What is biofeedback?
In order for children to achieve normal voiding or urinating, it is essential for them to fully relax their pelvic and urinary sphincter muscles. Biofeedback is an innovative and non-invasive therapy that uses a computer program resembling a video game.
Here's what happens with Biofeedback:
- First, skin patch electrodes are placed on the perineum and abdomen to measure the child’s state of relaxation.
- Patients then perform fun, yet challenging exercises through a video game. When a patient successfully relaxes his or her muscles, the patient gains points in the game.
