    anybody heard of ApexM for bladder control?

    I?d been considering Botox and saw an ad for something called ApexM. Anyone have experience/insight about this? From their ad:

    ?ApexM is the only FDA cleared medical device for home use that treats stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence in women. ApexM sends a calming signal to the detrusor muscle surrounding the bladder that teaches the muscle to relax and not spasm on its own, eliminating urge incontinence.?

    Do you have stress or urge incontinence?

    If not I'm sure insurance will deny such an expensive (I assume) device. If you do have stress or urge incontinence as well as an SCI it seems like you will have to have pretty good motor and sensory function to use the device. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbBCo-DFuV4

        When you have a neurogenic bladder. It is not stress, urge etc.. incontinence. I doubt soothing anything would help.
        If you have a weakened pelvic floor then you would have stress and/or urge incontinence but that is from normal wear and tear and being a woman who births children and anatomical make up.

          This device possibly could help to reduce bladder spasm, but it does not work to empty your bladder, unlike a device like the Vocare (Brindley) system, which I believe is no longer available in the USA. http://ngbladder.org/treatments/4-1-v-1-5.asp
