Melbourne, Victoria: SRC Health, a world leading manufacturer of evidence based maternity compression garments for the relief of pain during pregnancy and faster recovery after delivery, has just released SRC Restore, its foray into the continence category for women.
“What makes this revolutionary is the way in which it assists women with Mild Stress Urinary Incontinence and Mild Urinary and Uterine Prolapse by activating their pelvic floor muscles, effectively minimizing and/or preventing leaks rather than being a traditional adult continence products that is focused on leakage absorption,” said Sinead O’Donovan, the founder and Managing Director of the 12 year old company that has effectively pioneered the use of compression garments for pregnancy through to the 4thtrimester periods.
With urinary stress incontinence affecting 37% of Australian women according to the Continence Foundation of Australia, and stress urinary incontinence affecting millions globally, SRC Health is hoping its latest innovation will bring relief to a large number of women and increase awareness around pelvic floor health.
The researchconducted by SRC Health during the product development phase showed 70% of respondents had a statistically significant improvement in their Urinary Incontinence Questionnaire score and their Quality of Life showed a statistically significantly improvement by 37%. SRC Restore has just been added to their online store.
“After having five babies and suffering light bladder leakage, I was keen to give them a go. My lower back is supported and while wearing this garment I no longer need to wear a panty liner, for the leaks. It has given me the confidence to sign up for an exercise class with other mums, without the fear of wetting myself. This is something I would have never done before SRC Restore. I no longer fear coughing, sneezing, or laughing. It’s so nice to go out and know that I won’t have damp knickers, and I can just enjoy myself and get on with living my life. I highly recommend this product.”

The garment has a number of similarities with the other products in the SRC range; sweat wicking properties, quick drying fabric, patented Anatomical Support Gusset Panel, and it’s 100 Wash Tested to ensure a long wearing, non-pilling garment.
O’Donovan accentuates that the garment is less likely to work for those with higher levels of incontinence and prolapse issues, but encourages trial of the garment and guarantees the same “no questions asked 100% Money Back” promise is extended to SRC Restore as the company has across its compression maternity range.
