an array of personal and medical circumstances that results in this condition and help is available. It’s vital for all individuals to feel secure, protected and comfortable despite their level of experience with this condition. They, or you, deserve to get on with life knowing you are covered, and Reward Hospitality can help.

This guide is developed to give you an overview of what incontinence is (urinary and faecal) with an introduction to the array of products we offer to give protection, comfort, and wealth of life to anyone and everyone who suffers from incontinence of any level.


What is incontinence

Incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine from the bladder, urinary incontinence, and faeces from the bowel, known as faecal incontinence.

Urinary incontinence affects 1 in 3 women and 1 in 10 men in Australia [Continence Foundation of Australia] with many others likely unreported because they’re too frightened or embarrassed to seek help.


Who is most at risk of urinary incontinence?

Incontinence impacts children, men and women of all backgrounds and health levels and there are some health conditions or life events that put some at greater risk of developing this.



Pre- and post-natal mothers commonly experience urinary incontinence. As the uterus expands, pressure is put on the bladder and pelvic floor muscles resulting in leakages. Increases in progesterone loosen the ligaments and joints so the pelvis can expand for childbirth resulting in leaks of various portions that are experienced before, during, and/or after childbirth.



As women approach or enter menopause, their estrogen levels drop. This hormone is relative to bladder and urethra health and the drop in this hormone results in pelvic floor muscles becoming weak and subsequently light to heavy leaks.


Urinary tract infections

Infections irritate the bladder causing individuals to have strong or constant urges to urinate and on occasion, incontinence. Infections in the kidneys or urethra can develop into incontinence that increases in severity when not treated.


Surgical procedures like prostatectomies or hysterectomies

A prostatectomy is the removal of all or part of the prostate and a hysterectomy is the removal of all or part of the uterus or ovaries. Incontinence occurs during prostatectomies because one of the valves that control the flow of urine is removed with the prostate. Nerve or muscle damage can also occur during this procedure resulting in increased levels of urinary incontinence.

A hysterectomy is a common cause of urinary incontinence in women of all ages, and it can present immediately or many years after the procedure. This is because the pelvic floor muscles are impacted during the operation, nerves can become damaged, and hysterectomies commonly impact the urinary sphincter which helps hold urine in and stop leaking.


Neurological and musculoskeletal health conditions

Multiple sclerosis, arthritis and other diagnoses that fall within these conditions can result in urinary incontinence due to the body's inability to control the urinary tract and muscles.


Other health conditions

Conditions such as stroke, heart conditions, diabetes, obesity or prostate issues can present with various symptoms including urinary incontinence based on a variety of issues that impact the urinary tract and muscles.


This list isn’t conclusive, but it gives a general overview of the vast array of medical and health conditions that can result in urinary incontinence.
