Bladder control devices include pessaries, urine seals and artificial urinary sphincters, according to Everyday Health. Bladder control devices are designed to help people with urinary incontinence.
Pessaries are latex or silicon devices that are inserted into the vagina, where they press against the pelvic bone and support the bladder, explains Everyday Health. They come in different forms, such as cube or doughnut shapes, and are prescribed and fitted by doctors. Urine seals are another bladder control device for women with stress incontinence that are placed over the urethral opening to prevent urine leakage. Artificial urinary sphincters are designed for men and involve a cuff around the urethra and a surgically implanted pump inside the scrotum.
